Pro-quality Range and Mod-shop tone, without the Big Price.

The Big Boy of Avantone’s "Cabernet (C-series)" true condenser FET circuit LDC mic family. Avantone’s proven transformer coupled circuit is paired with our new 34mm, super sensitive 6-micron capsule. Avantone’s new proprietary “edge terminated, dual backplate” and “custom style” Metalized capacitors help provide exactly what you’d want from the finest “studio-standard” FET-LDC mics money can buy. A full low-end, rich midrange response and well-defined smooth highs, without the harsh edge associated with mics that don’t cost a king’s ransom. 

Anyone that is familiar with Avantone’s C-series, knows they are built tough. The CK-7 sports a solid brass milled hull, and woven steel-grill, without any breakable plastic parts employed. A custom “Retro-style” 16-point shock mount provides superior isolation from vibration, assuring no low-end resonance ever reaches the mic. An 80k high pass and -10db pad are ready to be engaged, to keep your track immaculately clear from unwanted noise, and distortion free. When you consider the three-way polar pattern selector (Cardioid, Omnidirectional and figure 8), full range response, and noise abatement, the CK-7 might be the most versatile, and inexpensive FET LDC available.
