The Avantone “Cabernet (C-series)” mics are designed to offer true professional performance. They will meet or surpass the performance and specifications of much higher priced mics.

The CV-12 is truly a gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. The design, character and performance is comparable to some of the fine vintage tube mics of the 1950’s & 1960’s…but at a fraction of their cost!

The versatile CV-12 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character.

Our rugged CV-12 microphone body and capsule assembly are precision machined of brass. Aesthetically, it features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and grill. The transformer coupled tube circuitry has its origins in famous European vintage designs. Any studio can proudly offer the CV-12 as a primary vocal mic…It exudes class visually as well as sonically. Manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

The versatile CV-12 mic is able to produce professional results with a warm, pleasing sonic character. The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic. This isolation allows for superior professional results.

        Warranty FAQ

        DO I NEED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY?

        Most manufacturers limit their warranty periods to keep their product costs competitive. It should come as no surprise that most problems occur after the manufacturer’s warranty is over. If you are like most consumers, you don't want to deal with the inevitable problems surrounding repairs. Who do you call for service? Are they reliable? Is a handyman capable of performing a long lasting, reliable repair on your instrument?

        Ranked #1 Extended Warranty

        CPS provides top notch warranty protection for your purchases to ensure life and longevity. This means that they care about you and your product long after your purchase has been made. This warranty offers reliable, hassle-free, comprehensive parts and labor protection for your product.

        You Need to Prepare for These Issues Today

        Bananas is an Authorized Consumer Priority Service Dealer. This means that they care about you and your products long after the purchase date. You can easily extend your manufacturer's warranty for a possible total of 5 years from the date of purchase.

        CPS Warranties Offer Reliable Protection for Your Product

        By purchasing a CPS accidental damage plan, you’re guaranteed years of worry free operation from your new product.

        Is a CPS Warranty just an extension of the existing manufacturer’s warranty?

        Actually, it’s an upgrade to your existing manufacturer’s warranty. A CPS Warranty offers benefits that aren’t offered by manufacturers like accidental damage & free shipping to and from the repair facility.

        What’s the difference between a Replacement Plan and Repair Plan?

        A Replacement Plan is available for products under $150. If the product fails, you will receive a replacement through Bananas.

        A Repair Plan is for products over $150 and offers free repair coverage for your product any time during the life of your warranty. If we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it!

        How am I covered?

        For the Replacement Plan, your coverage provides for a one-time replacement of the covered product.

        For the Repair Plan, you are covered for a period of up to five years (depending on which plan you purchase). Benefits include parts and labor for required repairs on your product.

        When does my warranty coverage start?

        Coverage begins on the 31st calendar day from when you purchased your product.

        Can I transfer the Protection Plan to a new owner?

        Yes! CPS Warranties are transferable between owners.

        What if I Need to Return my Product?

        If you return your product, Bananas returns the money you paid for the product protection plan. Depending on how much time has passed since your purchase, CPS may issue a prorated refund.

        Is my product covered if it’s stolen or if I lose it?

        Unfortunately the CPS Warranty does not cover lost or stolen products.

        Is there a service fee?

        Zero dollar service fee for the Replacement Plans and the Repair Plans.
