We are delighted to announce that the V7 MC1 wireless dynamic capsule (shown above on tour with Common) has been nominated for a TEC Award in the category of Microphones (Sound Reinforcement). Thank you so much to the TEC Awards nominating panel!
We are proud to announce that our V7 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone has been nominated for a 2018 NAMM TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Award in the category of Microphones - Sound Reinforcement!
Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
The nomination announcement follows a two-month call for entries of standout technical and creative products and projects that have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. A panel of respected industry voters from pro audio publications as well as members of professional music, technical and creative organizations, along with select NAMM members carefully evaluated each entry before selecting the V7 for the nomination.
Since its release in late 2016, the V7 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone has been seen on stage with artists ranging from Chris Stapleton to the Fleet Foxes, and its latest wireless capsule iteration (the V7 MC1) was recently spotted on Justin Timberlake's vocals at the Rock In Rio festival. The V7 has quickly gained many fans due to its high fidelity on-stage vocal sound, superior feedback rejection and ultra-low handling noise as compared to others in its class, and robust all-metal build quality.
The NAMM TEC Awards will be held in conjunction with The NAMM Show on Saturday, January 27 in Anaheim, California. The event begins with a reception at 6:00 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony at 7:00 p.m. Event tickets will be available for purchase in late September by visiting www.tecawards.org.
