The FLEA 12 is an exact replica of the AKG C12. It is equipped with Tim Campbell's CT12 capsule - a great choice if you are considering the clones of original CK12. The tube is a GE 6072 in five-star version which is minimally noisy and microphonic. These tubes were produced especially for military purposes and were used in the original C12. The transformer is our own replica of the original. The FLEA 12 comes standard with modern-style power supply with integradted pattern switch. This particular item, however, includes the vintage-style PSU and dedicated pattern-selector box.
In some applications, this mic will seem somewhat neutral, but its benefits will surely stand out during mix-down. It is a fantastic choice for vocals, acoustic instruments and ambient miking.
