Avantone Pro BV-1 MkII

Packing incredible value and a vintage sound that's well beyond its price tag, Avantone's BV-1 MkII is a tube condenser microphone well suited for any studio. While the original was loved by many, this new version ups the ante with premium component selection for optimum sound and performance—even down to individual capacitors. A special Cinemag transformer was created just for this mic, so you can be sure that Avantone gave utmost consideration to making the BV-1 MkII the best microphone it could be.

Being a tube-powered microphone, the BV-1 MkII includes its companion power supply unit and a Sommer 7-pin cable for connecting the two together. This unit is also where directional pattern choices are made, with a number of different options available for getting the best sound out of any instrument or source. Add in the included shockmount, pop filter, and wooden travel case, and it's clear the BV-1 MkII comes in a complete package curated with care. Treat your studio to a new microphone and grab the BV-1 MkII.
