The Atomic

The Atomic is a warm sounding condenser microphone making it a versatile studio microphone, and a brilliant choice for vocal recording. This is a low-cost microphone that can compete against microphones in a much higher price bracket. The Atomic microphone combines a single-membrane VD21 capsule and a discrete Class-A preamplifier with transformerless output, and benefits from Violet Design’s unique design and assembly process.

299 €

The large-sized head creates a free floating environment for the capsule which is beneficial in creating a natural and uncompressed signal. The VD21 membrane is extremely sensitive and picks up impulses very quickly for a transparent and dynamic performance recording.

A matched stereo pair can be special ordered.

The Atomic comes with a microphone holder included in a luxurious wooden box.
