The ELM-T Bernt Malmqvist Signature Edition is an exquisite tube microphone designed by Pearl Microphones own microphone master Mr. Bernt Malmqvist.


Bernt spent well over two years developing his signature edition vacuum tube microphone.  The Pearl ELM-T Bernt Malmqvist Signature Edition is not only a work of art in Rolex Green – it is a true vacuum tube design meticulously handcrafted by one of the most experienced microphone makers in the world.


The ELM-T is built around Pearl’s spectacular ELM capsule and offers seamlessly variable polar patterns. An Andreas Grosser PSU completes the package and the result is a microphone with a warm and detailed sound, low self-noise and very smooth off-axis response.
