If there were ever a microphone that was the epitome of classic, hi-fidelity sound, it would be the Austrian-designed C12. Originally developed by AKG Acoustics in 1953, the C12 is revered for its smooth, airy frequency response. 

Every part of the original C12 microphone has been reverse engineered and recreated to preserve the impressive point-to-point construction and aesthetic of the original. This elegant and open design cascades beautifully from top to bottom, revealing every detail of what is truly a handmade instrument. Headgrilles, connectors, capsule mounts, plastic decks and more are all compatible with vintage AKG C12s in need of service. 

As well as the 3 listed pickup patterns, there are 6 intermediate stages as found in the original.

 

Each C12 microphone comes complete with M 910 power supply, M 810 25’ Sommer tube microphone cable, Rycote shockmount, FC10 locking flight case and WB10 wooden microphone box.
