Brauner VM1 Multipattern Tube Microphone

The Brauner VM1 Multipattern Tube Microphone is the the fulfillment of Dirk Brauner's dream to build 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 Brauner VM1 was awarded the SSAIR Award in 1998, marking the beginning of a tradition of excellence in design philosophy, engineering and precision.

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.

The power supply of the VM1 allows infinite adjustments of the directional characteristics as well as a 10 dB reduction through a switchable attenuator. The VM1 is also offered in a lite version with a simplified power supply with cardioid and omnidirectional patterns.

    Thank you for you amazing service, I just finished our first recording session with the VM1, we were so impressed and happy with these microphones, worked very well close to the piano, the harp or the violin. Thank you to Front End Audio who did a very professional job ordering and delivering them on time!
