C 12 VR Tube Condenser Microphone


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.

 

The C 12 VR is an exact replica of the original C 12, from the cap-sule 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.

 

Features:

  • Classic 1-inch condenser tube performance of the original AKG C 12
  • Dual diaphragm, 1" diameter gold sputtered mylar foil
  • Multiple patterns remotely controlled with silent switching
  • Uses the original 6072 vacuum tube
  • Uses the original 1950's dual diaphragm design for that same warmth, of the original
