Pearl Priority Condenser Microphone
All round. Large membrane. Fixed cardioid. 5 kHz Boost. Stainless steel.
Pearl PRIORITY is a large membrane condenser microphone with a fixed cardioid pick-up pattern. This all-new design has got a completely new membrane,
designed to facilitate production and thereby enabling a lower
price. And of course, it is a rectangular membrane!
The Pearl PRIORITY is equipped with the brand new 2900 single membrane rectangular capsule. The capsule has an unusually large membrane for a single membrane capsule which contributes to the astonishing sonic capabilities of the Pearl PRIORITY.
The frequency response curve of the Pearl PRIORITY is just as flat as all other Pearl microphone products. Pearl PRIORITY is an all-round microphone and can be used for any acoustic instrument or for vocals. However, Pearl PRIORITY’s capsule has been deliberately tuned and the frequency curve shows a slight increase (2-3 dB) around 5kHz which corresponds to the “presence increase” often sought after, in particular for vocals.
The appearance of the Pearl PRIORITY is different from the CC22/ELM range of microphones. The Pearl PRIORITY will have a somewhat larger stainless steel housing and features a green LED on the front side of the microphone, which should be appealing to home studio owners and vocalists who can actually see their microphone being powered up. Pearl PRIORITY will be delivered in a smart, whisky-bottle style carton with an additional storage pouch. A simple clip will be included in the delivery, and more elaborate shock- mounts will be available separately.
