Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone

The Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone is a versatile mic designed to produce professional results with a clean sonic character. Incorporating transformer coupled tube circuitry and the finest materials, the CV95 yields a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

The Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone is designed to offer true professional performance and meets or surpasses the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics. The Avantone CV-95 Tube Microphone is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to well known mics of similar series...but at a fraction of their cost!

The rugged Avantone CV-95 Tube Microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, the Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly. The transformer coupled tube circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

The Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone houses a 25mm gold-sputtered 6 micron Mylar capsule. In its normal stock version, it uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. This represents the Avantone's commitment to quality as these normally are the type of "upgrade" components that are implemented by microphone modders/hot-rodders! Any studio can proudly offer the Avantone CV-95 Tube Microphone as a vocal mic or utility condenser due to its versatility...It exudes class visually as well as sonically.

Manufactured using the finest materials, the Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone yields a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. The classically designed Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character. The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results. The 9 patterns allow the Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone to be used in a variety of situations.

The gold-sputtered, 6 micron diaphragm has a unique high frequency response that allows recordings to cut through the mix. The cardioid pattern is generally best used on vocals and single instruments. The omni mode works well in incorporating some room sound into the track. The figure 8 pattern allows 2 vocalists to use the Avantone CV95 Tube Microphone at the same time from opposite sides.

The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the Avantone CV95 Tube Mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results.

The PS-1BV 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.
