Oh, my.

I wonder if we’ll see a review?

On a vaguely similar subject, is there a reason why the TLM107 was never reviewed? It doesn't seem to be discussed much here either. It's the most recent new Neumann model as far as I'm aware - a flop?

That's a question for Chris Korff, our section editor for electro-acoustic toys. Neumann are usually good about sending review samples, but I've no idea if we received one. If we did, it didn't come my way...

Don't fret. It looks just like a U87 to someone not in the know, which is most of the people through the studio, so save yourself some thousands and get a U87 ...

No real reason that I can remember, and certainly not a good one! I remember it being announced a few years ago (at an AES show, I think?), and we reported on it at the time, but there's often quite a delay between the announcement and the actual shipping, during which time the trail can sometimes go cold. Neumann/Sennheiser also aren't one of those 'shouty-marketing-look-at-me!' sorts of companies (God bless them), and it's not something they ever pushed for.

I'm more than happy for Hugh to review it though, if there's sufficient interest?

There’s always interest in Neumann microphone reviews!

Please do review the U67 reissue! - just don't say it's only fit for use as a rolling-pin or anything as I've ordered one!
I sold my old 67 (1963) in November 2017 with no knowledge of this re-issue, it sounded great but I was always paranoid about aging components. I keep samples of all mics that come through the studio through the same chain, so ill be able to do a direct (ish) comparison when it arrives.

Best regards,

Darren.

No, the rolling pin is the C1000 :bouncy:

You can't even use the C1000 as a rolling pin, it's not round enough!
