Recording - October 2017 - 57

is how said open clarity extends down low
for a full beautiful low-end capture.
This mic is not colored sonically in any
way, yet it's not clinical either-not so
much a "stark reality" mic as just a "reality"
mic. The depth that this mic offers surrounds the source in a very full gelled
way. It's like the source and the space
are equals in the soundstage... hard to
describe without hearing it for yourself.
Equally impressive is how true and
sonically natural the off-axis rejection
is. There's a touch of top-end rounding
off-axis, but sonically the rest of the sound
on the sides remains true to its on-axis
capture, only about 8-10 dB quieter. As
to proximity effect, it has one, but it's very
subtle. You need to be "eating the mic"
to really make it pronounced.

In use

Again, based on its specs, I was
expecting to not like the EHR-M on
high-frequency content such as cymbals,
tambourine and brass. I could not have
been more wrong; the EHR-M captures
all of the above in stunning detail, and

as a drum overhead it balances nicely
with the toms and kick. I only had one
as a mono overhead, and yet in a mix
it was so full of depth I never lamented
any lack of stereo width.
On vocals, I work with some mad
P-poppers, and I did find a good pop
filter necessary for "up on the mic" vocal
work. The clarity and realism the EHR-M
brings to the voice is quite nice, although
it is very unforgiving with spittle clicks,
mouth noises, and breaths.
I enjoyed its natural sound on cajon in
a remote tracking session I did. I was
impressed enough to come back to the
studio and try it on the outside of the kick
drum. I was once again impressed by how
full the low capture was, and how much
the recorded kick sounded like the kick in
the room. This is perfect for jazz and mixes
where the kick needs to sit in a space.
If I had to pick a favored use,
though, it would be acoustic guitars.
On a nice Taylor or Martin, it's very
much a no-need-for-EQ mic. The realism
and fullness on string instruments overall is humbling.

Having said all that, all of this mic's
up-sides can be downsides. The EHR-M,
while not clinical, is one of those mics
that gives back what it gets. A badly
maintained instrument, so-so singer, or
a bad, noisy room are not where I would
use it, nor would I choose it for vibe and
coloration to massage a sound.

Getting to the points

The verdict? This is a mic you need
to hear for yourself, you really do.
Sadly, I know that its clarity may
scare off potential users, especially
the vibe seekers, and that would be
a mistake. Really!
Demo one now, especially if you do
anything with acoustic instruments of
any kind. Six months ago I had never
even heard of Ehrlund mics... and now
I am an Ehr-vangelist!
