Description

WAIT ... A CLONE?
We did not set out to make a “clone”, “homage”, or “tribute” to one of the most hallowed stereo microphones of all time. Rather, we used the basic circuit topology and improved upon it in as many ways as we could. This includes:
• A modernized power supply with extra filtering stages and integrated polar pattern switching
• Vastly reducing the crosstalk between the two circuits that was inherent to the original design, leading to superior stereo imaging
• Improved noise filtering along the capsule and power paths
• Extended low frequency response with a better transformer design and component value changes
• Modernized components, including US-made audiophile-grade low-noise resistors, high-end capacitors, dual Cinemag™ transformers, sealed microphone switches, and deep-cycle cryogenic treatment of the majority of the componentry
• Switchable low-pass filtering per channel – for “12”- or “251”-style high end.
• And of course, our tried-and-tested “tank turret” V44S capsule-rotating metalwork that is the most durable rotating stereo microphone design conceived, using punched stainless steel and ball bearings for stage-worthy recallable settings

Quality
The V24 is designed and built in the USA, and undergoes final assembly in sunny Southern California. The V44S chassis platform is modified, stripped, polished, re-engraved, and finished. The PSU chassis is bent locally. We are assembling every unit by hand – every last solder joint and screw. We perform 100% quality control – every single piece of your microphone kit undergoes a series of stringent audio and visual tests in Southern California before being hand-packed.

Every component of the V24 was designed to be robust and reliable. Wherever possible, components were over-specced. The deep-cycle cryogenic treatment improves the lifespan and performance of critical electronic components. Each microphone component is built from stainless steel. Every Vanguard microphone is backed by our FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY.

Design
Every great microphone starts with a great capsule. After much consideration, we chose a matched set of BeesNeez CK12 capsules for the V24. These Australian-made beauties are manufactured using modern automated CNC machining and Ben is extremely knowledgeable of the original CK12s. One of the most complex (and revered) capsule designs ever conceived, the CK12 is the beating heart of some of the most hallowed vintage microphones.

These capsules are set within our “tour-proof” V44S platform, with open-weave headbaskets for low internal reflections and a natural sound. The top headbasket rotates up to 120 degrees, with detents every 15 degrees for repeatability of settings.

The dual Cinemag™ transformers emulate the properties of the famed “T14” transformer found in vintage Austrian microphones, but use a larger core to obtain better low end response along with higher-quality alloys and precision windings.

For the V24, we spared no expense finding premium-grade, over-spec components sourced from manufacturers around the world. We cryogenically treat the majority of components, including a hand-selected 6072A tubes. We  chose to use US-made, low-noise, precision-spec, audiophile-grade resistors.

Aesthetically, the precision-machined stainless steel body is polished to a #4 grained finish. Your V24’s serial number is laser-engraved on the lower rear of the microphone.
Performance

We designed the V24 with the character of the definitive vintage stereo microphone in mind, while also utilizing modern technology & design to meet the demands of today’s recording professionals.

Both historically-accurate CK12 capsules are independently switchable via the power supply between 9 different patterns, allowing X/Y, Mid-Side, and Blumlein stereo mic’ing within one microphone, as well as less conventional stereo techniques.

On the rear of the microphone are two switches. The original Austrian microphone was neither a pair of “12s” nor a pair of “251”s, but was an amalgamation of the two. It utilized the “251 rolloff”, a capacitor which gives the famous Telefunken model its signature top end. We made this capacitor switchable per capsule, allowing for a “12” or “251” style response for each channel.

One of the biggest frustrations we’ve heard from users of stereo microphones is the flaws of current and past headbasket rotation assemblies. Too often, the current designs are fragile and prone to noisy operation, breakage, and signal loss. We designed a heavy-duty, punched-steel rotation mechanism which detents every 15 degrees for reliable, durable operation.

The power supply was designed from the ground up to provide clean, consistent power with no drift. The power supply output gives the engineer an additional phase-reversed top capsule output, which is perfect for less-than-ideal recording conditions such as concert taping. This allows mid-side recording with no additional mixer patching.

Features
Design & Performance
• "12" vs "251" mode - each capsule has a switch for the famous "251" high-end rolloff to emulate those hallowed microphones' respective top end response!
• 9 independently switchable polar patterns - XY, Mid-Side, Blumlein, or any number of creative stereo options
• "Tank Turret" Top Capsule - Our "tour-proof" rotation mechanism allows for up to 120º of rotation with 15º detents
• 120º rotatable top capsule with 15º detents - our "tour-proof" V44S technology, the best rotation mechanism to ever grace a stereo microphone
• 3-output PSU for easy Mid-Side processing - a phase-reversed top capsule output allows for seamless mid-side processing with 3 cables
• Open-weave headbasket for low internal reflections and “open-air” voicing

Royer Labs R-121 Live Matched Pair - Ribbon Microphone
The R-121 Live is a ruggedized version of the popular R-121 ribbon microphone. The studio R-121 is tough and has been used on the road for years, but the increased durability of the R-121 Live gives FOH engineers greater confidence in the ribbon standing up to the rigors of the road.

The R-121 Live’s output level is comparable to a dynamic mic, and it delivers the warm, realistic tone that only a ribbon mic can. Along with its smooth, natural response, the R-121 Live virtually eliminates the shrill high-end often associated with live guitars and brass. Push up the faders and there’s the instrument in all its fullness and natural glory, minus the peaky highs that FOH and Monitor engineers spend so much of their careers fighting.

Roswell Audio Mini K47 captures the tone of a vintage microphone, with modern performance specifications.

"K47" refers to the capsule design. The capsule in this microphone is modeled after the one in the most famous microphone of all time. It provides a full, balanced tone without any harshness or hype in the upper frequencies. It will record less sibilance and fewer mouth sounds on your next vocal track. It will add weight and body to high strings and electric guitars. It will reduce the jangle in strummed acoustic tracks.

For this microphone, we chose a very clean and transparent circuit design. It lets the sound of the capsule pass through without alteration. Self-noise and distortion performance are on par with microphones costing significantly more. The circuit incorporates the best tricks we’ve learned from modifying and upgrading other companies’ products.

Roswell Pro Audio Mini K87 is a high-resolution condenser microphone with a neutral voicing. It aspires to transparency rather than color. Yet it retains enough character to capture and communicate the emotion of the source.

The mic's sound comes from a combination of a specially tuned K67/K87-style capsule and a circuit that we've designed to enhance and complement it. The final voicing of the microphone is a manual process that enables us to create a very consistent sound.

The Mini K87 excels on vocals (sung and spoken, including voiceover and podcasting), guitars, acoustic strings, and drum overheads.

Royer Labs R-122 MKII - Active Ribbon Microphone
In 2002 we introduced the R-122, the world’s first phantom powered, active ribbon™ microphone. It was a revolutionary development in ribbon mics, combining impedance matching circuitry with condenser-like output levels that allowed the R-122 to be used on even the quietest sound sources. It also allowed the mic to be paired to virtually any preamplifier.

The R-122 MKll takes the R-122 to a whole new level, delivering unprecedented flexibility for ribbons via the addition of a switchable -15 dB pad and a switchable bass-cut filter. The switches are completely out of the circuit when disengaged so when both are off, the microphone is for all purposes an original R-122. The switches are located on the back of the microphone and recessed to prevent accidental activation.

Vanguard V34C LOLLI is a removable multi-pattern large-diaphragm capsule head. Vanguard started with the custom-voiced 34mm 3-micron capsule. Then suspended it an aircraft-grade aluminum chassis which is carefully vented and radiused to minimize standing wave resonances. The LOLLI will fit on any microphone with M21x0.5 threading.

Lovingly crafted by experts, it is made to fit a variety of small-diaphragm “pencil” microphones from several manufacturers (Telefunken, Peluso, MXL ...). With the V34C, you can convert your instrument mic into a large-diaphragm, multi-pattern recording tool in seconds.

Roswell Pro Audio Colares • Boutique Vocal Condenser Microphone
The Colares is a large-body condenser microphone with a larger than life sound. It is our flagship vocal microphone, and excels at injecting color, vibe, excitement, and life to a track.

This is not a neutral or transparent microphone. It is unapologetically rich in both tone and harmonics.

The Colares has two unique features: a pad/voicing switch and a 3-way filter switch. Learn more about these in the Description tab below, on this page.
