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


Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser
The AVANTONE BV-1 manages to be a truly versatile, low noise microphone while retaining a very characteristically warm and rounded tone. Quite simply, the BV1 puts vocals right in front of your mix. 

The rugged BV-1 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant retro buttercream 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. Rear vents aid in stabilizing internal temperature to help secure tube longevity.

A microphone with class
Any studio can proudly offer the BV-1 as a primary Vocal mic…It exudes class visually as well as sonically. 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. The versatile BV-1 mic is able to produce professional results with an open,  warm, pleasing sonic character. The included custom retro shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning, while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic.

It could well be the only vocal microphone you'll ever need, however the Avantone BV1 also sounds exceptional on vocals, coustic guitar, mandolin, drum overheads, percussio and piano but the BV1 is versatile enough to sound good on pretty much anything. A really valuable addition to your studio or home recording setup.
