The VM-41 cardioid and the VM-40 omnidirectional Milab microphones
The VM-40 (omnidirectional) and VM-41 (cardioid) are both for operation on 48-volt MIPOW™ systems. Ruggedly constructed in a small physical size, the VM Series features a unique four-position ring switch to permit selection of either full-range frequency response or gentle roll-off from 1 kHz with 12 dB down at 50 Hz. A 10-dB pad is also incorporated for both full range and roll-off positions.

For all high-quality professional uses, and particularly impressive on acoustic instruments, overhead percussion, cymbals, snare and brass. Recommended position of use is from about three inches to several feet from source depending on sound pressure levels and desired degree of natural ambience pickup. May be used effectively as a podium/lectern microphone for public address.
