Brauner Microphones VM1 (Pure Cardioid)

Brauner Microphones VM1 (Pure Cardioid)

The VM1 was the fulfillment of Dirk Brauner's dream to build his vision of the perfect sounding tube microphone. A microphone that captures the spirit of the classic vintage tube microphones and at the same time, meets the high technical standards of today's modern microphones. The VM1 was awarded the SSAIR Award in 1998, marking the beginning of a tradition of excellence in design philosophy, engineering and precision.
Continuing the "pure cardioid" series we distill the essence of our successful tube microphones VM1 and VMX into two new models with a cardioid pattern only. Keeping the well-known high-class look & feel, these two new microphones show their exceptional qualities in solo recordings and achieve an even better self noise due to their fixed pattern. Their attractive price appeals to home studio enthusiasts all the way to the most demanding audio purists who do not require the variable patterns offered in the classic VM1 or VMX, and simultaneously make no compromises in sound quality.

In our humble opinion, no other microphone has played a greater role in the renaissance of the tube microphone. As the archetype of all Brauner microphones it continues to serve as the inspiration for all Brauner products. The VM1 has a completely natural, modern sound with the highest resolution of sonic detail. Its transparent open character is predestined for vocal and instrumental recordings and is the first choice microphone of top artists and sound engineers all over the world.
