The affordable high quality chameleon SDC Mic.

The Avantone CK-1 is a high quality FET-circuit SDC (small diaphragm condenser) mic, that’s got much more going for it than its affordable price portrays. Though designed to complement our C-series snare, tom, and Bass drum mics, the CK-1 provides top performance with a wide range of acoustic instruments (Drum overheads, Upright Piano, String, and Winds and more). Our signature Cabernet-red finish over a finely milled brass hull, with polished nickel silver accents make a visually perfect (and durable) match with our Drum Mic packages. 

The CK-1 performs with stunning results in mono, or in paired for stereo applications. Cardioid, Hypercardioid and Omnidirectional polar pattern capsules are included, adding to the CK-1’s chameleon like versatility. Metalized Polypropylene and top-grade Polystyrene caps are used stock, eliminating the need for costly Hot-Rod modifications before you even get started. True to the “Avantone way” the CK-1 is the affordable alternative that will standup or surpass any “industry standard” mic in its class in the studio or with live, with road rugged reliability
