Landis Pearce Details from Unify Sound Lab
Fort Mill, SC (November 1, 2022)—If you make time at Unify Sound Lab, owner Landis Pearce is likely to reach for a Telefunken microphone or two.
“I own and have used a plethora of Telefunken gear,” says Pearce, who opened the studio in 2011. Unify Sound Lab is currently being refurbished and expanded by designer David Rochester and his Technical Audio Services nationally acclaimed for a grand reopening in 2023. .
“I’ve recorded a lot with Telefunken’s C12, ELA M 251E and Dynamic M mics,” Pearce continues. The TF47 was my first dive into the Alchemy series mics, which I recently followed up with the new TF11 FET large-diaphragm mic.

Unify Sound Lab serves clients who work in a wide variety of genres. “The price of the TF47 was really great and exactly what I was looking for in another tube microphone, with that smooth top middle bump,” says Pearce. “I work in a variety of genres, from metal to modern pop and rap, to jazz. I needed a high-performance microphone that could deliver great sound to all my engineers as well as myself. The TF47 was the answer because it handles so many sources so well. My favorite instruments with the 47 include electric and acoustic guitar, as an omni drum room mic, for vocals and rapping, strings, and as a drum overhead mic.
He continues, “My new TF11 FET mic is such an interesting and versatile microphone,” continues Pearce. “I’ve used it everywhere and love it. My favorite places to use it are outside the bass drum, under the bottom of the snare drum, in mono overhead, on guitar amps, for acoustic guitar, on harsh harsh vocals, for tambourine and to capture walls and other reflective surfaces.”
