Single-diaphragm cardioid valve Class A microphone, with extra low-end response, hand-built in Germany
The Brauner VMX Cardioid is a single-diaphragm cardioid Class A valve microphone with extra low-end response, hand-built in Germany.
With Pure Cardioid design, the Brauner VMX Cardioid can deliver perfect cardioid response, as it only contains a single dedicated diaphragm – not only that, but the VMX Cardioid will do it quieter than the equivalent twin capsule type, too. And for budget-conscious studios, the Pure Cardioid design ensures that the Brauner VMX Cardioid will cost you less than the multi-pattern VMX version.
Commitment to quality, excellence and performance is obvious throughout the Brauner line and no more so than in the Brauner VMX Cardioid. Ruggedly constructed and hand-assembled in Germany to the highest spec, with a Class A amp stage for the best linearity, the ultra-quiet VMX Cardioid delivers an enhanced low-end response and proximity effect – perfect for over-sibilant vocals or when you need to convey a sense of intimacy and closeness to the listener.
The original VM1 design was the dream of Dirk Brauner, when he set out to create the best valve microphone in the world. He did that. Then he moved smartly along. Now Brauner has had another dream come true – this time with the Brauner VMX Cardioid microphone.
