Recreation of the legendary C 12 tube microphone.
  • Description
  • Features

The AKG C12 VR is a multi-pattern valve condensor microphone, and is a vintage reissue of the legendary original valve C12 from the 1950s.

Based on the stunning original C12, the AKG C12 VR is a reference valve studio condenser microphone, that features nine polar patterns selectable from a remote including figure of eight and omnidirectional. The original C12 is often considered to be the holy grail of vintage valve microphones by sound engineers. As one of the most revered and famous mics in history dating from the 1950s, the AKG C12 VR is the natural successor, painstakingly modelled as closely to the original as possible, with added improvements.

Building on the original, the AKG C12 VR uses the the same capsule and 6072 valve, and is precisely hand crafted in AKG’s home of Austria. Original units are hugely sought after and can fetch extreme sums of money when they appear on the market. Such is the demand for good C12s that AKG had to take it upon themselves to develop a tru…

Building on the original, the AKG C12 VR uses the the same capsule and 6072 valve, and is precisely hand crafted in AKG’s home of Austria. Original units are hugely sought after and can fetch extreme sums of money when they appear on the market. Such is the demand for good C12s that AKG had to take it upon themselves to develop a true reincarnation of the original, and in so doing they created the AKG C12 VR.

An exact replica, the AKG C12 VR produces the same sonic characteristics and has the same sounding capsule, and utilises the same valve in the circuitry. Furthermore the reissue actually improves upon the original by using components with better self noise characteristics designed to meet the demands of modern day recording techniques. The famous large capsule is in pride of place, and combined with the original valve delivers a truly sublime sound. Versatility is in abundance too, with 9 selectable polar patterns.

The AKG C12 VR is supplied with a high quality aluminium case, cabling, power supply, shock mount and windscreen.
