Avantone CK-6 Large-Diaphragm Condenser

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.

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.

Features:

- Large-diaphragm cardioid condenser suited for studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano, etc...
- Transformerless CLASS A FET Microphone w/ 32mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsule
- Switchable -10 dB attenuation pad: Engage when miking very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics.
- 80 Hz high-pass filter switch: Reduce rumble and 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.
- Included Custom Retro Shock Mount -- 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.

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

"MORE MIC FOR YOUR DOLLAR!!! AND ZZOUNDS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BUY IT!!! They are FAST, FRIENDLY AND ALWAYS HELPFUL!!! They are"
Sound: I can't give this a 10 because, obviously there are better sounding mic's out there...BUT for the PRICE...this is an OUTSTANDING VALUE!!! Feature: 10 dbl Pad AND Roll Off....in a $180 mic...that comes in an OAK, VELVET lined wooden box INSIDE an Aluminum Case WITH a Shock Mount and extra Shock Mount Winding.....for the money.....THERE IS NO BETTER VALUE!! Ease of Use: Plug it in...set the switches...turn on the Phantom Power and set the levels....does't get any easier then that! Quality: Chrome Plated Nickel Diaphragm cage and Cabernet Painted BRASS Capsule. Sound quality is SPECTACULAR! Value: BANG FOR BUCK....this IS the Mic!!! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had it long enough to put Avant Support to the test....hope I don't have to! The Wow Factor: It's a beautiful piece of equipment! AND housed in a beautiful Velvet Lined and padded Oak Box INSIDE an Aluminum case WITH a VERY NICE RETRO Shock Mount. VERY NICE!!! Overall: I think I will be quite satisfied.

"A Budget Mic With A Pro-Level Sound"
Overall: I recieved my CK-6 as a gift, and what a gift it is! I own an Avantone CV-12 so just for fun we A/B'd the two.(The we being 3 sound engineers with over 30+ yrs experience each) Then we A/B'd it with an AKG 420, AKG 220, similar budget mics, price-wise. The CK-6 proved to be better than the 220 w/o a doubt. The CK-6 and AKG 420 were close in price, but 2 out of 3 chose the Avantone. What blew us away was testing CK-6 against the CV-12, a mic that is a quality tube mic with 9 p/u patterns. Both Avantones have a "tone", as do the AKG's; different brands,different tones even with same specs. The CV-12 beat them all, hands down, but the 6 shined in so many ways, all 3 of us had to admit we were shocked. The CK-6 is an awesome mic,worth every penny, hard to believe it cost less than 200 spending gitas! Seriously, call zZounds today and order yours...be happy like me!

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.
