Manufacturer's Description from Pearlman

The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone was designed by and is hand made by Dave Pearlman of ROTUND RASCAL RECORDING STUDIO.  It is a high quality microphone made for professional studio use but priced for the home recordist.  Many studios using digital recording, (Pro Tools, etc.), need a front end system to warm up their recordings. NO GMOs.

A large diaphragm, 6 micron, gold sputtered capsule sends the incoming signal to a New Old Stock EF80 tube (electrically identical, except for the heater voltage, to the very expensive Telefunken VF14  used in the famous Neumann U47) to the hand-wired circuit which includes selected WIMA polypropylene coupling capacitors to a state of the art output transformer custom designed (to match the European Tube output impedance) by the wonderful folks at CINEMAG Transformers in Los Angeles.  

This is NOT an assembly line microphone; each unit is hand-wired, point to point, and voltage tuned for maximum performance.  The microphones were originally built to fill the need for more high quality tube microphones and are now in demand by everyone who has heard them.

If you’re looking for a tube microphone with characteristics similar to the venerable Neumann U47 but at a tenth of the cost, then you will love this mic!              

Every set includes:  The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone, custom built power supply, custom tube microphone cable with Neutrik and Mogami, a heavy duty shockmount and aluminum shipping case.
