Vanguard

 

The Vanguard V13 is a new multi-pattern, large-diaphragm valve condenser microphone from Vanguard Audio Labs. At KMR Audio we do get approached regularly with new microphones for evaluation and the Vanguard V13 came our way really quite recently. When we tested it we were very impressed with the character, sound and build quality of this mic - and all at a very competitive price.

The Vanguard V13 is a new multi-pattern, large-diaphragm valve condenser microphone from Vanguard Audio Labs. At KMR Audio we do get approached regularly with new microphones for evaluation and the Vanguard V13 came our way really quite recently. When we tested it we were very impressed with the character, sound and build quality of this mic - and all at a very competitive price.

 

Vanguard Audio Labs have spent over two years developing the sonic choices and we feel the mic can be best described as to characterise the vintage warmth of classic familiar mics, but also bringing the detail out required for modern recordings, but without sounding harsh or overly bright. There are 9 available polar patterns and the V13 comes with a unique shockmount design which features an open front which allows the mic to get much closer to the source.

 

Suitable for both Female and Male vocals we also found the V13 to work extremely well on acoustic guitar (and no doubt many other sources yet to try). Designed in the USA and with final assembly also being carried out in California, Vanguard Audio Labs have used reliable components and over-specified parts where possible, providing them with the confidence to offer a 5-Year Warranty on the microphone.

 

The Vanguard V13 can also accomodate either 12AX7, 12AT7 and 12AY7 valves for those who wish to experiment with various tube configurations.

 

Contact us for more information or if you wish to demo the V13 in your own space.
