Avantone CK-6 FET Mic – No Longer Available

Large 32mm capsule cardioid FET mic - with shock - wooden mic box in aluminum road case
MFR# CK-6

Product Description

The Avantone CK-6 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!

Our rugged CK-6 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 grill.  The transformerless discreet Class A FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs.

Uses Include:

  • Studio vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, piano, etc.
  • The -10dB attenuation switch can be engaged when miking very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics. 
  • The 80Hz high-pass filter switch can be engaged to reduce rumble and to keep unwanted low frequencies from “muddying up” the track 
  • Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability
  • The versatile CK-6 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean 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. This isolation allows for superior professional results.
  • Transformerless Class A FET Microphone w/ 32mm gold sputtered thin Mylar capsule
  • -10 dB 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.
