Manufacturer's Description from Avantone

This is the 2nd generation MONDO kick drum microphone from Avantone and a great deal of R&D effort has culminated in this rugged, great sounding mic. We feel it represents the very finest kick drum microphone available, both for live clubs & concerts, as well as serious studio recording projects. The Avantone MONDO kick drum offers a very aggressive frequency contour that sounds huge right out of the box, so most engineers will find little need for EQ.

 

Each Avantone MONDO kick drum mic is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly. As with all of our mics, there is NO PLASTIC to break! Aesthetically, each mic features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and a black grill assembly. All components are designed and manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

 

The Avantone MONDO features internal shockmounting on the capsule assembly to prevent the transmission of unwanted "rumble" from physical vibrations.

A unique feature of all our drum mics is pair of machined insets on the barrel of the microphone body. These insets allow the O-rings of the SSM shockmount to "lock" the mic into place, which prevents mic shifting and slippage.

 

The included SSM shock mount is as rugged as you can find and allows for a superb decoupling of the mics from unwanted low-frequency transfer and rumble. This feature results in a much tighter, less muddy sound than other brands of drum mics. The O-rings are manufactured using a custom formula. The new world class Ethylene Propylene formula provides enormous resistance to breakage, resistance to surface nicks and remains supple and effective even against dry, hot temperatures. It is resistant to ozone and weathering, which makes it great for use around electronics devices, and maintains its physical properties even in a stretched condition. Each SSM is constructed of heavy-duty die-cast zinc, which is not only incredibly durable but also adds mass, which contributes to vibration dampening/decoupling.

 

We round out the package with a rugged custom-molded and padded case to safely store and transport your Avantone mic.

 

The Avantone MONDO kick drum mic, SSM shockmount, and included carrying case are each inspected, tested, and carefully packed here in New York.

About Manufacturer

Avantone is a creative vehicle, enabling our core team to bring to market the things we see as missing in the industry. This can be as simple as a certain price point we feel should be met to give excellent quality for reasonable pricing. At other times, it may be an item that simply does not exist until we build it. We don't use the shotgun approach in creating a product line. Each and every product we create has passion and purpose behind it, whether it costs $20 or $1000. QUALITY: We do 100% Inspection of our mics right here in the USA. Most of our competition skips over this entirely or at best run "spot-checks". This takes us extra time but we want to do it. We care!
