I am proud to have distributed Brauner mics in the U.K.for many years. Arguably the most transparent microphones money can buy. Brauner continues the tradition of German hand-built quality, a refreshing manufacturer in a world of machine-built products.  Dirk Brauner’s attention to detail and rigorous testing is a benchmark in quality microphones.

Due to Covid and other factors, BRAUNER Has Suspended production until 2022.




There are people in this world who can not afford to risk buying budget equipment. People whose work is too important to be degraded by imperfect tools. These people take their work very seriously and are customers of Brauner Microphones.
We do not claim to build the best microphones in the world. However, we do set out with this exact goal in mind. Whether we have achieved it or not, is an opinion left to the only people in this world who are qualified to make it – our customers!

Each microphone is hand built to the most exacting standards.

  • Never before did I come across a microphone of this caliber. The VMA is the best microphone I have ever worked with.

  • I got a call from a friend of mine who was working on a Janet Jackson mix that we had recorded vocals on and the producer,
    Rodney Jerkins, kept asking about the vocal sound, what mic we used, if it was a vintage mic. I had to smile when I told him it was not a vintage mic but a Brauner VMA! I LOVE my Brauner!
