Product Description

The Avantone Cabernet (C-series) mics from Avant Electronics are designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics.

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! Avantone's rugged CK-6 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass.

Aesthetically, the compact body features an elegant Metallic Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill. The transformerless Discreet Class A FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

Uses Include:
Studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano, etc...

The -10dB attenuation switch can be engaged when miking 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.

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 Shock Mount 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. Transformerless CLASS A FET Microphone w/ 32mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsule
-10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches

Items Included:
- Avantone CK-6 Cardioid FET Microphone
- Avantone Custom Retro Shock Mount
- Elegant padded genuine wooden Mic box
- Padded Aluminum storage / travel case

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
