Avantone CR-14 Ribbon Microphone Details

The Avantone CR-14 is a bi-directional (figure 8) velocity ribbon microphone that is perfect for use in any studio, whether it be a modern, state-of-the-art studio or a private home studio. It offers the unique, pleasing sonic character that is similar to those classic ribbon mics of yesteryear. The special dual-ribbon design offers a better sensitivity rating than most single ribbon mics on the market. You will also find that it does NOT exhibit the very dark, muted character of some ribbon mics?On the contrary, you will find it to be full-range with a very, natural detailed sound. The ??in-phase? signal is achieved when the microphone is addressed from the front side of the mic. (Where the AVANTONE logo is shown) The CR-14 excels in a host of uses including studio solo vocals, group vocals and simultaneous vocal duets. Users also report extremely good results on piano, electric guitar cabs and acoustic guitars. The inherent natural sound of the CR-14 makes it a great choice for orchestral, woodwind & brass instruments as well as hand-percussion instruments. Very interesting and satisfying tracks can also be achieved using (2) CR-14??s for stereo tracking.

Still getting to know it but seems good June 12, 2014
Reviewer: Steve Gregoropoulos from Los Angeles, CA United States  
Price was great and the mic is well made and lovingly packaged.  Like any ribbon mic it has a learning curve and I am still learning though.  I've had spectacular results with strings.  With vocals (which are reportedly one of its strengths) I'm still sorting out finding the sweet spots and preamp settings.  But give me time.  The sound is nice.  All ribbon mics are fussy!

Fantastic value May 27, 2010
Reviewer: Stephen Lawson from Minneapolis, MN United States  
I bought two of these for testing and I am very happy. So far I have used them only on drum overheads and achieved an outstanding result. Build is very good - nice flight case and internal wooden box + shock mount.
