The Avantone CK-1 microphone's design, character and performance can be compared directly to fine studio-standard FET micsbut, at a fraction of their cost.
The rugged CK-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and capsule assembly.
The CK-1 in its normal stock version uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalized Polypropylene capacitors in the audio path. The high quality FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. The CK-1 is equally at home on the stage for drum overheads, acoustic instruments and piano.
The CK-1 includes (3) 19mm (3/4") interchangeable capsules to provide unlimited miking possibilities.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. The 3 capsules (cardioid, omni, and Hyper-cardioid) offer versatility for accommodating virtually any miking task.
