Avantone Pro CV-28 overview

  • 1Description

The CV-28 Small-Capsule Tube Condenser Microphone from Avantone Pro is designed with interchangeable capsules for cardioid, hypercardioid, and omni polar patterns. The mic features a military-grade 6J1B tube, and offers vintage tone comparable to mics from the 1950s and '60s, at a fraction of the price. It excels on acoustic guitar, mandolin, percussion, piano, as a drum overhead, and more.

The CV-28 offers both a -15 dB attenuation switch and a switchable high-pass filter that rolls off 6 dB/octave at 80 Hz. The mic is powered by the included PS-28 power supply, which is switchable between 115 and 230 VAC. You also get a padded wooden box for the mic, and an aluminum flight case that fits the CV-28 and all of its accessories.

    Avantone Pro CV-28 reviews

    CV-28 Small-Capsule Tube Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic! We have had this mic for about 2 or 3 years now and I absolutely love it. Although against conventional wisdom, I actually use this mic on vocals. I have tried numerous mics for my wife's voice... TLM103s, AT4050s, several others that I can't remember, all well known mics. None of them sounded quite right. We got one of these on a whim and gave it a shot... WOW! Perfect! It also sounds GREAT on acoustics and I mic'd up my electric guitars yesterday for some tracking. These are very underrated microphones in my opinion. I would like to pickup another one to buy a pair. The only thing I don't like is having to change out the capsules to change pickup patterns. But that's a minor gripe, overall. The best way I know to explain how this mic sounds is that it is very clear in a great way. Another word might be intimate.
