Ear Trumpet Labs' Nadine Mic for Upright Bass Instruments

Debi Moen
New Gear

Ear Trumpet Labs' Nadine, a new microphone designed specifically for upright bass, features a tail and a body, with a 14-inch Mogami cable connecting the two parts, making it easy to place the mic on any bass and remove it easily for touring. It is named for Nadine Landry of the Foghorn String Band. Nadine is a medium-large diaphragm condenser microphone that promises to capture the natural acoustic sound of the upright bass, picking up as much of the surface sound as possible while highlighting its rich low end. With great feedback rejection, it is well suited for live players to use with stage monitors.

Lectrosonics introduces a new micro digital recorder, the PDR (Personal Digital Recorder) for professional use. For situations in which the distance is extreme or where using a wireless microphone is not practical, the PDR recorder can travel with your subject and capture professional quality audio, synchronized with timecode. The tiny size and rounded shape make the PDR unobtrusive and easy to place in garments and costumes, and easy to conceal when used as a “plant” microphone to capture environmental or location sound.
