Ear Trumpet Labs Josephine


Large-diaphragm condenser microphone spring suspended in a large, elegant copper ring. Tuned for live performance use, ideal for miking small acoustic ensembles.
Josephine has the clarity, gain, feedback resistance, and full, natural frequency response to change the game when it comes to live single-mic situations. She has a pleasing high end with no harshness, and a sound that performers, audiences, and engineers all describe as astonishingly natural.
