For Dirk Brauner, the VM1 was the first real fulfillment of the dream of a perfect sounding tube microphone. A microphone which captures the spirit of the famous old tube microphones and meets, at the same time, the high technical standards of modern high-tech microphones. Tradition and progress define this top quality Brauner product that was awarded the SSAIR Award in 1998. No other microphone has played a greater role in the renaissance of the tube microphone.
It is effectively the archetype of all Brauner microphones and has always served as a guiding theme. The VM1 distinguishes itself especially through its natural and modern sound with the highest resolution of sonic detail. Likewise, its transparent open character is predestined for vocal and instrumental recordings and is highly appreciated by 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 10dB reduction through a switchable attenuator. The VM1 is also offered in a lite version with a simplified power supply with cardioid and omnidirectional patterns.
