We’re thrilled to tell you that Vanguard Audio Labs has just been featured in Forbes. Yes, that Forbes. The Forbes.
No, we didn’t make the Forbes 500 list – we don’t use enough business jargon for that (though maybe we should start leveraging some low-hanging fruit to synergize the impact of our zero-sum bandwidth?!)
David Hochman has just published a home studio equipment guide for Forbes, and first on the list of microphones are our V4gen2 Fet Condenser and V44Sgen2 Stereo Condenser.
Here’s what David had to say about our mics:
“Vanguard Audio Labs packs its second-generation V4 large-diaphragm ($599) and the stereo V44S dual-capsule large diaphragm condenser mics ($1099) to look almost like vintage timepieces. But these classic-styled mics are anything but throwbacks. the V4 and V44S offer powerful sensitivity, along with a warmth and texture, that outperformed much pricier setups. Both models are classified as J-FET transformer-less mics, which means they use lower-priced transistors to perform the same functions as transformers.A kit version includes a metal shock-mount and rubber O-rings to protect these beauties when you’re not belting out “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” I also appreciate that the mics are designed and finished here in Southern California, where the brand is based. Vibes and performance as solid as a vintage muscle car.”
Our gen2 mics are now shipping! You can find out more about the V4gen2 and V44S gen2 here on our site and check out one of our awesome dealers to get one yourself. Meanwhile we’re going to maximize some value-added solutions real quick to see if we can get some traction on some paradigm-shifting deliverables for our Q4 profit spreadsheet accounts (are we doing it right?!)
