To Dirk Brauner, his VM1 was the first real fulfilling of the dream of the perfect sounding tube microphone. A microphone to keep the spirit of the glorious old tube microphones alive, whilst complying with the high technical standards of modern high-tech microphones in the same way. Tradition and progress join up in this top of the line Brauner product, which won the SSAIRA award in 1998 for the best product in its category. (Professional Studio Recording Microphones)
It is available in two different versions called VM1 and VM1lite.The VM1 offers infinitly variable pattern control and a switchable 10dB Pad, while the VM1lite offers cardioid and omni pattern, which are most commonly used. With the introduction of the VM1lite a real high end tube microphone becomes available to users with a smaller budget.
Without any doubt, Brauners fame today was founded with this microphone.
