The new VSM-1 studio condenser mic features a large 1.1 inch, gold-sputtered, 3 micron thick diaphragm. Frequency response is 10Hz to 20kHz while the polar pattern is fixed at cardioid only. The microphone uses a single 12AX7 tube in a "servo tube" head amplifier design and a solid-state differential output amplifier. This side-address mic has a sensitivity of -53dB, a signal-to-noise ratio of 79dB and a specified dynamic range of 118dB. For comparison shopping, the VSM-1 will handle 149dB SPL with the pad switched in for less than 0.5% THD. Noise level is measured at 15dB equivalent SPL, A weighted with an output impedance of 200 ohms.

Other very good features are: individually hand adjusted capsules, all brass and stainless steel capsule componentry, hi-pass filter switch for -3dB at 80Hz, selectable non-capacitive attenuator pad for either -8dB or -16dB, and analog power supply with 30ft cable. MSRP is $1,299 and the mic comes with a shock mount holder and is finished in matte gray and black with a nickel-plated screen.
