The AKG C 12 VR Microphone is a studio condenser microphone that's a favorite among some of the most sought after recording engineers in the industry. Modeled directly after the classic AKG C 12, the C 12 VR (vintage restoration) maintains it's popularity since it's inception in the late 1940's. Like the C 12, the C 12 VR features a 1" diaphragm and unique condenser tube (6072) design, providing warmth and presence characteristics unique to the microphone.

In addition to the classic sound, the C 12 VR is a versatile microphone featuring 9 switchable pickup patterns including omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-eight, with variations of each. Also provided is switchable attenuation between -10 or -20dB, and a boost of +10db to accommodate all studio recording requirements.  An aluminum case is included, and the C 12 VR is backed by a 3-year warranty.

This package of the C 12 VR provides two C 12 VR microphones, tube-matched in sensitivity and frequency response in order to provide optimum results while recording in stereo.
