Affordable multi-pattern condenser mic for pro audio recording.

The V4 Gen 2 large-diaphragm condenser microphone delivers professional recording quality for a price within reach. Lovingly crafted over two years, Vanguard designed the V4 to be a versatile, reliable tool for serious musicians and recording engineers. With an acclaimed custom-voiced capsule and premium components, the V4 captures every nuance of your performance.

Superior Capsule Provides Extraordinary Sensitivity

The V4's 34 mm edge-terminated capsule features a thin 3μm gold-sputtered diaphragm that is extraordinarily sensitive, ensuring every detail of your sound is faithfully captured. Hand-tuned for a balanced frequency response, the capsule provides a natural tone that needs little EQ. You'll appreciate how well it conveys the character of vocals, acoustic instruments, drum overheads and more.

Transformerless Circuitry Delivers Pristine Audio

Vanguard designed a transformerless solid-state circuit for the V4 that matches the capsule's characteristics. Loaded with premium cryogenically treated components, the circuit provides wide dynamic range, high SPL handling and a low noise floor. The result is pristine audio quality with abundant headroom, minimal distortion and a frequency response of 20Hz–20kHz.

Premium Design and Built to Last

The V4's precision-machined stainless steel body is durable yet attractive with a high-gloss finish and polished nickel accents. Laser-engraved with your microphone's serial number, the V4 is built to meet Vanguard's stringent standards for performance, quality and reliability. With proper care, your V4 will provide years of service as a trusted tool for recording and performing.

Simple Controls for Versatile Use

Despite its premium quality, the V4 is easy to use. With the redesigned power supply you can select from nine different polar patterns to suit different recording needs. A -10dB pad attenuates high SPL signals, while a low-cut filter reduces unwanted low frequencies. With a standard 5-pin XLR output, the V4 works with most pro audio gear. For an all-purpose condenser mic that delivers outstanding results, choose the Vanguard V4.
