Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? VERY SOLID MIC HOUSING, VERY SOLID POWER SUPPLY BOX, HEAVY DUTY CABLES = ALL PRO QUALITY! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? 9 POLAR PATTERNS, HIGH-PASS FILTER, LOW FREQUENCY ROLL-OFF = ALL PRO FEATURES! Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? VERY EASY TO CONNECT AND SELECTING POLAR PATTERNS. Sound How is the tone? NO B.S. HERE! FIRST OF ALL, YOU GOT TO CHANGE OUT THE STOCKED 12AY7 / 6072A RUSSIAN MADE TUBE. THEN INSTALL A JAN PHILIPS 5751 (got mine at tubedepot.com). THE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND QUALITY IS 200%! TOTALLY AWSOME WARMTH, VERY TIGHT LOWS, FREQUENCIES FROM MID TO HIGH ARE BEAUTIFULLY CRISP, THICK, AND SMOOTH! TOTALLY NO BRITTLENESS HERE! I HAD A CHANCE TO HEAR AN AKG C12 FEW YEARS AGO, THIS AVANTONE CV12 IS AN AKG C12 REBORN!
AWESOME MICROPHONE

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Outstanding!!!! Open the microphone up and you will see that it was not thrown together with the cheapest parts. Comes in nice packaging!!! Very solid build and components. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Good features for a microphone in this price range. The ability to dial in a specific polar pattern, even the in-betweens. 10db pad and High Pass are a plus. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Just plug the mic into the supplied power supply, plug mic cable into your desired pre, dial in you polar pattern setting, check your levels and you are all set. Sound How is the tone? Awesome!!! This has been my go to mic for the past few years!!! I tracked half of Sho Baraka's "Lion & Liars" album with this mic going through an ART MPA Gold pre with a swapped Mullard tube. The other half of the album was recorded with a U87 into an Avalon. Ours sounds just as good, if not better. The single "We Can Be More" was tracked off of the CV-12.
