The Maestro

The Maestro - Limited Edition

Made using all of Violet Design’s microphone expertise, The Maestro combines a dual-membrane VD27 capsule and a discrete Class-A preamplifier with transformerless output. The large-sized head ensures minimal internal resonances and reflexions, and as a result the capsule sounds more detailed and more “airy”.

Very low self-noise and distortions are results of improved electronics. With a medium-bright tone The Maestro is designed as an all-round studio microphone for the highest quality audio recording where sound quality and musical character is of the utmost importance. The Maestro is best suited for close miking for solo vocals and solo instruments.

A matched stereo pair can be special ordered.

The Maestro comes with a microphone holder included in a luxurious wooden box.
