The Flamingo Junior

Violet Design - The Flamingo Junior

"The Flamingo Junior" Series of studio microphones are side-addressed unidirectional microphones designed for professional audio recording where sound quality and musical character is of the utmost importance. "The Junior" uses a single-diaphragm cardioid electrostatic transducer, providing vintage tone with transparent highs, optimized vocal presence and fundamental low-frequency register with minimal proximity effect. The acoustically transparent head construction reduces internal resonances, optimizes the polar pattern and keeps sound details as close to unaffected as possible. There is an integrated shockmount within the head and an external compact studio shockmount included to reduce stand rumble, outside infrasonic interference and mechanical shocks.

"If you own a home or project studio, this would be a great choice for your primary vocal mic (but you'd get the added bonus of it being great on almost any source)."

The internal Class 'A' fully discrete, 48V phantom powered preamplifier provides high output, flat audio-response and ultra-low distortion and noise. A custom-wound large humbucking audio transformer balances the output circuits, isolates the microphone from external interference and adds "analog warmth" to the sound. Gold-plated contacts on the output XLR connector provide a noise-free connection. The Flamingo Junior - Vintage

"The Junior" is available in 2 styles. "The Flamingo Junior Standard" has a polished violet body and "The Flamingo Junior Vintage" has a matte black body. Matched stereo or surround sets can be special ordered. The use of an external pop filter is recommended for close vocals.


Applications:

"The Flamingo Junior" has a medium bright tone and is designed for all-around recording studio applications including vocals and instrumental work. The custom-tuned frequency response has smooth enhancement at the lowest registers, mid-range at 2kHz 3kHz, and also in the 12kHz region, yielding recordings with low-end punch and high-end air. You will find it to be very pleasing on a wide range of musical applications, especially as a vocal microphone when used with an external pop filter.
