The No.1 Website for Pro Audio


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.
