Manufacturer's Description from Ear Trumpet

Our most popular special order, released as its own model! Sounds just like Myrtle, looks like Edwina, with a snappy brass bracket to set it apart. For a number of years people have requested a lower-profile ensemble mic. They wanted the sonic characteristics of our most popular ensemble mic, Myrtle (full low-end response, flexibility for multiple players), with the portability and sleekness of our signature Edwina. We have been building this hybrid model as a custom special order for a number of years and have decided to introduce it to our standard line of microphones. A large-diaphragm condenser microphone with distinctive but not domineering looks. Delphina takes the warm, detailed sound and astonishing feedback rejection of our standard Edwina, and adds a low-end tuned for accurately capturing acoustic instruments from any distance, just like our popular Myrtle. 

 

This model has been a favorite of Del McCoury’s for the last two years, and we wanted to honor the silver-haired king of bluegrass in the product name… introducing Delphina!

 

For a crisper tone with a bit more presence for the same applications, consider Louise/Josephine. For the same tone in a spring-suspended design, consider Myrtle. For a similar tone in a design tailored for closer micing, consider Edwina.

 

FEATURES

 ♦ Hand-made microphone with unique appearance

 

 ♦ Side or end address, using pivoting brass bracket

 

 ♦ Capsule and electronics tuned for close to medium distance use on the most difficult stages with excellent feedback rejection

 

 ♦ Internal shock dampers for minimal handling noise

 

 ♦ Integral silk and mesh pop filter, for effective control of plosives without loss of clarity

 

 ♦ Transformerless FET fully balanced electronics

 

 ♦ Highest quality hand-wired electronic components - film caps, precision resistors, hand tested and matched transistors, with component values tuned for the individual circuit.

 

SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS

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

About Manufacturer

Ear Trumpet Labs is the unholy offspring of a former software engineer with a habit of building audio gear. Having learned the arcane secrets of microphone construction from his betters, he set about finding the coolest looking, most unlikely components with which to make bodies for his babies.

Emerging from the dark, he held before him the talismanic sound-art pieces that would light the path forward for a new workshop. In constant flux and experimentation, the microphones of Ear Trumpet Labs are all glimmering spots of distinctive light in a world of boring same-old.

We love to hear from artists, musical and otherwise, that want to use our mics, or build their own, or collaborate in some way. Drop us a line.
