Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone

The Brauner is a hand built large-diaphragm tube condenser combining the VM1 and VMX circuitry in one mic allowing either the ‘natural’ or ‘charming’ Brauner tonalities.

A switch on the external power supply selects which circuitry is active, either VM1 or VMX. The mic contains two complete circuits rather than filters to alter the tone.

As with many Brauner tube condensers, polar pattern selection is continuously variable from Omni to Figure-8. The power supply also features the 3-position groundlift common to Brauner tube power supplies.

Studio Auditions

The differences are not extremely radical from omni to figure-8, save for the actual pattern itself…Basically, each pattern was just another shade of what you’ll swear is the best microphone you’ve ever heard.

The VMX ships with: Aluminum case, BMS1 suspension mount, power supply, VOVOX cable, and a pop filter.
