Pearl ELM-B is the bidirectional edition of the ELM-series, built around Pearl’s spectacular extended rectangular capsule.

The 7:1 length/width ratio of the capsule means that the polar patterns looks like a standard bidirectional/figure-8 in the horizontal plane, while it vastly reduces high frequencies in the vertical plane, a property that can be extremely useful for reducing unwanted reflections from the floor and ceiling, providing the audio engineer with a valuable tool to handle poor room acoustics and challenging acoustical environments.

Just like the Pearl 2800 rectangular capsule (seen in CC22), the longer ELM capsule combines the best characteristics from large and small diaphragms, i.e. low noise, detailed transient reproduction and an extremely smooth off-axis response.

ELM-B is excellent as part of a stereo pair. Combine two ELM-B’s for Blumlein stereo, or pair the ELM-B with a cardioid microphone for an M-S stereo setup.

In combination, the unique characteristics of the ELM series microphones make them outstanding for orchestral and choral recordings and, as a result, they can be found with symphonies and opera houses all over the world.

The ELM-B is finished in piano black ED lacquer with a red logo, ring and engraved model number.
