As far as I know, the C12 had only one body style and length. It is the Neumann U47 that had the earlier long-body, and then the later short-body. A C12 is a long mike. And expensive. I'd guesstimate a good C12 to be worth at least $8K with the power-supply. If it's really minty-fresh, $9K.

A good resource is Toni at Telefunken USA.

www.drefahlaudio.com in Germany.

Peter makes some of the best power supplies around and I'm sure he can fit you with one and some proper cables. He can also do a check up, capsule cleaning and top notch service or repair.

Why did I know it was not going to have the power-supply? That makes it worth much much less. Maybe half. Does it have the box? The cable?

no cables no power supply no box...
but I looked to capsule- looks beutiful.
I think with real cost at about 800$ what I paid for mic what I trade for AKG.... isn't bad deal heh
Anyway I want to keep it..
