Brauner Valvet Dual-Pattern Valve Tube Microphone

Brauner Valvet Dual-Pattern Valve Tube Microphone, produces recordings with wonderful spatial qualities and pleasing proximity and warmth.

Brauner Valvet Dual-Pattern Valve Tube Microphone Details

The Brauner Valvet is a dual-pattern tube microphone that is based on the already legendary Brauner VM1, which provides a unique, finely balanced character. First class components, excellent dynamics and exceptionally low self noise exemplify Brauner microphones. This of course, holds true for the Valvet. Brauner's objective with the Valvet was to create a tube microphone that would be ideally suited to be used as a spot microphone through small construction and the use of a newly developed microphone suspension.

The Brauner Valvet produces excellent recordings even under difficult acoustic conditions due to its directional characteristics, leaning slightly towards hyper-cardioid while maintaining a high level of back rejection. In omni though, it becomes the perfect choice for ambience recordings. In 1999, the Valvet received the SSAIR Award for best microphone in its category as the VM1 did the year before.

The Valvet, boasting the same naturalness and openness as the VM1, produces recordings with wonderful spatial qualities and pleasing proximity and warmth. The Valvet uses the most common directional characteristics - omni and cardioid - and has a phase reverse switch for the use with non-standard pre-amplifiers.

In order to celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Valvet will be available for a special offer price during a limited period of time, as will be the brandnew Valvet X. So make sure to reserve yours in time!

What We Think - Brauner Valvet Review

"Brauner Microphones are truly works of art. To hold one in your hand is to be beholden to beauty and quality. To listen to one is the same! Though not to ever be considered budget microphones in any way, Brauner Microphones are an incredible value when compared to other handmade German microphones. I've made some of my most stunning recordings when using Brauners and highly recommend them."
