I've got a TLM 103 in need of a new capsule. After reading up on it, it looks like a k87 sub can be used, is this correct? Does anyone have a good recommendation for a replacement capsule or any advice?
Hello guys, an old friend of mine gifted me his old and dead Neumann TLM103, what kind of projects can I make with it? He’s not passing audio and I can’t say if it’s capsule related or circuit, but capsule seems a little bit strange. Suggestions?
It belongs to the studio I work in. I was told there was a fingerprint or something similar on it and when I opened it to have a look the gold plating was half gone. Looks like someone tried to clean it and rubbed it all off.
The TLM103 uses a 'flat' circuit, so I suppose a K87 capsule will result in a very bright microphone.
IMHO a K47 capsule would be more appropriate. (It will be a 'different' microphone after the capsule swap anyway...)
