The AKG C 12 VR (Vintage Reissue) is the modern equivalent to the classic C 12 produced beginning in 1953. The C 12 VR continues to set the standard for quality, providing its famed warmth and presence, which are direct results of its unique tube (6072), diaphragm and transformer design. Internal microphone switching is provided for pre-attenuation of -10 dB, -20 dB, and +10 dB boost. The available pick up patterns include omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-eight with six intermediate patterns. The nine remotely selectable pickup patterns make the C 12 VR a necessity not only for vocals, but for instrumental solo recording, as well. The C 12 VR comes with its own professional flight case, power supply (N 12 VR), elastic suspension (H 15/T), 30 ft multi-conductor connecting cable (MK 12 VR), and foamwindscreen (W 42).
