Samar Audio SAMAR VL37

Our obsession for designing completely original, high-quality, modern microphones is obvious in our new handcrafted ribbon microphone.


Samar Audio SAMAR VL37

The VL37 uses the same components and has the same sound quality and level of performance found in our critically acclaimed MF65–the microphone, which raised the bar and set new standards for High-End ribbon microphones and essentially changed how they are being used by demanding engineers in today’s high-resolution recording.

The VL37 unparalleled sound is a result of our attention to detail and the level of craftsmanship that goes into each and every component we make.

The VL37 tonal balance combines a vintage vibe with a modern sound, creating a unique but affordable recording tool. Its bi-directional, figure 8, symmetrical polar pattern is perfect when used on drum overheads, choir, piano, violin, orchestra, brass instruments, vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, room microphones, and speaker cabinets, among other recording, broadcast, and classical music applications. It has a Stainless Steel body and comes in a US-made wooden box and anti-vibration shockproof clip.

The VL37 high SPL handling, built-in pop filter, and symmetrical polar response are perfect for demanding producers, musicians, and engineers in recording studios and for live sound reproduction.
