Powerful. Natural. Focused.
The V7 X brings all of your instruments to life.
A supercardioid dynamic instrument microphone that lifts the sonic curtain in front of your sources, connecting listeners with your performance at a whole new level.
The sibling to the acclaimed vocal-oriented V7, the V7 X is a dynamic instrument microphone ideal for a broad range of instrumental applications - both in the studio and on stage. Its specialized capsule’s innovative aluminum voice coil and brand new acoustic design are specifically tailored for full-bandwidth instrumental reinforcement & recording, with a perfect balance of detailed highs and deep, ultra-powerful lows, allowing for use on nearly any source from electric guitar cabinets to brass instruments, snare drums to choir, and many more.
In a world crowded with dynamic microphones - and largely led by a small handful of “industry standards” - the V7 has rapidly achieved high praise from both artists and reviewers alike with its stunningly realistic sound quality, immense gain before feedback, and superior off-axis rejection.
The V7 X brings these same desirable qualities to your instruments, providing a perfectly natural picture of their sound in any live or studio environment - and thus offering an even closer connection between the instrument and the listener.
THE HEART OF THE V7 X: THE NEW DMC7 X CAPSULE
The all-new custom DMC7 X capsule offers the same technologies and features as its sibling within the V7, including its innovative, specialized aluminum voice coil. While the V7 is optimized for vocals, the capsule in the V7 X has been custom-tuned for instrumental use. The upper frequency range is smooth & balanced, capturing every nuance of the player, while the lowered resonance and extended, powerful low frequency response allows for a complete spectrum of instruments: 4x12 guitar cabs, toms, snares, horns, rotary organs, or any other instrument all come through loud, natural, and clear.
The supercardioid pattern of this sophisticated capsule also helps isolate your instruments from other sound sources on the stage - efficiently reducing stage bleed and ensuring copious amounts of gain before feedback.
Proven neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances and high workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, high-end sound quality and superb consistency.
ALL-METAL HOUSING & BEVELED SPRING STEEL GRILLE
The V7 X's road-ready design is all metal - no plastic parts here. The chassis' high quality, highly durable zinc alloy is designed to hold up under on-stage stress for years, and the spring steel mesh grille is dent-proof and corrosion-free for perfect reliability.
And see that beveled edge around the grille? This prevents the V7 X from rolling when set down on top of an amp or the stage floor.
UNIQUE, PATENTED INTEGRATED CAPSULE SUSPENSION
The V7 X’s advanced internal capsule suspension efficiently decouples the capsule from mechanical vibration, isolating it from shocks & jolts and providing exceptionally low rumble and handling noise as compared to other mics in its class.
The red internal windscreen efficiently reduces unwanted wind noise - and in case you prefer a more visually subtle black windscreen, we have also included one as a standard accessory.
GOLD-PLATED XLR CONNECTOR
The V7 X's gold-plated XLR connector also ensures a loss-free and reliable signal connection for years to come.

"The V7 X has a weight and a thickness to the low-end; it’s really an excellent-sounding microphone, and it’s really efficient in the upper mids.”
“We have a detuned snare out here, and we’ve been searching for something for a while, and by applying [the V7 X] we get that super depth that hits you right in the gut, along with a nice crack too. It’s been fantastic."
- Andy Meyer, FOH Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine) - sE Artist
"The V7 X is a great mic that has a lot of gain before feedback and a smooth, natural frequency response that keeps the vocals crisp without being harsh, and keeps the body of my vocalists without being too muddy."
- Nick Weber, Monitor Engineer / PM (Flogging Molly) - sE Artist
"I'm liking the V7 X - it reminds me of the Audix i5 but with more clarity and a thicker bottom end. Since I have had it on, it gives the cabs a more solid place in the mix without being bright."
- Gary Sharpe, FOH Engineer (Every Time I Die, Between the Buried And Me) - sE Artist
“We have a multi-instrumentalist that plays mandolin, 12-String, banjo, zither, dulcimer, whistles, etc. I used to need two different mics on 3 mixer channels to adjust for his weapon of choice but this mic handles everything quite well, especially mandolin that can sound wimpy or dull with other mics.”
“I use this live for snare top and I have been blown away. As have anyone else who I've shown it to. Great mic and I need more.”
“Best snare mic I"ve heard to date.”
“I am now going to the V7 X first instead of 57.. that says it all.”
“The V7 X absolutely sounds way and above better than [two other industry standards], in my opinion. I love the look, feel and most importantly the sound of this. The price is great too.”
“I haven't tried this on anything but snare drum. I just put it there, and it hasn't moved! Very tight pattern with less hi hat bleed, for example. No honky/boxy stuff like the [industry standard] it is replacing. Just an all around useful, solid sound that seems to work with any drum. Love it, 5 stars. Very durable and solid build as well.”
