AKG Acoustics C 12 VR (Vintage Revival) Microphone 9 Switchable Pickup Patterns -

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.
