Video: Ear Trumpet Labs

We met Philip Graham in 2013, soon after word of his phenomenal, beautiful Ear Trumpet Labs microphones spread through the Portland engineering community like wildfire. We’ve been fans ever since. Philip is one of Banana Stand’s favorite makers. We think what he does is really special, and couldn’t have asked for a better subject for the first video in this series.


To learn more about or purchase one of Philip’s microphones, visit We suggest the Edwina. It’s terrific for live sound during acoustic performances, or as a drum overhead in all environments. We think you’ll love it. We have!
