Trumpet Debuts Beautiful Evelyn Stereo Mic
Modern Electronics with
in a Striking Vintage Look
Ear Trumpet Labs, a privately owned company in Portland
OR that makes handcrafted microphones, today announced the release of a new
stereo microphone, Evelyn. Evelyn is a stereo mic consisting of two closely
matched medium-large diaphragm capsules mounted in individually pivoting head
baskets spaced at the correct distance for the ORTF stereo recording technique.
Both the capsules and the JFET transistors for each side of the stereo pair are
exactingly hand-matched for perfect stereo imaging. The electronics are
hand-wired using the finest components, and the result is spectacularly natural
Evelyn makes an easy-to-deploy stereo drum overhead or
room mic, but she is adept for many applications beyond standard stereo miking
as well. With her heritage from the acclaimed Ear Trumpet Labs Edwina, one of
the finest live mics available, Evelyn makes an ideal live miking solution for
acoustic ensembles from traditional bluegrass bands to string quartets, with
great feedback control and off-pattern rejection.
Of course the striking
design of Evelyn complements the stunning sound; everyone will be pleased to
work with her, and on a live stage she looks distinctive and gorgeous. Our solid
designs are hand made from copper plumbing pipe and fixtures, electrical
flanges, brass, and stainless steel.
Each mic includes a standard 5-pin
XLR to dual 3-pin XLR adapter cable, and the pinout is standard so other stereo
cables can be used. Each Evelyn comes in a solid metal tool case with hand-cut
