Model EHR-T from EHRLUND Sweden
VSTUDIOS has had the opportunity to test EHRLUND's large diaphragm microphones models EHR-T and EHR-M. AND WE ARE AMAZED!
These microphones operate on triangular membranes and the sound is just fantastic. We recorded mainly acoustic guitars, percussion and some electric guitars as well. And the results were absolutely brilliant. The sound is clear, has a defined low end, soft highs and a mellow and clear middle range.
We have tested both models and the sound is nearly identical. The model T offers you "omni" capabilities by having a second membrane with a separate output on the mic, so you can use the rear membrane to record any sound hitting the back of the microphone. The EHRLUND patented dual triangular membrane design offers you everything you need later in the mix.

The sound of both EHRLUND microphones is very transparent and uncoloured. EHRLUND microphones are an excellent choice if you are looking for that clear, untouched and open sounding experience. The one quality of these outstanding microphones is their neutral and open sound, that is unmatched in their price range.
We combined the EHRLUND EHR-T with an SM57 and a NEUMANN KM184 and achieved a beautiful and well balanced guitar sound, although we didn't use too much of the other signals besides the EHRLUND tracks. It also worked perfectly in front of a Marshal amp, the sound here was rather bright, but very clear and edgy, making it easy to place it in the mix.
All percussion tracks didn't take any post editing, but instead were easily placed in the arrangement and balanced quickly. We were surprised how well these mics performed. A triangular membrane is not something you'd expect in a mic, or see very often. We became a fan of EHRLUND microphones and we will definitely use them on future projects, especially when it comes to keeping the pure and true sound quality of instruments or vocals, like known from classical or jazz recordings.
You should definitely try them if you are looking for the true and pure sound of your recordings, no matter what you record.
