Default Rode NT1000 or Neumann TLM 103?

I'm looking to pick up another large diaphram mic primarily for acoustic intruments. I'm familiar with the Neumann, not so with the Rode NT1000. Who has experience with both... thoughts? Price not the issue.

Thanks

When you say mainly instruments, what exactly are you referring to? There have been ads claiming the NT1000 is like a TLM103. While I personally do like the NT1000 quite a bit, it's no TLM103, sorry. But these are primarily vocal mics and well, they do sound good on acoustic guitar as well. But if you're referring to instruments, are you talking about strings? horns? guitars? etc.... Please list what it is your doing and I'll see what kind of recommendations I can make.

i've a matched pair of tlm103 and i think they're good allround.
i have worked in a studio who had nt2's which were good, but i
like the tlm's a lot better. (altough the multipaterns were handy).
greetings, tantejo

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">To be more specific...acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo. I use a U87, 149 and AT4050 now. Instead of getting another U87 I figured the 103 because I don't need the patterns. Curious about the Rode though. I've heard good things.

Thanks

I really have to recommend an AKG C451B for what you're doing. This is a small diaphragm condenser that is ideal for instrument miking. It is flat from 200Hz to 5kHz, then has a presence peak. I'm almost done writing a review on this microphone (it's a short one), if you email me directly at blyons@audioandmidi.com or brad_lyons@sweetwater.com , I'll forward it to you tomorrow. It's a great microphone for exactly what you are doing and is half the price of a TLM103.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">AKG 451 is an awesome microphone, however,it's not a good vocal mic. The great thing about the TLM 103's is that it serves well as a vocal and instrument mic. Great presence, and a really full bottom end (almost too full if you use it up close). In essence, the TLM 103 is a great all purpose mic, unless you require multiple polarity patterns.

Hey Brad (or anyone who can answer) I've got an original 451 EB that I find quite noisy - are the newer ones quieter? Were the originals a little noisy, or is it just mine? Thanks for any info!
