Milab VM-44 Classic small diaphragm condenser has transparent sound that excels on transient rich sources like acoustic guitar, piano or drums.

This hand-made small diaphragm condenser capsule is wonderfully transparent and handles fast transients and high frequency sources with aplomb. It has a beautifully straight frequency curve with a presence peak around 10 KHz, making VM-44 ideal for almost any sound source. It especially shines for for acoustic instruments.

VM-44 is just as home in a studio as on stage and, thanks to its small size, it’s easy to place exactly where you want it without being in the way. The natural sound and discreet appearance have made the VM-44 range very popular among TV studios around the world.
