Ear Trumpet Labs Louise Condenser Microphone
The Ear Trumpet Labs Louise Condenser Microphone is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone spring-suspended in a pivoting slim stainless steel ring. Tuned for live performance use, ideal for micing small acoustic ensembles. The new classic bluegrass mic.
Louise has the clarity, gain, feedback resistance, and full, natural frequency response to change the game when it comes to live single-mic situations. It has a pleasing high end with no harshness, and a sound that performers, audiences, and engineers all describe as astonishingly natural.
The Louise can also bring that winning sound into the studio, capturing vocals and acoustic instruments with straightforward clarity.

What We Think
With the Louise, build quality, looks, performance it's all there. Like all Ear Trumpet mics, it has that attractive steam punk look to it. The sound? It has an airier open top end, smooth full mids (with a little less bloom in the low mids), and a rounded bottom with a fairly fast roll off. This one, I really liked on vocals. It was clear but sweet, just a nice smooth softness to the upper mids and top end. Very pleasant to listen to. The mids were full enough to give strength to the voice, but not muddy at all. The low end was there for the foundation, but only enough was there it wasn't over done or boomy. I did like it on acoustic guitars, but not as much as the Edwina. Or well better stated, I like the Edwina more on my acoustic. Given the performance on acoustic, I do think the Louise would be great on mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, stringed instruments of that nature. It would probably be a sweet mic for drum overheads as well.
