10,000th Mic + 10 Years of Ear Trumpet Labs
In 2011 Philip Graham quit his coding job and began building microphones in his basement and garage for his daughter Malachi Graham, now business manager. What started as a passion project has evolved into one of the premiere microphone companies for both live and recorded sound. A small but mighty team of six handbuild each microphone in their stellar fleet of condensers, known and loved in the industry for their unique retro-styling and impeccable sound quality.
The giving campaign is currently live, with Ear Trumpet Labs donating 100% of all profits earned to MESO (Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon) through August 31. MESO aims to elevate and empower historically excluded and under-resourced entrepreneurs with tailored business assistance and flexible capital to build family wealth through small business ownership.
“I am so proud of what we have built and accomplished; however last year it became clear that this path was overwhelmingly easier for me than it would be for many people in our community with equally good ideas,” Philip Graham shares. “That is why partnering with MESO is especially important for us at this 10 year milestone. We want to look back 10 years from now and see more diverse companies thriving in the pro-audio industry and beyond.”
Founded in Portland, Oregon in 2011, Ear Trumpet Labs is a craft builder of unique microphones for adventurous musicians and recording artists. Combining technical expertise, the highest grade hand selected electrical components, and a sculptural aesthetic, the company is committed to a hand-built craft workshop approach to providing the best looking and sounding microphones.
