“Lead vocals worked so well that I resisted pulling out mics that cost ten times more. That’s unusual at this price point for a picky bastard like me.”
-Larry Crane, TapeOp
“I have yet to find a source that it sounds bad on.”
-Paul Vnuk, Jr, RECORDING Magazine
“Graham’s [microphones] look like antiques, like art pieces, like they were made to order for the rich folk sound Portland is known for these days.”
-The Oregonian
“The depth and uniqueness of character of the ETL’s have allowed us to present, finally, the show we’ve heard in our heads this whole time.”
-Joey Ryan, Milk Carton Kids
“Incredibly warm… I’ve used them on everything from piano to drum overheads, and they sound as good as they look.”
-Kevin Robinson, TapeOp
“This is an accomplished sounding microphone with distinctive styling and construction and an attractive price.”
-Hugh Robjohns, Sound On Sound
