New Pearl Microphones Priority Condenser Microphone released
 
ALL NEW CONDENSER MICROPHONE FROM PEARL MICROPHONES!

Pearl Microphones har släppt Pearl PRIORITY.
(Pearl Microphones has released Pearl PRIORITY.)

Large rectangular membrane. Fixed cardioid. 5 kHz "lift". Stainless steel body.

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.

Recently Pro Sound News Magazine has selected the Pearl PRIORITY as "Best in Show" at the 2013 NAB Exhibition.

All Pearl microphones are hand-crafted in Åstorp, Skåne County, Sweden.

Wow! That looks nice! And if it is half as good as the CC22 then I want one or two or three...

Sounds really beautiful, perfect balance between strong midrange and modern clearness. Did you add some HF or it is that bright naturally?

Hi there

Other than the -3dB quick limiting in the chain the signal is pretty raw. cooge

Any clips of female voice? Sounds like It could be a great mic for Female Lead Vocals! Also how does it cut in a full mix?

Another bump and thread revival. Did you ever record any female vocals with the Priority?

any female vocals on this mic yet, surely there must be some female vocals that have been recorded with it - maybe the 5k peak doesn't play so well with female vocals that typically do better on C12/251 type mics where the mid scoop ameloirates harsh upper mids, in which case I may be better off with a Pearl cc22 which, although not scooped in mids, is at least is more neutral ?

optionalanalogue 6th October 2016 01:18 AM

anyone using a Pearl Priority for male or female vocals- how does it compare to Pearl cc22 ?
