The Avantone BV-12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance is comparable to some of the fine vintage tube mics of the 1950's and 1960's...but at a fraction of their cost!
Vintage Microphone Design
The BV-12's has a precision machined brass body and is fiited with a dual 34mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsule assembly. The BV-12 features an elegant "retro" Buttercream finish, together with polished nickel trim and grill. The transformer coupled tube circuitry can also be found in other industry-leading European vintage designs.
Classic Valve Tone
The BV-12 delivers a warm, smooth sonic character due to the "hand selected" Russian made 6072A tube. The PS-1 power supply expands the BV-12's capabilities by not only offering Omni, Cardioid, Figure 8 patterns; but also 6 'in-between" patterns for ultra versatility. Any professional and home studio can proudly offer the BV-12 as a primary vocal mic...It exudes class visually as well as sonically.
The Avantone BV12 has a wonderfully clear top end that helps vocals and instrument to cut through the mix and works its magic on studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano and as a room microphone.
