    Avantone CK-40 Large-Diaphragm Stereo Microphone Product Description

    The versatile Avantone CK40 Stereo Class A FET microphone features twin large 35mm center-terminated pressure gradient transducers. 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 CK40 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to some of the world's very finest stereo FET mics, but at a fraction of their cost.


    - Uses include: Studio group vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano, room mic, etc...
    - The three patterns, (Cardioid, Omni, and Figure 8) allow the CK40 to be used in a variety of situations including M-S and Blumlein recording.
    - 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.
    - Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.
    - Extra-large dual 35 mm center-terminated Euro style capsules
    - The versatile Stereo CK40 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character.
    - The included custom shock mount inhibits the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results.

    The versatile Avantone CK40 Stereo Class A FET microphone features twin large 35mm center-terminated pressure gradient transducers. Their close physical proximity places them in a tight vertical array to allow accurate stereo imaging without phase issues arising. The top capsule/grill assembly rotates up to 180 degrees relative to the lower capsule/grill assembly. This feature along with the multi-pattern independent selector choices allow for all stereo recording techniques to be utilized. (XY-Coincident / Blumlein, M-S)

    The 2 sets of pad, pattern select and LF rolloff switches independently control the capsules. (Front switches control the lower fixed grill/capsule while the rear switches control the upper rotating headgrill.)

    The CK40 operates on standard 48 volt phantom power and includes a 5-Pin mic cable that plugs into the included 1x2 stereo splitter box. Two standard XLR mic cables are all that is required to connect to a phantom powered mic preamp/console channel.
