The Avantone CK-7 houses a 35mm gold-sputtered thin Mylar capsule. The CK-7 uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path.

Any studio can proudly offer the CK-7 as a vocal mic or utility condenser due to its versatility...It exudes class visually as well as sonically.

The cardioid pattern is generally best used on vocals and single instruments. The omni mode works well in incorporating some room sound into the track. The figure 8 pattern allows 2 vocalists to use the mic at the same time from opposite sides. The CK-7 has separate -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches....The -10dB attenuation switch can be engaged when miking very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics. The 80Hz high-pass filter switch can be engaged to reduce rumble and to keep unwanted low frequencies from "muddying up" the track.


The Avantone CK7 is a very versatile condenser microphone and will be your go-to microphone for studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano and room ambience.
