Ear Trumpet Labs has a new limited-edition microphone with the release of its Dark Edwina, the company’s first single-color microphone.
Created in collaboration with Dobro player Josh Swift, the new variation on Ear Trumpet Lab’s mic has a black finish, hand-processed at Cold Spring Enterprises, a gunsmith in Bristol, TN, using a technique called Cerakote that puts an extremely thin, durable black ceramic finish on metal. This process is mainly used for firearms customization.
“When we built the first mic for Josh, we knew this was a really cool look. It was kind of shocking to us; we're so used to seeing the bright metal mics that when we saw Edwina in flat black, it was almost spooky,” said Philip Graham, Ear Trumpet’s founder. “It felt like holding a shadow of an Edwina. When we sent it to Josh, he was over the moon. It was exactly what he had been hoping for.”
Swift, who plays over 100 shows annually with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, will be using his Dark Edwina on stage.
The Dark Edwina is now available for a first run of 10 units, with a limit on 50 units priced at $625.00.
