Neumann : About
It is difficult to imagine a professional audio studio without a Neumann
microphone. For decades, Neumann has been regarded worldwide as the
standard-setting, leading manufacturer of studio microphones. Many
products introduced in the history of the company have become milestones
of professional audio technology. It is no accident that when listing
their equipment, audio studios almost always put Neumann microphones
at the top of the list – they are a recognized sign of a highly professional
“Our decades of success are based on an uncompromising,
quality-oriented approach, in both the development and manufacture
of our products,” explains Wolfgang Fraissinet, President of Marketing/Sales.
“On the rare occasions that servicing is required, Neumann Berlin
repairs all of its microphones produced since the second world war,
to a large extent using the original spare parts.” This is a servicing
pledge which is hard to equal.
All this gives the customer the certainty of acquiring a product with
unsurpassed sound quality, reliability and lasting value, an investment
that usually survives several generations of audio engineers. Although
Neumann microphones certainly are not cheap, professionals know from
their daily experience that they are worth the cost. Many owners of
small home recording studios also dream of someday having “a real
Neumann” of their own.
In addition to countless audio engineers who use Neumann microphones
in their studio productions, users of the high-tech products from
Berlin include world-famous musicians such as the Beatles, Natalie
Cole, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion and Beyoncé.
