High-class cardioid instrument condenser (small diaphragm)

8 in stock

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.

A switchable -12 dB pad ensures high SPL handling, and if cardioid is not the pickup pattern you need, the front is easily unscrewed in a few seconds and can be replaced by an omni or a supercardioid capsule (not included).

The VM-44 is offered in three different versions, the Classic (this one), the Link and the Gooseneck.

Package includes: 3221 shockmount, 3406 windscreen and an individual frequency graph.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
