Cardioid Condenser Microphone

Edna is a small diaphragm (16mm) condenser microphone designed for stage and studio mic’ing of acoustic instruments. It is built using the TSB-160A electret capsule.

Though Edna is a small-diaphram mic, it shares many characteristics with the large-diaphragm mics in the Ear Trumpet line. For instance, it has the same internal silk and mesh pop filtering. Also, Edna is a side-address design like Louise, Myrtle, and several other Ear Trumpet mics. And, since Edna is designed to be usable in a live situation, it has the same feedback-rejection characteristics as its sister microphones.

Since the larger Ear Trumpet microphones are so visually distinctive, being built from plumbing flanges, spare parts, etc., Edna was designed as an onstage companion to maintain that look alongside its sister microphones.

Edna has no low-cut filtering, so it will exhibit a proximity effect when placed very close to a source. However, like the Myrtle microphone, Ear Trumpet suggests Edna be placed 6” or more from the source to hit its “sweet spot”.
