Aesthetically, the mic features an elegant Buttercream baked on finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill.

It exudes class visually as well as sonically. The versatile Avantone BV-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 unwanted vibrations up into the mic.
