Product Description

Any studio can proudly offer the CK7 as a vocal mic or utility condenser due to its versatility...It exudes class visually as well as sonically.

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 CK7 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to some of the very finest FET mics...but at a fraction of their cost!

Features
- The rugged CK7 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of BRASS.

- Aesthetically, it features an elegant Metallic Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill.

- The transformer coupled Discreet Class A FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

- The CK7 in its normal stock version uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. This represents Avantone's commitment to quality as these normally are the type of components that are implemented by microphone modder/hot-rodders !

- Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

- The versatile CK7 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing 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.

- 3-Pattern CLASS A FET Microphone with dual 35mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsules

- -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches

- Each CK7 Mic & wooden mic box has a serial number

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Defective, right out of the box"
Overall: A quote taken from the Avantone website: "We do 100% Inspection of our mics right here in the USA. Most of our competition skips over this entirely or at best run "spot-checks". This takes us extra time but we want to do it. We care!" Oh really? They care? So why is my new mic defective? The pattern switch is momentary in the cardioid position and there is noticeable background noise. There is no way that this mic was checked/tested, or inspected (properly) as claimed, unless it actually was, but these inspections are, realistically ... worthless Avantone bunk. I am sure a non-defective mic will be a great performer, as expected, until it goes bad. I fully expect that my RMA replacement will be short lived also. This mic gets a 5 star Wow Factor rating for the dubious Avantone claim, as quoted above. Wow, was I ever fooled.

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.
