AKG C12VR Valve Condenser Microphone

The AKG C12 VR 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 current microphone standards. The C 12 VR version is even more rugged, less susceptible to hum interference, and provides exceptionally low self noise. You'll be impressed by its remarkable performance!

The return of the 1-inch dual-diaphragm capsule and the original 6072A vacuum tube give the C 12 VR the same sound characteristics of 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.

Included:

  • AKG C12 VR microphone
  • Aluminum flight case
  • N12 VR remote power supply
  • H15 T elastic suspension
  • MK 12V R 30-foot connecting cable
  • W42 foam windscreen
