Crystal clear sound
for those who love purity


R12 is the microphone dedicated to the fans of the historical C12. A linear three-dimensional microphone, open and airy in the mid and treble range. It is appreciated both for high-fidelity vocal and instrumental miking, and particularly suitable for classical recordings.


Only the best components

For this microphone we have chosen a particular capsule made of polyester, type CK12, while considering the valve, we only use the best NOS General Electric model 6072 5-star. All valves are tested one by one.

Power is the key

The special power supply incorporates a multiple filtering cell, and completely eliminates the ripple. It contains high quality BLACK GATE ™ electrolytic capacitors. The capsule and anode bias voltages have been completely revised in accordance with the original AKG design.
