Ear Trumpet Labs Edna


Small-diaphragm side-address condenser microphone in a lollipop style housing made from plumbing flanges and stainless steel bolts. Acoustically very accurate, with a full, even frequency response, a neutral, natural character, and a very smooth high end. Because of her clarity and fast transient response, she excels with acoustic instruments, especially guitar, but also violin, mandolin, and cello. She compares very well with any high-quality SDC. Visually striking, retro-industrial styling combined with great, accurate, detailed sound. Cardioid pick up pattern, with great rejection of off pattern sound, makes for easy use in a live mix.
