Respected transducer manufacturer Brauner Microphones will unveil the Phantom V - their first variable-pattern, non-tube (FET), large diaphragm microphone - at the 117th AES Convention in San Francisco. Building on the success of the Phantom C fixed cardioid FET model, Brauner's latest addition, to the well-received Phantom Series, offers switchable omni-directional, cardioid, and figure-eight polar patterns, as well as a -15dB pad.

Since the introduction of the 2003 TEC Award-nominated Phantom C, discriminating recordists have enjoyed the Phantom Series' distinct aural character, but lacked the ability to use its qualities in acoustic settings where non-cardioid pick-up patterns were necessary. With the debut of the Phantom V, engineers can utilize all qualities of its 48V-powered predecessor alongside augmented polar pattern choices and a -15dB pad for higher SPL environments.

The Dirk Brauner-designed, German-crafted, Phantom V features a satin nickel finish and the renowned, hefty build quality for which Brauner microphones are deservedly known. The Phantom V - whose capsule is based on the legendary 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.

MSRP: $2,500
