Sorry, this item is not available.

Multi-pattern large condenser mic for pro audio recording.

The V44S Gen 2 stereo condenser microphone provides dedicated musicians with an innovative, flexible tool for capturing highly detailed stereo recordings. Lovingly crafted over two years, this precision-built microphone features a pair of coincident, multi-pattern condenser capsules that can be configured for X/Y, Mid-Side, Blumlein and other advanced stereo techniques with the turn of a dial.

Unmatched Versatility and Control

With a heavy-duty rotation mechanism that detents at 15-degree intervals, you have unparalleled control over the capsules' positioning for crafting a stereo image that suits your needs. The included splitter box provides additional options like a phase-reversed output from the top capsule for mid-side recording, giving you enhanced flexibility in less-than-ideal recording conditions. With the V44S Gen 2, you have all the tools you need to capture immersive stereo recordings in one premium, handcrafted microphone.

Pristine, Musical Sound

The V44S Gen 2's capsules are custom-voiced to provide a open, natural sound with rich lows, clear highs and a smooth frequency response. The 3μm diaphragms are extraordinarily sensitive, faithfully translating every nuance of the performance into a lifelike stereo image. Premium, cryogenically treated components in the signal path keep noise to a minimum, allowing the full depth and dimension of the sound to come through with clarity and realism.

Roadworthy Design

Despite its premium components and delicate, hand-tuned capsules, the V44S Gen 2 is built to handle the demands of life on the road. The stainless steel microphone body and redesigned capsule suspension provide sturdy protection, while the heavy-duty rotation mechanism ensures reliable performance from session to session. With its rugged yet refined design and construction, this stereo condenser microphone is the perfect tool for capturing immersive recordings wherever your music takes you.

A Piece of Handcrafted Art

The V44S Gen 2 is precision machined from brass and stainless steel, then finished in a lustrous Pinot Noir gloss coat. Polished nickel accents and a precision-cast badge complement the deep, rich finish, creating an instrument that is as visually stunning as the recordings it helps you achieve. Each microphone is handcrafted in limited quantities to uncompromising standards, with final assembly and testing taking place in Southern California. The V44S Gen 2 delivers a combination of premium components, innovative design and artisanal craftsmanship found in few other microphones.
