At Vanguard Audio Labs, we aim to be very different from other brands in our price range. The V34C is designed and precision-built in limited quantities to “no-compromise” standards.
The V34C Lolli houses an extra-large 34mm edge-terminated, gold-sputtered 3µm Mylar dual-capsule assembly which is custom-voiced with a proprietary hand-tuning process. We then place it in a shockmount saddle nestled in a retro-aesthetic chassis, which is CNC-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminum billets. Open-weave mesh, carefully radiused interior, and precision-machined venting prevent standing reflections and allow for an “open-air” voicing. We engineered the V34C Lolli head to spin 360 degrees while mounted on our V1 microphone, allowing for quick Y-axis positioning adjustments with no futzing around with mic stands.
The aircraft-grade aluminum housing harkens back to the classic broadcast microphones of yesteryear. Both grills can be aligned either vertically or horizontally simply by removing two screws. The gold grill mesh denotes the front side of the capsule, while the black chrome grill mesh marks the rear side.
The V34C was designed by a team of experts with more than 65 years of experience and vetted by world-famous award-winning engineers and producers.
