This microphone, handmade in Portland OR, has the clarity of a studio quality condenser mic, but is designed for the live environment. It is a pleasure to sing through, not only for the sound quality, but for the larger sweet spot area that allows vocal enunciation to be heard clearly without needing to be pinned so close to the microphone. These microphones are a real treat and have the feel of an heirloom right from the start!
End-address large-diaphragm condenser with flexible pivoting body, very feedback resistant, excellent for live vocals and acoustic instruments.
Chantelle was created to be the best available live vocal mic. She brings the clarity, warmth, and character of a large diaphragm capsule to a beautiful low-profile body ideal for close-micing. She has a smooth high end with no harshness and a very gentle upper-midrange emphasis. She also incorporates a full foam pop filter for great plosive protection. With exceptional feedback rejection, she can be used on even the loudest of stages.
Her warm, present tone is also great on acoustic instruments.
