"The Pearl" Series of professional electrostatic microphones are designed for both handheld stage performances and studio vocal recording where sound quality and musical character is of the utmost importance. "The Pearl Standard" uses a medium single-diaphragm transducer which provides a modern, detailed vocal sound with airy highs, extended vocal presence and optimized low-end response. "The Grand Pearl" uses a large dual-diaphragm transducer which provides the warm, classical vocal sound usually associated with vintage vocal studio microphones.
These innovative microphones introduce a new physical design with a rear-ported spherical head and a special narrow tapered form reflector to reduce internal resonances and reflections and optimize the unidirectional cardiod polar pattern.
A soft center band around the circumference of the head minimizes shock and handling noise. Rugged microphone construction and internal shockmounts effectively reduce stand rumble, outside infrasonic interference and mechanical shocks.
The internal phantom powered preamplifier’s Class ’A’ fully discrete transformerless circuit provides high output, flat audio response and ultra low distortion and noise. The output connectors are gold plated for best possible signal transfer. "The Pearl" is ready for noise-free handheld or stand use. A flexible stand holder is supplied with microphone. FRR is an optional unique reflection ring accessory which is used as a tool to slightly alter directional characteristics and frequency response by positioning at different points along the microphone body.
