Ryland Talamo is a Grammy-nominated audio engineer & multi-instrumentalist who has worked with artists including Ben Rector, The Newsboys, Cody Simpson, and many more. Here’s what he had to say about his V13 (Serial #50) and V44S (Serial #197):

“The V13 brings all of the elements we love about tube microphones, all wrapped up in a gorgeous wine-red body, and at a price point that is unbelievable. I’d been missing a stellar go-to mic for piano, acoustic guitar, and vocals outside of the bigger studios I frequent and the V13 has settled in quite nicely. The V44s is a beast of a microphone with super-smooth highs and a nice roundness in the lows and mids; the versatility in such a small footprint is astounding–particularly the ingenious input/output splitter with a built-in phase-inverted output for use in live contexts. Vanguard Audio Labs is creating some truly excellent mics and I’m proud to have them on my projects and as a part of my studio.”
