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 CV-12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance is comparable to some of the fine vintage tube mics of the 1950's & 1960's…but at a fraction of their cost! Avantone’s rugged CV-12 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 grill. The transformer coupled tube circuitry has its origins in famous European vintage designs. Any studio can proudly offer the CV-12 as a primary vocal mic…It exudes class visually as well as sonically. Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. The versatile CV-12 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing 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.

Very clear sound, better than other mics I got before.



A great vocal mic


I am a pro producer and worked with many many mics through my 25 years of experience. This mic is truely a professional vocal mic. You get a big, clear, 3D, lively sound. it takes dynamics very well. but even so its sound is leaning towards the intimate because of the nice presence in the high frequencies. I wouldnt call it an all around mic because for most instruments i would prefer a more neutral sounding mic like a ribbon or an audio technica 40 etc. This one is for presence and it does an unbelieveably good job at it.
