The Brauner VM1S is Dirk Brauner's baby. He designed it to become your reference mic, the very best you've got. He did it because he wanted to prove it could be done: build it the "old world" way with new components.
The VM1 is unique in the industry in that inside, there are no simi-conductors in the signal path. There are no connectors between the capsule and the control grid of the tube, avoiding parasitic capacitance in the high impedance area. No switches or filters are used for the same reason, avoiding audible phase shift and transient distortion. The mic amplifier is a pure Class A, and a Brauner designed, hand wound, twin core transformer with specifically chosen core material assure the user of the highest possible performance. A heavy machined frame holds the VM1 workings solidly inside the heavy anodized case. Even the popscreen is a work of art, I call it the Superscreen- and it is unique. Designed to be acoustically transparent, it has a specific design that does not shift phase of the incoming acoustical signal, so it is completely neutral-unlike the popper stopper screens. The pattern control which is infinitely variable from figure eight to omni, is located on the power supply so you don't have to get up and disturb the artist or climb a ladder to change pattern. The Shock Mount is very heavy duty, with "fail safes" built in to prevent accidental dropping of the mic during set-up. There's a clever little spring loaded wrench built-in to adjust the shock mount angle so you never have to bruise your fingers or knuckles clamping down a mic.
This mic is built for the real studio, and I don't think you've seen this kind of personal attention to detail in microphone construction or design in a long, long time. But then, Dirk is a very unique guy. I think you'll be impressed.
The Brauner VM1 microphone "sound" defies description-it sounds like the best of the old mics in a way...great transients, wonderful silkiness in the mids and top, yet it sounds unlike anything you have ever heard before. Transparency is the only word I can think of to reflect what a Brauner is, although that word is so over used that it's lost it's meaning. If you are expecting the old U47 sound, this is not the mic. This is not a "old mic" copycat. If you are looking for something new, something very different than anything you have heard before, then this is something you'll want to know about. Already the audio elite from Bruce Sweiden to Steve Kempster (Hollywood scoring engineer for Twister, Armegeddon, Enemy of the State, Tarzan) find the VM1 to deliver what nothing else can do.
If you would like to schedule an "on premises" demo, send me an email or give me a call and I will get you set up. All Brauner mics are built to order, so sometimes there's a little wait for one. While many factors influence mic selection, I am confident you will find the VM1 to be one of the best you have ever heard.
