The Avantone "Cabernet (C-series)" mics are designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics. The Avantone CV-95 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to well-known mics of similar series...but at a fraction of their cost!

The rugged CV-95 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly. The transformer coupled tube circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

The CV-95 houses a 25mm gold-sputtered 6 micron Mylar capsule. The CV-95 uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. This represents Avantone’s commitment to quality as these are normally the type of "upgrade" components that are implemented by microphone modders/hot-rodders! Any studio can proudly offer the CV-95 as a vocal mic or utility condenser due to its versatility...It exudes class visually as well as sonically.

Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability, the classically designed CV-95 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character. The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results. The 9 patterns allow the CV-95 to be used in a variety of situations.

The gold-sputtered, 6 micron diaphragm has a unique high frequency response that allows recordings to cut through the mix. 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.
