Manufacturer's Description from Brauner

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.

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.

About Manufacturer

The philosophy behind Brauner microphones is to look at microphones in a different way... We do not think of microphones as being just some kind of technical gear. We think that building microphones and using them is an art rather than a science. What is at the heart of making music? It is mainly dealing with expressing the emotional content of an artist’s performance and the impression this performance is leaving in the listener. What is at the heart of recording music? Isn't it dealing with creating an image that will contain as much of this impression as possible? We think that only artists can create such a picture and these are the people we build our microphones for.
