Pearl ELM-C is the cardioid version of the ELM-series, built around Pearl’s spectacular extended rectangular capsule.

This cardioid version of the ELM-series provides a rich and detailed sound even in less-than-ideal acoustical environments. Excellent for orchestral recordings.

The 7:1 length/width ratio of the capsule means that the polar pattern is that of a cardioid in the horizontal plane while it vastly reduces high frequencies in the vertical axis, a property that can be extremely useful for reducing unwanted reflections from the floor and ceiling, providing the audio engineer with a valuable tool with which to handle poor room acoustics and other challenging recording situations.

Just like the Pearl 2800 rectangular capsule (seen in CC 22) , 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, making the ELM-C excellent as part of a stereo pair.

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.

ELM-C is finished in piano black ED lacquer with a yellow logo, ring and engraved model number.
