The CV-12 works well as a primary vocal mic. In design, character and performance it is comparable to some of the fine vintage tube mics of the 1950s and 1960s but at a fraction of the cost.
The microphone also comes with a Custom Retro Shockmount, which is perfect for precisely positioning the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations. This isolation gives superior professional results.
The CV-12 is manufactured using the finest materials, which gives a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability. It produces professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character. It is supplied with a dedicated PS-12 power supply that also allows selection of nine different polar patterns.
