    The Avantone Buttercream (B-series) mics are designed to offer premium professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics.

    The rugged BV-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Retro-Butter-Cream finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill. The transformer coupled tube circuitry offers a modern-day, affordable solution to the desire to capture the character of famous European and American vintage designs. The BV-1 is manufactured using premium grade resistors and capacitors along with precision machined brass structural components that yield a very solid feel, superb sonic integrity and rugged reliability. Rear vents aid in stabilising internal temperature to help secure tube longevity

    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.

    The power supply offers access not only to the OMNI, CARDIOID, and FIGURE-8 patterns but also 6 'in-between' settings. Most vocals will be best suited to Cardioid pattern but you may experiment to satisfy yourself. The omni-mode works well in some rooms for ambient room mic usage.
