Avantone has just released the Avantone BV-1 MKII Tube Microphone! The BV-1 MKII is a versatile tube mic with a MASSIVE sound that emulates the character of vintage 50’s and 60’s mics. Avantone took a "spare-no-expense" approach when developing this microphone, which is evident in the substantial look and feel of the mic and the included power supply. Packed with high-end components and capacitors throughout, it’s impressive that Avantone was able to keep the BV-1 MKII at an affordable price tag! This is not just a vocal mic, the BV-1 MKII is also a great choice for use with acoustic guitar, percussion, piano, and even guitar cabinets. It's a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone and it would be a great addition to your mic locker! The Avantone BV-1 MKII microphone is available for purchase NOW at Front End Audio! If you have any questions about the BV-1 MKII or any of Avantone's other products, give us a call and we'll be happy to assist.

The Avantone BV-1 Tube Microphone was Avantone's flagship microphone so it’s nice to see it re-released as the MKII. The mic has a really classic tube character. Detailed yet musical upper mids, a touch of air, full mids throughout, and a nice deep bottom end. Everything we tested it on here at Front End Audio performed very well so make sure you check out the videos. If you want that stereotypical "tube mic character", the Avantone BV-1 is a great choice that can handle any sound source. While I am sure this mic will most commonly be used for vocals, do not shy away from trying it elsewhere. The BV-1 is a really good sounding and performing microphone. Avantone made the right decision in bringing this mic back to market.
