BackStage with my Neumann TLM 103


In this video I take you behind the scenes in my voice over studio and show you some of the fun toys. The Neumann TLM 103 is my microphone!

The TLM 103 is one of the biggest successes in Neumann’s history. Its pristine, clear sound is a modern update on the classic U87…which is longer and heavier and well, who needs it!

Also the 103 is 1/2 the price so…it was perfect for a cheapo like me who wants to save a penny but sound damn good too!

It comes in a nickel finish, weighs in at one pound and is delivered in this beautiful wooden box that for some reason I keep my guitar picks in.

The TLM stands for “transformer less mic”…it’s a cardioid condenser microphone with a gentle presence boost for a stunningly direct sound with breathtaking definition and ultra low noise…and it’s the kind Howard Stern uses!

Just look at the lines of the grill. It’s so sexy so sleek! And makes my voice sound exactly the same way!

Welcome to the party, my friend! Relax, kick back, grab a beer…

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m still close friends with the guys I hung out with in grade school. I’ve stayed tight with them throughout the years for some of the same reasons my clients connect with me. If you’re looking for a trustworthy, reliable, easygoing drinking buddy with a voice to match, I’m your guy!

I’ve chilled with Coca-Cola and Corona, worked hard with John Deere and Wrangler, and gone deep with Nissan and SAP.

Think of my voice like the end of a good party. We’re on the edge of a cornfield, the majority of the group is asleep and the brake lights have disappeared down the dirt road. Casual, familiar, down to earth. This is the time of night when the line is blurred between friends and family, and the conversation gets deep. It gets sweet. It gets…real.

Welcome to the party, my friend!
