Avantone CV12 Product Description

The AVANTONE CV-12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to fine studio-standard FET mics…but at a fraction of their cost!

Studio quality at affordable prices The rugged CV-12 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of Brass. Aesthetically the compact body features an elegant Metallic Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly. Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

This 9-Pattern Tube Microphone w/ dual 32mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsules is designed with circuitry that will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. It also features -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches for varied recording situations. The transformer coupled tube circuitry has its origins in famous European vintage designs and features a HAND SELECTED Russian made 6072A tube.

The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning, while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the microphone body. This isolation allows for superior professional results.

Applications The Avantone CV12 has a smooth and forward top end, helping sources to cut through the mix. Studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, room mic and piano are all applications where the CV12 shines.
