AKG C 12 VR Large Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

Vintage re-issue large diaphragm tube mic
MFR# 2221X00040

Product Description

One of the most famous tube microphones in the history of recording was the legendary AKG C 12. In spite of vast changes in microphone engineering, these microphones in good condition are still very much sought after and extremely expensive.  Therefore, studio engineers vigorously demanded a rerun.

Features:

  • Recreates the legendary C 12 tube microphone
  • Nine remotely selectable polar patterns from omnidirectional to figure-eight
  • Complete with many useful accessories and aluminum carrying case

The AKG C 12 VR is an exact replica of the original C 12, from the capsule sound to the original 6072A vacuum tube.  The only difference is that its self noise and some components were optimized to meet the current state of the art.  No less than nine remotely selectable polar patterns, the legendary large-diaphragm capsule and an original 6072A vacuum tube provide a sound that is simply beyond words.

The C 12 VR comes complete with an aluminum carrying case, power supply, cable, windscreen, and spider type shock mount.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
