Avantone BV-12 Tube Microphone Details

The Avantone BV-12 tube microphone is a sleek-looking, tube mic that is based on a combination of the two most popular microphones in the Avantone line; the world-renowned CV-12 and the BV-1. It is a direct result of a desire to infuse the beautiful hi-end from the CV-12 while capturing the smooth and creamy upper mids and rock-solid bottom end of the BV1. By utilizing the same capsule and extra heavy-duty power supply of the BV-1 in the BV-12, they have produced a unique ??Hybrid? Tube mic that is extremely balanced across the entire range.

The BV-12 features a Custom Designed 34mm dual capsule with a premium 6072A tube. Nine selectable polar patterns are available, all switchable from the front of the power supply. The BV-12 has a ??Retro/Butter Cream? finish with polished nickel trim. It comes complete with a wooden mic box, vintage style power supply, retro-style shock mount, Mogami mic cable, 3/8?-5/8? stand adapter insert, all packaged in a tweed alligator trim retro-styled carrying case. The Avantone BV-12 also features a 5-year warranty.

Avantone BV-12 Tube Microphone Features

  • Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.
  • The versatile BV-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.
  • The PS-1 power supply offers access not only to the above OMNI, CARDIOID, and FIGURE-8 patterns but also 6 "in-between" settings. Most vocals will be best suited to Cardioid pattern but you may experiment to satisfy yourself. The omni-mode works well in some rooms for ambient room mic usage.
  • -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches.
