Dripping with Vintage Flavor!Who said first-class sound had to come at a premium?? That person obviously hadn't gotten the inside story on Avantone's CV-12. This large-diaphragm tube condenser mic is a part of Avantone's Cabernet Series (aka C Series), and this Wine-red baby really does perform just like your favorite bottle of Cabernet.
Put your CV-12 in front of a singer, and the vocals pour out rich, smooth, and colorful — complete with the body you want to make them sit perfectly in the mix. Acoustic guitar? Just the right amount of flavor, with the natural wood tones of the instrument flowing through. But unlike your glass of Cabernet, the CV-12 is versatile enough to adapt to your ever-changing needs, thanks to nine selectable polar patterns you can switch right along the power supply. That way, you can always match the CV-12 to the source you're recording.
All in all, after one sip of this gorgeous mic's sonic flavor, you'll realize that the Avantone CV-12 may well be your last. And with the premium accessories included at this low price — a shockmount, a metal road case, a wooden box — we're convinced the CV-12 is one our best-kept secrets. Get vintage-flavored tone that fits in your budget — and make your audiophile friends wonder why your tracks are sounding better than theirs! You can do it with the Avantone CV-12.
