Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone

The Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone is a fantastic microphone perfect for voice and instruments. Nothing in it's price range comes close! the CV-12 offers an excellent value for money.

The Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to some of the very finest vintage tube vocal mics but at a fraction of their cost! The Avantone "Cabernet (C-series)" mics from Avantone are designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics.

The Avantone's 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. The Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone's transformer coupled tube circuitry has its origins in famous European vintage designs.

The Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone in its normal stock version uses high grade Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. This represents Avantone's commitment to quality as these normally are the type of components that are implemented by microphone modder/hot-rodders!

Any studio can proudly offer the Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone as a primary vocal mic! It exudes class visually as well as sonically. In fact, this is the ONLY microphone that TAYLOR SWIFT will use... and she has her pick of the litter.

The versatile Avantone CV-12 Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character.

What We Think

The Avantone CV-12 is without a doubt one of the best values in microphones available today. I consistently recommend this microphone and have nothing but happy customers as a result. The CV-12 just seems to have that right balance of body, clarity, and dimension that are the hallmarks of a great microphone for vocals, drum overheads and rooms, and acoustic instruments. Give one a try and you're likely to want a second one to make a great pair.

Avantone Mic purchase June 23, 2014
Reviewer: Chris Bergeron from Golden, CO United States  
Once everything was shipped it arrived very quickly and in excellent condition.  I was initially a little bummed that the bonus product (Avantone pop filter) that was bundled with the mic was out of stock, but then they offered to bundle it with one that is at least as good (was more expensive anyway) and it works great!

Thanks,
Chris

Believe The Hype! January 31, 2014
Reviewer: Evan Phillips from Anchorage, AK United States  
Just produced a record and used this mic all over our 10 day session.  The Avantone CV-12 adds warmth and color that you just don't get from FET microphones.  

I'm very happy with this purchase.  Well worth the money.
