Violet Design The Wedge Condenser Microphone Product Description
Violet Design The Wedge condenser microphone from Violet Design is meticulously designed for the highest quality of studio recording. Re-engineered from Violet's original "Dolly" model, The Wedge produces deep, dimensional sound, and boasts a wider range of applications than its predecessor. Its multi-layered, wedge-shaped head effectively reduces plosive sounds and other noises such as wind or breath. The Wedge's capsule is made of high-quality, 6-micron Mylar film, and it's innovative freestanding design results in a more open and detailed sound. The critical first stage circuit is located close to the capsule to further improve sound quality. The large dual-diaphragm is precisely tensioned, adjusted on back plates, and sputtered with Violet's exclusive gold alloy mixture. This process allows The Wedge to give a faster impulse transient response without sound coloration or low-frequency reduction, and also makes it capable of handling high sound pressure levels.
The internal solid-state preamplifier of The Wedge is a Class-A fully discrete transformer-less circuit, built using high quality, hand selected components. The circuit is designed to achieve the highest audio standards and provides flat frequency response, high dynamics, low self-noise, and very low audio distortion of all types. The Wedge should be used with high quality, regulated 48V phantom power. Gold-plated pins on the XLR output provide a clean and noise-free connection. The Wedge has a dark red body with black trim and comes in a fine hardwood box.
