Ear Trumpet Labs Nadine

Nadine is a medium-large diaphragm condenser mic specifically designed for use on upright basses. The low end is tuned to give a flat response at the mounting distance while providing very natural sound by picking up as much of the surface of the bass as is possible within the constraints of the close placement. There’s great rejection off the back of he mic, allowing use with stage monitors.

Physically, the mic is separated into two parts: The body, which securely straps to the tailpiece with velcro elastic; and the head, which mounts easily between the strings above the tailpiece using a rubber grommet. The 14” Mogami cable that connects the two parts makes it easy to position the mic on the bass. This mounting system makes Nadine both easy to move between instruments and secure enough to leave on one bass permanently.

After years of being asked for a mic specifically designed to meet the needs of acoustic upright players in both stage and studio settings, Ear Trumpet Labs have possibly found the best design yet for this demanding application.
