The workhorse of Avantone’s visually unmistakable Cabernet and Nickle finished “ C-series” mics. The Ck-6 Classic utilizes a large (30mm) diaphragm and transformer-less condenser circuit for accurate, colorless sound reproduction. A cardioid polar pattern helps the CK-1 focus on the objective, producing a clean sonic signature that resists bleed through. An Independently switchable 80Hz high-pass filter can be engaged to further abate low frequency rumble.
The CK-6 Classic is a multi-purpose mic: sensitive enough for use on vocal tracks and acoustic instruments, and strong enough to handle high volume amplified instruments (like an electric guitar cabinet). A -10dB attenuation switch can be engaged when miking very high SPL sources to keep from overloading the electronics.
The CK-6 Classic touts a solid low end, full midrange, and smooth, airy highs-all traits of top-quality pro-level FET-style large diaphragm condenser mics. Typical aftermarket modifications like metalized Polypropylene capacitors are built right into Avantone’s “stock” design. Avantone’s CK-6 Classic proves that a high price tag isn’t a necessary trait of a great LDC studio mic.
A 16-point “Retro” style shock mount, with extra bands is included.
Avantone CK-6 PLUS
Avantone’s “Plus” package CK-6 features a slight larger 32-millimeter diaphragm, that adds some low end, to an already pleasing bass response. The CK-6+ also comes accessorized with a protective foam bedded protective steel mic box, that fits inside a wooden storage/transport box with the Retro Shock Mount.
