OVERVIEW

Welcome to WeissKlang V13,

 

a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a natural frequency response, an excellent impulse response and a high performance.

What should a condenser microphone be like?
What should it sound like?
Which technology offers the best quality?

 

These questions were answered in a long-term process of conception and collaboration with well-known audio engineers.

  • Natural and linear sound

  • Cardioid polar pattern

  • Transformerless circuit design

  • Low self-noise

  • Reduced body resonance

  • Gold-sputtered WMK-13 capsule

 

DEVELOPMENT

The characteristics of both voices and musical instruments are unique. Therefore the demands for a versatile large-diaphragm microphone are very high.

 

The WeissKlang V13 works with a discrete and transformerless circuit as well as superior components, which ensure excellent acoustic qualities and a high sound pressure level transmission.

With the excellent impulse response and the clear and linear character, the V13 is perfectly suitable for critical recording processes.

The V13 has a high dynamic range and with a low self equivalent noise level of

<10 dB-A it's almost noise-free.
Due to the frequency range of 20 - 20.000 Hz the microphone is able to record extremely low (and high) frequencies.

The newly developed WMK-13 capsule is gold-sputtered, acoustically well-balanced and least sensitive at the rear (cardioid).

The circuit and the capsule are matched, in order to get the best possible acoustic properties.

We rely on measurement data, but we also consider the human hearing.

Why choose WeissKlang?​

The characteristics define themselves by the quality of the components.

By using and matching high-graded and hand-selected parts, the WeissKlang V13 offers a natural and flat frequency response as well as a smooth polar response.

Durable capacitors from Germany and military-grade resistors provide an accurate signal processing. 

Focused on the essentials 

The WeissKlang V13 comes with a timeless design. The body is made of copper and aluminum.
The slightly roughened and powder-coated surface is very resistant and durable.

Thanks to a patented manufacturing process, the body resonances were reduced to a minimum.

The included MA-1 shock mount isolates the microphone from physical vibration, floor and stand noise. The low frequency absorption goes up to 18 dB.

 

Equipped with a soft foam layer the MA-1 provides a stable and fast mounting with adjustable angle.

 

The flexible rubber bands offer an ideal isolation and are replaceable.

REVIEWS

DELAMAR (06/2016)

“Versatile and well-balanced LDC microphone with shock mount.
This microphone delivers just as promised: a linear sound.


Vocals, guitars and (almost) any other instrument have the right balance, and also the impulse response makes a good impression.”
