VTB Vacuum Tube Bottle Microphone -
Want that classic, vintage German tube mic sound but don't have $5-10 grand to drop on a vintage Telefunken or a Neumann, check it out:
The physical design of this exciting new microphone is inspired by the classic German Bottle Microphones. The VTB uses innovative Peluso circuitry with an extremely low noise floor and classic tube sound. It has a more modern sound with strong and clean low end, smooth detailed mid-range, and lots of high-end air. The VTB is stunning on vocals and brings a beautiful high-end emphasis to other instruments. The VTB features an on mic 15dB pad and low frequency roll off switches.
The Peluso VTB is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the VTB enables the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight. The VTB also has an additional switch to disable the pattern control system. This allows the mic to run just a single diaphragm in the capsule, giving it a mode with extremely pure cardioid characteristics.
The VTB comes with a 7-conductor cable with standard 7-pin XLR connector.
Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.
The microphone comes as a complete system including: VTB Microphone in a Wood Box, Power Supply, 7 Conductor Cable, and Shock Mount all packed in a Flight Case.
We think it beats that flagship Blue Bottle microphone every time.
More quality control and higher quality components.
Grab it while it lasts at this price!
