Avantone CK-1 FET Pencil Mic – No Longer Available

Cardioid mic with SSM shock-mount & extra omni & hyper-cardioid capsules in real wooden box
MFR# CK-1

Product Description

The Avantone “Cabernet (C-series)” mics from Avantone Elevtronics are designed to offer true professional performance.  They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics.

The Avantone CK-1 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to fine studio-standard FET mics but at a fraction of their cost!  The rugged CK-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass.  Aesthetically the compact body features an elegant Metallic Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly.  The high quality FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

Any studio can proudly offer the CK-1 for instrumental and percussion miking.  It exudes class visually as well as sonically.  The CK-1 is equally at home on the stage for drum overheads, acoustic instruments and piano. The CK-1 includes three 19mm (3/4") interchangeable capsules to provide unlimited miking possibilities!  Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.  The rugged CK-1 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character.  The three capsules (cardioid, omni, and hyper-cardioid) offer versatility for accommodating virtually any miking task.  The included SSM Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic.  This isolation allows for superior professional results.

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.
