AKG C12VR Microphone (used)
The AKG C 12 Tube Condenser Microphone is considered one of the first famous tube microphones in the history of recording. This collector's item is still very much sought after and engineers all over the world love it for its fantastic, unique sound. The C 12 VR started a remarkable renaissance of the original. It is similar to the original C 12, from the capsule sound to the original 6072A vacuum tube.
The only difference is that its self noise and distortion specs were optimized to meet the current state of the art. The C 12 VR rerun is even more rugged, less susceptible to hum interference, and provides exceptionally low self noise.
The rerun of the 1-inch dual-diaphragm capsule and the original 6072A vacuum tube provide the same sound characterized by warmth, clarity, and presence that had made the C 12 world famous. Forget your EQ - the C 12 VR provides a perfect sound with no external processing. From omni to cardioid to figure-eight, no less than nine polar patterns are selectable on the remote control.
With two remotely controllable bass rolloff filters, switchable preattenuation pad, and selectable 10 dB increase in nominal sensitivity, the C 12 VR will meet the most diverse challenges. The output transformer uses a special winding to minimize low-frequency distortion, and internal shock mounts effectively reduce handling noise. The extensive features make the C 12 VR a necessity not only for vocals, but for instrumental solo recording, as well.
This item is used but in very good condition. It comes in the original hard case and includes the C12 VR microphone, shockmount, cable, windshield and power supply.
