Tape Op Magazine Reviews the V7 Dynamic


We were ecstatic when we opened this month's issue of Tape Op magazine and saw their review of our V7 Supercardioid Dynamic mic.

Here are a few quotes, but you should definitely go read the whole thing...


"The V7...is a stage mic that doesn’t feel like a compromise. I’ve had this mic for almost a year, and it’s captured amazing vocal performances, with stellar sounding results. Plus, the V7 excels at all of the requirements for live use — even more so than the industry standards."

"...great rejection and a smooth off-axis frequency response, with fewer ups and downs in the spectrum vs. the Beta 58A."

"...the V7’s self-resonance is more than one octave lower than that of the three Shure mics — which means you have a much greater chance of being able to EQ (or multiband-compress) the handling noise out of a V7-recorded track, without losing as much from the lows and low-mids. This is a tremendous advantage when your singer wants to hold the mic."

"Moreover, given its stellar sonic performance, it’s also a great dynamic mic for drums, guitar amps, and other instruments too. I think every studio should have at least one V7 — for tracking live vocals, but also for recording anything that would make you pull out your other favored dynamic mics. Given its price, you can probably afford to buy a few of them."
