Manufacturer's Description from Ear Trumpet

The louise is a Large-diaphragm condenser microphone spring-suspended in a pivoting slim stainless steel ring. Tuned for live performance use, ideal for micing small acoustic ensembles. The new classic bluegrass mic.
Louise 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. 
She can also bring that winning sound into the studio, capturing vocals and acoustic instruments with straightforward clarity.

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.
