The Avantone CV12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to some of the very finest vintage tube vocal mics….but at a fraction of their cost!

I love this thing!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
It’s a really good product for the money. It naturally adds more warmth and fullness to my audio recordings and still retain a good amount of clarity and high end.

Mic worked fine, cable didn't
What is your opinion of this product?
Bought this mic to test against some others in my studio.. The microphone worked fine and sounded nice. Warm and neutral. However, the dedicated audio/power supply cable didn't connect to the mic tightly, so it made ugly noises at every slight movement. I prefer mics that just use phantom power. I'll be returning this, but it is a very nice sounding mic for the price.

AVANTONE CV12 + JAN PHILIPS 5751 TUBE = AKG C12...MAYBE BETTER!
VERY SOLID MIC HOUSING, VERY SOLID POWER SUPPLY BOX, HEAVY DUTY CABLES = ALL PRO QUALITY!
9 POLAR PATTERNS, HIGH-PASS FILTER, LOW FREQUENCY ROLL-OFF = ALL PRO FEATURES!
VERY EASY TO CONNECT AND SELECTING POLAR PATTERNS.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
