Ear Trumpet Labs has announced Josephine, the newest addition to their product line of microphones handcrafted in Portland, OR.
The company tells us that the medium-large diaphragm (26mm) condenser microphone is designed for live vocal and ensemble use, with an avant-garde styling evocative of 1930s and 40s classic microphones and is optimized for use by singers or acoustic ensembles from 6" to 48" away. They say that the design, form-factor, and sound are ideal for period swing or jazz vocalists or single-mic techniques with bluegrass or traditional musicians, with significantly better feedback rejection than the large diaphragm condener's typically used in these applications.
Founder of Ear Trumpet Labs, Philip Graham told us, "The original Josephine was actually the first model that I designed, and the first affirmation of the sound quality that was achievable with this capsule and circuit design. We've learned a lot over the last two years about improving feedback rejection and usability onstage. I've always loved Josephine's bold geometry and wanted to revisit it with a design that is extremely practical for live stage use. I love that she's sleek, eye-catching, and incorporates all we've learned about building the best mics for live acoustic music."
