AKG D12 VR Active Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone

Large-diaphragm active cardioid dynamic microphone great for kick drum and bass applications
MFR# 3220H00010

Product Description

The AKG D12 VR is a large-diaphragm cardioid dynamic microphone. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance.

Without phantom power, the microphone delivers the pure character of the sound source. With phantom power enabled, one of three switchable active-filter presets can be used to quickly adapt the microphone response to suit the desired kick-drum sound. The filter setting can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. In this mode the output level is also reduced by 10 dB automatically.

Features:

  • Four different sound shapes
  • Ultra thin diaphragm
  • Optimized bass chamber
  • Original C414 transformer
  • Cardioid polar pattern

Awesome kick drum mic! I love the options and it sounds great. Used it for the first time the other day and it's punchy!

By IsmaelPineda on April 27, 2021

l this is probably the most versatile kick drum microphone on the market. It can achieve a wonderful latitude of tones, from vintage and Boxee, to deep and crisp..It’s quite possible to use this microphone on its own instead of grabbing for my usual twi-Mic solution for the inside of the kick drum. Highly recommend it. Dan at vintage king it’s a pleasure to deal with.

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
