The Phantom V Microphone, Brauner's first variable-pattern, non-tube (FET), large diaphragm microphone, has now started shipping.
Building on the success of the Phantom C fixed cardioid FET model, Brauner's latest addition to the Phantom Series offers switchable omni-directional, cardioid, and figure-eight polar patterns, as well as a -15dB pad.
The Dirk Brauner-designed, German-crafted, Phantom V features a satin nickel finish and hefty build quality. The Phantom V, whose capsule is based on the Brauner VM1 tube microphone, boasts a self-noise of 8dBa, a maximum SPL of 142dB at 0.3% THD, and a frequency range of 20Hz-22kHz.
The Phantom V package comes complete with the Brauner SMV shock-mount suspension system, custom aluminum case, cable, and user manual.
Brauner mics are sold direct in the U.S. by LasVegasProAudio.com, the direct sales division of TransAudio Group, for $1,990.00.
