AKG D12 VR Active Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone
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.
- 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!
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.
