The CV-12 is one of the most "bang-for-your-buck" microphones in existence, and has been used to record countless projects. After gaining much success as a vocal mic, Avantone decided it's time to expand its coverage in the studio and on stage! Avantone is excited to announce that they have teamed up with Black Lion Audio to offer exactly that! Please welcome the CV-12BLA! With a flatter response and more headroom than before, the CV-12BLA takes what you love about the CV-12 even further! Throw it on drums or piano, close mic a guitar, or throw it on vocals for a finish so polished it'll put more expensive mics to shame!

About the CV-12BLA
Black Lion Audio has spent over a decade perfecting the art of modding gear. Employing this expertise, Avantone has partnered with them to develop the CV-12BLA. First and foremost, the circuit has been modified to have a flatter response. The high-mid bump that the CV12 is known for was tamed and a different capsule was used to further smooth the highs and bring out the lows resulting in more balance. This flatter response, coupled with higher headroom allows the microphone to be more of a "utilitarian" microphone that sounds great on just about everything. Avantone particularly found that full range sources are where the CV-12BLA really shined as the frequency range is balanced across the board. The coupling capacitor is an industry favorite Solen FastCap, which was chosen for its transparency. The 32 mm K67 capsule was replaced with a 34 mm CK12 styled capsule which was chosen to compliment the circuit. Leaving no stone unturned, the CV-12BLA features a completely redesigned power supply, featuring a low-noise circuit.
