  • Pearl introduce the ELM-T Bernt Malmqvist Signature Edition tube microphone 

    In the world of microphones, it is near impossible to find someone with a longer career than Bernt Malmqvist. Mr. Malmqvist started working for Pearl Microphones in Sweden in 1954 and has at age 86 amassed an astounding 68 years of experience.



    In early 2020, Mr. Malmqvist was given carte blanche to develop his own signature microphone and after spending well over two years working on the project, he is ready to present his new microphone to the world. 

    The Pearl ELM-T Bernt Malmqvist Signature Edition is a true tube microphone in a striking Rolex Green Nextel finish with seamlessly variable polar patterns. The power is supplied by a custom-made PSU from Andreas Grosser in Berlin. The microphone is built around the unique Pearl ELM capsule with a 7:1 height-to-width ratio, possibly the largest condenser capsules on the market. In combination with a true tube amplifier, the microphone provides a warm and detailed sound with a very smooth off-axis response. The large diaphragm helps to keep the self-noise at 15 dBA, very low for a true tube design, and the frequency response extends well beyond 20 kHz. 

    The ELM-T is built entirely by hand in southern Sweden and delivered in an aluminum case with a PSU, cable, shockmount and an individual frequency chart.  

    The formal presentation will be held at an event at Power Station Studios in New York City on Oct 18 and at the AES show, Oct 19-20. First deliveries are expected in December 2022.
