Manufacturer's Description from Ear Trumpet

Nadine is a medium-large diaphragm condenser mic specifically designed for use on upright basses. The low end is tuned to give a flat response at the mounting distance, and the cardioid pickup pattern provides very natural sound by picking up as much of the surface of the bass as possible, within the constraints of the close placement. There's great rejection off the back of the mic, allowing use with stage monitors.
 
Physically, the mic is separated into the body, which securely straps to the tailpiece with velcro elastic, and the head, which mounts easily between the strings above the tailpiece using a rubber grommet. The 14-inch Mogami cable that connects the two parts makes it easy to place the mic ideally on any bass. This mounting system makes Nadine both easy to move from instrument to instrument and secure enough to leave on one bass permanently. After years of being asked for a mic specifically designed to meet the needs of the acoustic upright player, we think we've found the best design yet for this demanding application.

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.
