Overview

The Avantone "Cabernet (C-series)" are premium microphones designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of some much higher priced mics. The Avantone CV-12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance are comparable to some of the finest vintage tube mics of the 1950' & 1960', but at a fraction of the cost.

The rugged CV-12 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill. Any studio can proudly offer the CV-12 as a primary vocal mic┬ŽIt exudes class visually as well as sonically. Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

The versatile CV-12 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character. The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results.

    Comments about Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Large Capsule Tube Condenser Microphone:

    I've used Nuemans, Shure, Telefunkens, Sonys, & Rode microphones in studios all over the U.S.A. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quietness and articulation of this mic. It had a very open sound and easily captured the breath and intimacy in both male and female voices in "quite" songs. And....when pushed hard with Rock material....this mic worked flawlessly. It easily captured the "essence" of what it was being fed into it. This is now my "Go To" mic for vocals. Guitar Center....this mic ROCKS !!!!!

        For the price, this is a fantastic mic. Easily worth considerably more. Durable, heavy-duty, and feature packed. The sound is pristine and warm. Exactly what you would want from a tube condensor mic.

          Comments about Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Large Capsule Tube Condenser Microphone:

          Warning: if you can not sing and have poor mic technique and etiquette this mic will expose you. You can not put this mic in front of an amateur. It has a "dark" yet pristine character to it. It's a quiet mic and it's great for me bcuz I live in noisy NYC with an above train almost right by my window. I recommend coupling this mic with a clean "colorless" mic preamp. I'm using a Daking Mic Pre 1 and Mogami cables for all connections. This mic is great for recording intimate jazz records vocally. For the price it's a very good mic. I also own a Shure SM7b, A Rode NT1000, a Oktava MK-319, a Shure SM58 and a MXL R40 ribbon mic and the CV-12 is what I use for my vocals
