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.
