A quality made microphone with a finished sounding output
I've owned this TLM49 since 2007. I've used it mostly on my voice and it works very well. I tend to get a slightly finished sound with this mic. A slight mid EQ adjustment and some dialed in HF and it cuts through my mix. I mainly use this mic on voice which is what is designed for. Opinions are subjective so you need to try it yourself. At the same time, I suggest that you ignore all the abrasive complaints against this microphone. I've heard crazy complaints about this and several other mics (especially Neumann's). It makes me wonder if people know what they are talking about... what signal chain did they use? What kind of vocal? What were they looking for? I've used the TLM 49 going through several analog pre-amps as well as directly into my Apogee and it has worked flawlessly for me. So give it try as you would any other microphone. You may see that it's rather underrated as I do.
