The cardioid version of the 22-family has been the best-selling Pearl model for years. It offers detailed and transparent reproduction in a sleek design.


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.


With its crisp, natural sound and extended highs, the cardioid CC 22 is arguably the most applicable model of the three. It will act as a strong foundation for any microphone collection.The CC 22 is finished in piano black ED lacquer with a golden logo, ring and engraved model number.
