Vocal test of Neumann TLM 49

Hi Guys,

I'm strongly considering buying a new microphone for my studio but I want to test everything before I make the decision which one to buy.

I only record vocals, as I'm only a singer, singing persian music where it is very important to have a good vocal sound. My budget is about $2,000 and my immediate suggestion was Neumann TLM 49 as I've heard lots of good things about it.

Anyway I would be very happy if anyone can make a vocal test for of the microphone, with music and without music. If you make one with music, it's important for me to have a reverb on and that the vocal's volume is clearly higher than the music.
If you don't have the TLM 49 but you have a great vocal mic in the same price range, than you can also upload your test.

Thx very much in advance

Just posted TLM49 files today:


Results won't be posted for a few days. I'd recommend you try mics out at studios in your area first; some voices are not good matches with some mics.
