Pearl Microphones TL4 Stereo Condenser Microphone, High Output Version.

Pearl Microphones TL4 Stereo Condenser Microphone Details

The Pearl Microphones TL4 Stereo Condenser Microphone is the High-Impedance version of the Pearl TL 44 stereo microphone. Though the TL44 is generally preferred and remains the production model, the TL4 can be built to order and delivered in very reasonable time.

The Pearl TL4 utilizes two different microphone capsules that are equal in a mode of application, but they are different in the technical specification. The TL4 uses the classic Pearl capsule with rectangular dual membranes mounted back-to-back in its compact black chrome body. A variety of polar patterns may be obtained by bringing the output of each membrane into separate mixer channels. In effect they provides two discrete cardioid outputs which may be used simultaneously or independently one of the other to obtain cardioid, omni, figure of eight, 180 degrees coincident stereo and virtually any pattern in between by use of the mixing console. The beauty is the versatility which allow it to handle a variety of the tasks at hand. For instance; it may be used as the single stereo microphone for a direct to tape live recording in the afternoon, then be brought back to the studio and used as cardioid mic for an acoustic guitar during a multi-track session in the evening, and then used late a night as a figure-of-eight mic for recording background vocal duet.

Versatility would mean nothing if they did not capture the nuances and life of the performance. By using the rectangular capsule, the achieves a very flat and resonance free frequency response which extends far into the lower frequencies. This makes it an accurate yet flattering microphone for vocals and acoustic instruments, not to mention meeting the challenges of symphonic organ recordings. The sound is further enhanced by use of a transformerless preamplifier circuit which is extremely quiet. The circuit requires 48V phantom power which, when supplied, illuminates a LED. Best of all the microphones is very reasonably priced which makes it perhaps the best value of any microphones, today. Look at the versatility and listen to its sound. The TL 4 as well as the TL 44 will complement your current microphone collection no matter how wonderful it is and we believe it will soon become one of your most frequently used tools. The model TL 4 is, compared to the TL 44, an so-called "High-Level-Microphone" and provide an approximately 20 dB higher output level than conventional condenser microphones. It also means that this microphone request an input impedance of at least 6k ohm.

Special Note

The Pearl TL4, when compared to it's low-impedance counterpart, the Pearl TL 44, is a "High-Level-Microphone" and provides a higher output of approximately 20 dB more than conventional condenser microphones. It also means that this microphone requires an input impedance of at least 6k ohm for optimal operation. The Pearl TL 44 is the most popular version and remains the production microphone of this unique capsule arrangement application.

As a result, the TL4 is BUILT TO ORDER and can be delivered within a reasonable time-frame from the factory in Sweden.
