    Avantone CK-1 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone 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-1 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.

    Aesthetically the compact body features an elegant Metallic Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly. The high-quality FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. The rugged CK-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass.

    The CK-1 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 "upgrade" components that are implemented by microphone modder/hot-rodders.

    Any studio can proudly offer the CK-1 for instrumental and percussion miking. It exudes class visually as well as sonically. The CK-1 is equally at home on the stage for drum overheads, acoustic instruments and piano.

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

    The rugged CK-1 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character.

    Three interchangeable 19 mm (3/4") capsules (cardioid, omni, and hypercardioid) offer versatility for accommodating virtually any miking task.

    The included SSM 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.

    Separate -10 dB pad and 80 Hz LF roll-off switches

    Uses include cymbals, hi-hats, acoustic guitar, drum overheads, piano, percussion, etc. -- anywhere you'd use a pencil condenser.

    The -10 dB 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.
