Ear Trumpet Labs Myrtle


Large-diaphragm condenser microphone with spring suspended retro styling. Ideal for live vocal performance use, or single-miking small acoustic ensembles.

Myrtle has the most classic vintage styling of any of our mics, with a design pedigree straight from the 1930s. Her sound, however, is a wonder of modern acoustic design that thrives in current stage environments. She takes the warm, detailed sound and astonishing feedback rejection of Edwina, and adds a low end tuned for accurately capturing acoustic instruments from any distance. Her sweet spot extends from six inches out. And she has the low noise and natural clarity to work wonderfully in the studio as well.


Ideal for single-miking soloists or small acoustic ensembles, including acoustic instruments and multiple vocalists, on stage or in studio.
