*COSMETIC B-STOCK – FULL WARRANTY AND FULL FUNCTION GUARANTEED.* We are very picky with our cosmetic inspections, so anything with minor defects in painting, plating, tolerance, etc. gets rejected. Occasionally we will build out a microphone specifically from this “cosmetic reject” stock and offer it at a discount.
The Vanguard V13 gen2 is a large-diaphragm multi-pattern tube condenser microphone. Crafted by experts over the course of 3 years, our design goal was to combine vintage warmth with smooth modern detail. After extensive testing and listening by world-class engineers, we can say with pride that the performance of this mic rivals or exceeds iconic vintage & modern microphones at a fraction of the cost.
The gen2 features US-made audiophile-grade low-noise resistors, Neutrik® Group Connectors, and an upgraded power supply.
