Large capsule multi-pattern tube mic w/ retro shock-mount, power supply, wooden mic box in tweed case
MFR# BV1

Product Description

The Avantone BV-1 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone.  The design, character and performance is comparable to some of the finest vintage tube mics of the 1950s & 1960s but at a fraction of their cost!  Our rugged BV-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass.  Aesthetically, it features an elegant retro-butter-cream finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill.  The transformer coupled tube circuitry offers a modern-day, affordable solution to the desire to capture the character of famous European and American vintage designs.  Rear vents aid in stabilizing internal temperature to help secure tube longevity.  Any studio can proudly offer the BV-1 as a primary vocal mic…It exudes class visually as well as sonically.  Manufactured using premium grade resistors and capacitors along with precision machined brass structural components that yield a very solid feel, superb sonic integrity and rugged reliability.  The versatile BV-1 mic is able to produce professional results with an open, warm, pleasing sonic character.  The included custom retro shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic.

  • Nine pattern tube microphone with 34mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsule assembly
  • 10dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
