Pearl OM 16


Your omni alternative in the small capsule game

If natural sound I what you're after in a small membrane microphone, take a closer look at the OM 16. Its wide frequency response and generous low end makes it an ideal tool for capturing most musical instruments and vocal performances. A gentle high-mid boost gives that little extra clarity that is often desired today.

The OM 16, with its capsule mounted in a rubber casing, has been built to last. It will deliver sweet sounds in spite of high temperatures and humidity.

The OM 16 is finished in piano black ED lacquer.
