Recreates the legendary C 12 tube microphone.Nine remotely selectable polar patterns from omnidirectional to figure-eightComplete with many useful acces-sories and aluminum carrying caseOne 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.

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

Our CK12, CK13, and M7 capsules...
