Product Description

The Josephson e22S side-address cardioid was designed to meet the needs of
noted recording engineer Steve Albini. The physical profile allows unobtrusive
placement, even with tight percussion layouts. Unique among studio condenser
microphones, the e22S capsule geometry is optimized for spot miking
performance. The circuit uses a cascode discrete FET front end, combined with a
custom Lundahl output transformer. The electronics were designed to interface
easily with either transformer or direct coupled mic preamps. The e22S has low
self-noise, so it delivers low level detail, and handles high sound pressure levels
for minimal distortion on extremely loud passages. The microphone housing is
very rugged, with a precision machined, satin black chrome finish.
“The specific need addressed by the e22S was drum kit recording, and the mics are
used in that capacity nearly every day, but once they were in our hands, they
quickly became a favorite mic for many instruments, including acoustic guitar,
mandolin, banjo, guitar amplifiers, organ and horns. The e22S is easily the most
versatile microphone in our cabinet.

“On loud sounds like drums and guitar cabinets, the 609 head amplifier delivers a
crisp, clear signal that is free of distortion, at a level that doesn't require an
external pad.”
—Steve Albini
