The V57 is an inexpensive large-diaphragm condenser microphone, manufactured in China. It has a fixed cardioid pattern and onboard switches controlling a -10dB pad and a high-pass filter.

The mic is sold as a bundle with a pair of Cascade’s M39 small-diaphragm “pencil” condensers. It ships with a suspension shockmount and a micro-fiber cleaning cloth in an aluminum flight case.

Three color combinations are available:

  • Silver V57 body with silver grille, $239
