Welcome to Rotund Rascal Recording Studio!
The Pearlman TM 1
"My recent vocal session at Rotund Rascal Recording using the Pearlman TM 1 microphone was great! I got the exact sound I was looking for." Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John, Jeff Beck, etc.)
The Pearlman TM 1 can also be heard on MTV's "The Osbournes!"
The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone was designed by and is hand made by Dave Pearlman of ROTUND RASCAL RECORDING STUDIO. It is a high quality microphone made for professional studio use but priced for the home recordist. Many studios using digital recording, (Pro Tools, etc.), need a front end system to warm up their recordings. This mic is for you!
A large diaphragm, 6 micron, gold sputtered capsule sends the
incoming signal to a New Old Stock WWII Vintage Telefunken metal tube
(electrically identical, except for the heater voltage, to the very expensive Telefunken VF14 used in the famous Neumann U47) to the hand-wired circuit which
includes selected WIMA polypropylene coupling capacitors to a state of the art
output transformer custom designed
by either the wonderful folks at CINEMAG Transformers
in Los Angeles or by the Tamura Transformer Company.
If you’re looking for a tube microphone with characteristics similar to the venerable Neumann U47 but at a tenth of the cost, then you will love this mic!
Every set includes: The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone, custom built power supply, custom tube microphone cable with Neutrik and Mogami, a heavy duty shockmount and aluminum shipping case.
Please inquire for prices.
