The JZ Microphones V11 Microphone provides the creamy dark sound of a vintage ribbon microphone with the detail of a large diaphargm condenser, making it a unique tonal mic for adding a richness to any brighter or harsh sound sources.

The number 11 stands for 2011 as reference year when a new classic microphone has been created. Vintage 11 is dedicated for everyone who loves recording in the highest quality possible and wants something better than all known studio standards. The Vintage 11 even has a budget-friendly price. With the open detailed presences of JZ's Golden Drop Capsule Technology, and the dark ribbon like character of the mic, the V11 is great on bright sound sources, like acoustic guitars, drum overheads, stringed instruments, and bright or harsh vocals.

JZ Microphones has teamed up with Rycote to offer a unique shock mount for their Vintage Series Microphones. The JZ Microphones Vintage Series Shockmount can be purchased HERE, to provide superior isolation and stability for your Vintage Series mic!

What We Think


The JZ Microphones V11 Microphone is such a cool mic. It has all the detail and sensitivity that you want in a condenser, yet has such a creamy and thick sound that is very much like a ribbon mic. The darker character can tame bright and harsher sound sources and aggressive vocalists, but sounds stellar on guitar cab and snare drums. The V11 is a very unique mic that really stands on it's own.
