*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 V44S is a stereo large-diaphragm multi-pattern FET condenser microphone. Lovingly crafted by experts over 2 years, it is designed to be a versatile, reliable, professional tool in the vein of highly-sought-after vintage stereo condensers of yesteryear.
With a pair of coincident twin custom-voiced multi-pattern capsules, you can utilitize X/Y, Mid-Side, Blumlein, and other less conventional stereo microphone techniques in a single microphone. With an all-new detented heavy-duty rotation mechanism, premium cryogenically-treated FET circuitry, and a VLSM shockmount, the V44S is the first and last stereo microphone you’ll ever need to reach for.
