Brauner Phantom Classic & Avalon V5 Pre/DI
Our Brauner Phantom Classic & Avalon V5 Pre/DI bundle offers a professional, flexible front end audio solution for the serious recording musician.
The Phantom Classic, like its predecessor the Phantom C (Cardioid), embodies reduction to the absolutely essential without compromise in performance.
The design philosophy of this large diaphragm FET microphone - which works purely in cardioid characteristic, guarantees a sound quality otherwise found only in our tube microphones. Its capsule is based on the ideal of the VM1 giving the Phantom C a very natural and pristine sound character.
The Phantom?s success was most recently augmented through the release of the limited edition Phantom AE (anniversary edition). This edition was released to mark the occasion of the company?s 10-year anniversary and was comprised of 1000 nickel colored as well as 1000 black microphones. After the paramount success of the limited Phantom anniversary series, we now deliver the legitimate successor of the Phantom C with the Phantom Classic.
The Phantom was nominated for TecAward in 2003 and received various awards by associated audio magazines.

"The V5 delivers Deep and Controlled Bass with a Musical Midrange for enhanced Vocal projection and Instrument resolution"
""the Avalon V5 will capture every magical performance and continues Avalon's passion and commitment to SONIC EXCELLENCE!"
Avalon DI-preamplifiers have been in use around the world since 1985. They have found their way into the world's leading musicians rigs and recording sessions and have been featured on thousands of the best selling (and sounding) albums, downloads and live performances. The V5 includes the best of the Avalon U5 DI functions with a studio quality preamplifier and "a new sonic addition". Two alternate solid-state topologies are cascaded to provide a rich, low midrange harmonic content not offered in other Avalon preamplifiers. This feature empowers the V5 with a new scale of sonic character.
The state-of-the-art DI input stage provides a very-high inpedance, "zero-load" effect on sensitive pickups and keyboards, while maintaining massive input headroom to +36dB before overload.
