    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. This represents Avantones commitment to quality as these normally are the type of 'upgrade' components that are implemented by microphone modder/hot-rodders!

    The high quality FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. Any studio can proudly offer the CK-1 for instrumental and percussion miking. It exudes class visually as well as sonically. The CK-1 is equally at home on the stage for drum overheads, acoustic instruments and piano.

    The CK-1 includes (3) 19 mm (3/4 inch) interchangeable capsules to provide unlimited miking possibilities! Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. The rugged CK-1 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character.

    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.

    The CK-1 has separate -10 dB pad & 80 Hz LF roll off switches. 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.
