Ear Trumpet announces new Josephine mic

Ear Trumpet Labs has announced its new Josphine microphone.

A medium-large diaphragm (26mm) condenser microphone, Josephine is designed for live vocal and ensemble use, with an avant-garde styling evocative of 1930s and ‘40s classic microphones.

The mic is suitable for singers or acoustic ensembles from 6” to 48” away.

“The original Josephine was actually the first model that I designed,” Philip Graham, founder of Ear Trumpet Labs, said. “It was 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.”

The design is largely comprised from standard hardware elements and features a spherical stainless steel mesh headbasket spring-suspended in a six-inch diameter copper. The headbasket incorporates a silk and foam pop filter, as well as Sorbothane shock and vibration damping to minimize handling noise, and internal rubber baffles to shape the sound of the mic.
