Mic #3 Answer

Mic #3 is a TransformerLess Microphone: the Neumann TLM-170 R. There is a lot to like about this microphone, notably: a wide selection of polar patterns, nearly flat frequency response through all of the patterns, and a max dB SPL of 154 (padded). Ron Streicher and others especially like the TLM-170 to record choir.

Here’s an unobscured pic of the microphone’s back along with a few other views. Click any image to enlarge.
