Product Description

The Avantone BV12 Custom Tube Condenser Microphone employs premium components, design and craftsmanship to provide nothing less than professional results.

The design, character and performance of the Avantone BV12 Custom is comparable to some of the fine vintage tube mics of the 50's and 60's, but at a fraction of their cost!
