Comments about Avantone Pro Cv-12 Multi-Pattern Large Capsule Tube Condenser:
I am a pro producer and worked with many many mics through my 25 years of experience.
This mic is truely a professional vocal mic.
You get a big, clear, 3D, lively sound.
it takes dynamics very well. but even so its sound is leaning towards the intimate because of the nice presence in the high frequencies.
I wouldnt call it an all around mic because for most instruments i would prefer a more neutral sounding mic like a ribbon or an audio technica 40 etc. This one is for presence and it does an unbelieveably good job at it.
