Weissklang V17 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
Entirely made in Germany, the V17 stands in the ranks of much higher-priced studio classics. Doing away with gimmicks, this mic offers only uncompromising sound and build quality.
Featuring Weissklang's patented "TransHarmonic" technology, the V17 offers the sonic benefit of tubes, with the reliability, dynamic range, and low-noise of transistors (only 8dB self noise). TransHarmonic technology produces the musical harmonics found in tubes making it a good choice when a little colour is desired.
The V17 features the WMK-17 gold-sputtered, edge terminated capsule. The frequency response is flat with a slight, balanced lift at 2kHz; perfect for vocals. The internal circuitry and the capsule are matched, ensuring optimal performance, guaranteed.
The body of the V17 is made of copper and aluminum, with very low resonance. The surface is powder coated, and built to last a lifetime.
The V17 comes with a high quality metal shockmount and fine wooden box. Also made in Germany.
