If you're looking for a deal get this microphone. The new model costs 2x as much. New pre-amp that reduces self noise by 3db. I would challenge anyone to distinguish between this one and the new one. Same capsule and outstanding sound quality. Blows the TLM103 out of the water in my opinion.
Solid, super well built professional STUDIO microphone, solid state/transformer-less 'pletharos' design. Multi-pattern. Incredibly low self noise. LARGE diaphragm condenser.
