After the success of their Vintage V11 microphone, JZ Microphones has decided to expand their product range with a budget series named simply – J. The first product is the J1. They say that, although targeted to more budget oriented bedroom studios, J1 is still completely handcrafted in Latvia, EU under the supervision of Juris Zarins.
A spokesperson told us, "J1 will be housed in a flat-shaped, grey coloured body with a shockmount already included in the set. A wire mesh grill will be covering the capsule with active diaphrragm of 21mm. This brand new capsule is produced using JZ Microphones patented Golden Drop technology."
