Elite Condenser Vocal Microphone
The VX10 condenser vocal microphone was designed to set new performance standards for live sound and broadcast applications. With a uniformly controlled frequency response from 40 Hz – 20 kHz, the VX10 is highly sensitive to transient response and will reproduce vocals and speech with exceptional detail and realism.
The VX10 has a cardioid polar pattern which helps isolate vocals. This mic includes a 21 mm gold vapor capsule and a multi-stage internal pop filter. It is also available in a low output model (VX10LO) for greater control with loud stage volumes or extremely powerful vocalists.
Aside from vocals, the VX10 cardioid condenser microphone will capture acoustic instruments such as guitars, woodwinds, brasses, percussion toys, drum overheads, hi-hats, and pianos.

Sound on Sound: Testing the VX5 and VX10
“The VX10 comes closest to what I think of as the studio mic sound, and indeed would be perfectly happy in a recording environment, so it could well be a practical choice for those who both gig and record, or for engineers needing a high-quality mic for live recording sessions where the vocalist is singing in the same room as the band.”
“I’m so attached to the sound of my VX10, I won’t even go on stage without it.”
-John Sebastian, legendary singer, songwriter, guitarist.
“I’ve tried everything, and nothing even comes close to the VX10 for Jonatha.”
-Paul Mitchell, FOH enginner, Jonatha Brooke, Joe Sample, L’Image.
