The C 12 is considered one of the first famous tube microphones
in the history of recording. This collector's item is still very
much sought after and engineers all over the world love it for its
fantastic, unique sound. The C 12 VR started a remarkable
renaissance of the original. It is similar to the original C 12,
from the capsule sound to the original 6072A vacuum tube. The only
difference is that its self noise and distortion specs were
optimized to meet the current state of the art. The C 12 VR rerun
is even more rugged, less susceptible to hum interference, and
provides exceptionally low self noise.
The rerun of the 1-inch dual-diaphragm capsule and the original
6072A vacuum tube provide the same sound characterized by warmth,
clarity, and presence that had made the C 12 world famous. Forget
your EQ - the C 12 VR provides a perfect sound with no external
processing. From omni to cardioid to figure-eight, no less than
nine polar patterns are selectable on the remote control. With two
remotely controllable bass rolloff filters, switchable
preattenuation pad, and selectable 10 dB increase in nominal
sensitivity, the C 12 VR will meet the most diverse challenges. The
output transformer uses a special winding to minimize low-frequency
distortion, and internal shock mounts effectively reduce handling
noise. The extensive features make the C 12 VR a necessity not only
for vocals, but for instrumental solo recording, as well.
