Warmy dude

Maximoff, 11.04.2018
Well, maybe one of the best investing in my studio.
Warm, soft, full body sound.

Most of all I use it in piano and voice recording.
I have a Grand Piano Yamaha GB1, and it is about 11 years in exploitation. Grand piano now has a bright and a bit striking sound. But with that mic - I achieved a warm and beautiful tembre, maybe a bit vintage sound. But it is amazing. Especialy, for that price.

Also tested it with RODE K2. In my opinion - CV-12 is more "tube" mic, than K2. Without metal in high freq.

Pros:
- Great, warm sounding mic
- Balanced frequency responce
- Comfortable case for transporting
- Pleasant design

Cons:
- The shockmount is not strong enough. Requires carefull managing. It is very easy accidentally to take off the rubber and drop the mic.
- Placement of XLR sockets and turn on button on power supply is not very comfortable for managing.

Let this baby warm up, plug in to a p solo preamp and this thing can pick up a mouse fart 10 miles away !
