Actually have never heard them, it would be cool to find out more and also if the entire microphone is made in Sweden....

I'll also be getting in a couple of EHR-M demo units in a few days, if you are in the Austin, Texas area. The triangular mic capsule is based on their work using a triangular contact pickup for acoustic instruments, which is pretty natural sounding.

I started out beta test the Ehrlund microphones. Had two Her-M. Toke them to a friends studio and have not seen them since then (except when In worked in his studio)

I work a lot with Ehrlund EHR-M and EHR-T (two outputs). I have one at home now, we have about 6-7 in church (for drums), a friend has about 10 in his studio (bigjambo.com), mainly for drums as it is a drum studio, and another close friend I work much with in his studio has about 15 Ehrlund microphones (the guy I toke my two beta Ehr-M to). He is also reseller of Ehrlund Microphones (Produkter ). So I have some experience of recorded some CDs using Ehrlund microphones. Here is an example of a CD I recently produced using solely Ehrlund Microphones 100% (drums, Hammond, Vocals etc) together with TubeTech Compressors, EQ etc:

CD were I used sololy Ehrlund Microphones... Swedish

Mr Ehrlund himself (that builds the microphones) visited the studio after that and was very pleased with the sound and asked if it could be on his manufacturer site as demo for Ehrlund microphones.

The sound of Her-M is very transparent and works great for rooms etc as it does not lose low end at distance but sounds close everywhere.

I've heard Ehrlund mics for drum recordings as i was present in the studio while material was being mixed, and the sound was more clear than boiled water. Perfect for drums, especially for toms.

I have a pair of Ehrlund EHR-T microphones that I recently bought used. Unsure of the correct way to connect to their 5-pin XLR, I email Ehrlund to ask them. Based on the serial numbers, they replied that my mics were prototypes that "are not representative at all for Ehrlund mics". Then they offered to upgrade my microphones for free. I just got them back and they sound superb.

I cannot remember the last time I have seen a company with better customer service or one that better stands behinds its products. Remember, I bought these mics USED. Although I have not yet had the chance to use these microphones very much, I am sure I will use them often because I think so highly of the company. And besides, like I said, they sound wonderful.

These microphones and the Ehrlund company get my highest recommendation.

I just bought the E version from Ehrlund and this microphone is quite something on voice. Against a tlm 102, the tlm 102 was dryer and less real than the EHR-E. I'll maybe do a demo soon for vocals.

I've made a short video just so to hear the difference in tone between EHR-E and the SM57, because it is not the same snare drum performance.

Hi. I was given an EHR-M 2 years ago to demo in my studio. Haven't used my u87 since. Just can't believe the transparency and depth of the sound. Captures low mid and highs with great clarity. The Neumann can't keep up with it. Price wise, its hard to beat.... and it can definitely compete with the "holy grails" 251, 49, u47... Granted, they have their own unique colors, but this thing is transparent and therefore allows you to color afterwards if you so desire.

Lucky Buy

I got very lucky with a facebook group and picked up a pair of the EHR-M, £700 for the pair.

I have a Neumann TLM67, which I love for the warmth and tape driven sound; but I haven't reached for it for vocals in months. The Ehrlund just has this big, open and natural sound. Pair it up with my Warm Audio ToneBeast TB12 and you can colour the sound and drive it to hell, and the EHR-M will still sound fantastic.

I can't get over the clarity and dynamic when recording anything with these puppies, I got a seriously lucky buy and I'm more than grateful.

Yeah but in terms of musicality the 57 sounded fantastic (even though it was way coloured!) !

A time ago I lost one Ehr-M in a bag I forgot at a train station. Of course I was devastated, especially as I bought it 2 weeks earlier (as a stereo complement to my other Ehr-M). Never thought the insurance would pay me for my stupid misstate. But after some months, after I gave up hope, they paid me for it and it also was enough to buy a SSL VHD Preamp to the X-Rack to it.

The Preamps to the Ehrund microphones can be a tricky part as those mica has a such high output and many preamps therefore distort. The SSL preamps works great and there I can't imagine any better sounding combination regardless any price tag.

That CD you produced for Eva Marklund sounds great! Was the SSL preamps used? Was it mixed ITB? Very natural drum and vocal sounds.

Thank you

It was 100% made with Ehrlund microphones; all drums and percussion (a variety of totally 26 Ehrlund Mics if I remember right), organ (5 EHR-M on the Leslie and room), Rhodes (EHR-M on the speaker cabinet) vocals (EHR-T). The preamps and all processing was Tubetech. Everything was OTB except ProTools HD, reverb and delay and some of the keyboards. It was mastered OTB as well (Tubetech) except limiter. The credits for that part goes to my sound engineer and great friend Anders Köllerfors that worked hard to capture a smooth, rich and natural sound just the way I like it.

I'd want to see a tube version of such a mic. I'm not sure if it would make sense, but that's what I'd like to see.

Yeah doesn't make sense. Run through a tube pre-amp if you want that colour..

The Ehrlund brand is not only one of the newest and best sounding microphones ever made, it is turning heads and changing the minds of long established industry professionals in L.A., NYC, Nashville, and all over Europe. I invite you to ask me anything you want about their products and I can also recommend a dealer near you where you can get a demo in the U.S. here's my email: [email protected]

And... Here's the Ehrlund website with U.S. Dealers listed.

Please let me know who is interested in a demo, and where you are located, and i will assist you in getting connected with a sales team in the United States.

I would be fascinated by that as well, but honestly, after trying out the EHR-M, I found that even through a clean pre, it has a startling “tube like” dimensionality, 3D holographic sound, that really reminded me of tubes, but quieter and linear, detailed, full bodied sound. Very, VERY impressive!
