What We Think - Brauner Valvet X Pure Cardioid Tube Microphone 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."

I've got a few great mics in my closet, including a Neumann U87, a Wunder CM7GT and a Bock Audio 195. I wanted to get another valve (tube) mic that was realtively affordable, but offered something different in sound than the mics I already had. I auditioned the Brauner Valvet, and was highly impressed by both its open sound, clarity, and great sense of presence. It isn't bright, but also not as low-mid rich as the Wunder--one of my all time favorite mics on vocals. It's just right for many of the singers I've used it with in my small studio. I've also produced some terrific acoustic guitar tracks using it. It's extremely well built and very classy in its looks. Mic selection is highly subjective, but I think the Brauner is worth careful consideration; especially at its price point.
Amazing mic, amazing vendor. If you're looking for a tube sound that is tight and defined - this rivals my U87 and Pearlman TM-1. It is now at the top of the list of my "go -to " mics. Go for it ! Valvet X and Front End are the bomb !
