Violet Design / The Amesthyst
Most people walking into the studio don't know about Violet microphones, but it always draws our clients' eyes, and wins over their ears. Designed by Juris Zarins who worked for Blue Microphones (you can see the resemblance!) and later founded JZ Microphones, Violet microphones are hand made in Latvia and have found a loving home at Stone Studio. We have a pair of the "vintage" models and they are our go-to microphone for vocals. They offer detail and depth that we just can't find out of other large diaphragm condenser microphones.
