JZ's latest, the Vintage 11, is not a replica of classic microphones such as U47, U67 or C12, as are others in the Vintage Series. The number 11 stands for 2011 as reference year, "when a new classic microphone has been created," offers JZ promotional material. The Vintage 11, now available for pre-order via JZ, lists for a low $699.
JZ Microphones introduced the Vintage series two years ago "with the aim to re-create vintage microphones and to unite classic qualities of the originals in combination with innovative technologies that provide various enhancements, such as the Golden Drop sputtering technique which provides a more detailed and transparent capsule response." The Vintage series includes the V47 and V67 (both of which have been reviewed by PAR) as well as the V12 large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone.
