Compact and well built, the Pearl 22 series are outstanding condenser microphones constructed around the 2800 rectangular capsule and a low-noise amplifier. There are currently three different versions: the cardioid CC 22, the bi-directional CB 22 and the omni-directional CO 22.


The detailed transient reproduction and smooth off-axis response makes the 22 series an excellent choice for orchestral and choral recordings, but it is just as perfect for other transient-rich sources, such as acoustic guitar or piano.


The bi-directional, natural sounding CB 22 is ideal as part of a stereo pair. Combine two CB 22’s for Blumlein stereo, or pair the CB 22 with a cardioid microphone for an M-S stereo setup.


The CB 22 is finished in piano black ED lacquer with a red logo, ring and engraved model number.
