    The Avantone CK-6 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance can be compared directly to fine studio-standard FET mics, but at a fraction of their cost! The rugged CK-6 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 transformerless Discreet Class A FET circuitry will yield pleasing professional results comparable to much more expensive designs. The CK-6 houses a 32mm gold-sputter thin Mylar capsule.
    The CK-6 in its normal stock version uses high grade Polystyrene and Metalised 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 modders/hot-rodders!
    Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability, the versatile CK-6 mic is able to produce professional results with a clean sonic character.
    The included Custom Retro 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 CK-6 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.
