Avantone CK-6 Large Capsule Cardioid FET Condenser Microphone
The Avantone "Cabernet (C-series)" mics are designed to offer true professional performance.
The Avantone CK-6 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to fine studio-standard FET mics but at a fraction of their cost. The rugged CK-6 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 capsule assembly. The transformerless Discreet Class A FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. The CK-6 houses a 32mm gold-sputter thin Mylar capsule.
The CK-6 in its normal stock version uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. This represents a commitment to quality as these normally are the type of "upgrade" components that are implemented by microphone modders/hot-rodders!
Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. The versatile CK-6 mic 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 mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results.
The CK-6 has separate -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches....The -10dB attenuation switch can be engaged when miking very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics. The 80Hz high-pass filter switch can be engaged to reduce rumble and to keep unwanted low frequencies from "muddying up" the track.
Uses Include: Studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano, etc
