The Avantone "Cabernet (C-series)" mics are designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics. The Avantone CK-40 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone.

Rugged Construction
The rugged CK-40 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of bass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill. The Discreet Class-A Low-Noise FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity, and rugged reliability. The versatile Avantone CK-40 Stereo Class-A FET microphone features twin large 35 mm center-terminated pressure gradient transducers. Their close physical proximity places them in a tight vertical array to allow accurate stereo imaging without phase issues arising. The top capsule/grill assembly rotates up to 180-degrees relative to the lower capsule/grill assembly. This feature along with the multi-pattern independent selector choices allow for all stereo recording techniques to be utilized. (XY-Coincident / Blumlein, M-S)

Perfect for any Recording Situation
The 2 sets of pads, pattern select and LF roll-off switches independently control the capsules. The 3 patterns allow the CK-40 to be used in a variety of situations including M-S recording. The -10 dB attenuation switch can be engaged when micing very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics. The 80 Hz high-pass filter switch can be engaged to reduce rumble and to keep unwanted low frequencies from "muddying up" the track. The CK-40 operates on standard +48v phantom power and includes a 5-Pin mic cable that plugs into the included 1 x 2 stereo splitter box. Two standard XLR mic cables are then all that is required to connect to a phantom powered mic preamp/console channel.

Included Shockmount
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.
