Why buy the Avantone CV-12?

The Avantone CV-12 is a gorgeous microphone with aesthetics that hark back to the tube mics used in the 1950’s and ‘60s golden era of radio. If you want a mic that you can rely on for superior performance and to impress your guests, the CV-12 strikes the perfect balance of function and style. Here are three reasons why we think it’s a great choice:
  • Versatility — The CV-12 is a truly versatile mic perfect not just for podcasting, but for studio vocals, acoustic guitar, and a range of other instruments. Its 9 polar patterns make it a good fit for podcasts that shift between single-host, dual-host, and interview-style show formats.
  • Style — If you have a deep appreciation for the art of broadcasting, you’ll love the vintage flair of the CV-12. Its cabernet, red wine finish will have your guests drooling and your podcaster friends cringing with jealousy.
  • Performance — The CV-12 is no beginners’ mic. It’s built with a high level of advanced functionality and will serve your hosting needs for many years if you think you need an XLR mic that can meet your high recording demands.
