Ear Trumpet Labs create refined, handmade artisanal microphones one at a time in their Portland, Oregon workshop.
Evelyn is a stereo mic consisting of two closely matched large-diaphragm capsules mounted in individually pivoting head baskets spaced at the correct distance for the ORTF stereo recording technique. Both the capsules and the JFET transistors for each side of the stereo pair are exactingly hand-matched for perfect stereo imaging. The electronics are hand-wired using the finest components, and the result is spectacularly natural stereo sound.
Evelyn makes an easy-to-deploy stereo drum overhead or room mic, but she is also adept at many applications beyond standard stereo miking. With her heritage from the acclaimed Ear Trumpet Labs Edwina, one of the finest live mics available, Evelyn makes an ideal live miking solution for acoustic ensembles from traditional bluegrass bands to string quartets, with great feedback control and off-pattern rejection.
Of course, the striking design of Evelyn complements the stunning sound; everyone will be pleased to work with her, and on a live stage she looks distinctive and gorgeous. Our solid designs are hand-made from copper plumbing pipe and fixtures, electrical flanges, brass, and stainless steel.
Each mic includes a standard 5-pin XLR to dual 3-pin XLR adapter cable, and the pinout is standard so other stereo cables can be used. Each Evelyn comes in a solid metal tool case with hand-cut foam lining.
