Product Description


Large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone with rectangular capsule

Conventional microphone capsules are round. It's an easy shape to produce but it has one significant disadvantage a primary resonance frequency. That's why so many microphones have unnatural boost in the 5-10 kHz region. Pearl's rectangular capsule has almost no resonances at all, a fact that pleases many audio engineers.

Pearl has made rectangular capsules for many years now, but never before with such an extreme (7:1) length/width ratio. The resulting polar pattern is that of a cardioid in the horizontal plane while it vastly reduces high frequencies in the vertical axis. This is very useful when isolating a sound source from, say, floor and ceiling reflections.

Pearl ELM-C can be used MS stereo setup (in conjunction with a figure-of-eight microphone, such as the Pearl ELM-B) or when used in a pair for XY stereo use.

The ELM-C is finished in piano black ED lacquer with a yellow logo, ring and engraved model number.
