Small membrane cardioids with a high or low level output stage
Pearl's small capsule cardioid TL microphones come in handy in a number of situations. The TL 66 is a low (normal) level transformerless version with a very low noise floor. It is suitable for situations like recording choirs, smaller ensembles, grand piano in a live or studio situation. The TL 66 really shines when it comes to faithfully reproducing percussion and is often used in a pair for drum overheads.
The high level model TL 6C is the given choice where microphones can't be placed close to the source for various reasons. Examples include discreet interrogation work or when recording conversations of many persons in a room (such as roll calls, public Q&A sessions and other kinds of meetings with several people involved). The very low noise of the TL 6C ensures that recording under hard conditions becomes useful.
The TL 66 and TL 6C are finished in piano black ED lacquer.
