At the recent AES tradeshow in New York (October 7-10), Independent Audio, exclusive North American distributor for Pearl Lab (Astorp, Sweden) debuted the Pearl Lab OM 16 microphone.
The Pearl OM 16 is a small omni-directional microphone with a transformerless circuit design that requires 48-volt phantom power. The Pearl OM 16 has a very flat frequency response with a boost from 5 kHz to 12 kHz of 3 dB at 8 kHz. The OM 16 sounds natural and uncolored and is designed for multiple applications.
Company president Fraser Jones commented that, “Pearl Lab microphones are, unfortunately, the best kept secret in the recording industry. Pearl’s innovative use of dual-membrane, rectangular capsules and uncompromising natural sound astonishes listeners with its sound quality and natural air. It is our goal to demo the range of Pearl Mics to as many people as possible so that their spectacular sound will be appreciated.”
