Vanguard names Emerging as UK distributor, launches new mic

Emerging has been appointed as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for the US microphone company Vanguard Audio Labs in line with the launch of their new V13 Tube Condenser Microphone.

The Vanguard V13 is a large-diaphragm multi-pattern valve condenser mic that combines ‘vintage warmth with smooth modern detail’, specifically engineered with warm, full lows, a precise and detailed midrange, and a smooth high end.

One particularly important design objective was maintaining a low noise floor on the V13.

Recognising Emerging’s pro audio prowess, Vanguard CEO Derek Bargaehr said, “We were keen to work with Emerging because we knew their professionalism, experience, reputation and local market knowledge would be a good match for Vanguard Audio’s dedication to uncompromising quality in the Pro Audio market.”

Paul Mortimer, managing director of Emerging added: “The Vanguard Audio V13 complements our brand values perfectly as it offers great sound for an affordable price from a really innovative manufacture. We are very pleased to be offered the chance to develop the Vanguard Audio business in the UK”.

The V13 Tube mic is now shipping with an MSRP price of £950 inc VAT and will be available to demo through appointed pro audio dealers.
