The CV-12BLA takes what you love about the CV-12 even further! Black Lion Audio has spent over a decade perfecting the art of modding gear. Employing this expertise, Avantone has partnered with them to develop the CV-12BLA. This partnership resulted in a meticulous look at every single component of the classic CV-12. The high-mid bump that the CV12 is known for was tamed and a new capsule was used to further smooth the highs and bring out the lows resulting in balanceda frequency response. Flat response coupled with higher headroom allows the microphone to be more of a “utilitarian” microphone that sounds great on just about everything. We particularly find that full range sourcesarewhere the CV-12BLA really shines.

The coupling capacitor is an industry favorite Solen FastCap, which was chosen for its transparency. A34mmCK12 styled capsule which was chosen to compliment the new circuit. The CV-12BLA features a completely redesigned power supply, featuring a new low-noise circuit.The CV-12BLA includes the new Jetsun shock mount. Not only does this shock mount help isolate the microphone from the stand, but the front section is also left open, allowing instruments and windscreens to get several inches closer to the headshell. This design feature allows artists to take advantage of an increased proximity effect, something much more difficult to do with a fully round shock mount.
