Originally produced in 1953, the C12 became a unique product renowned for its remote capsule polarizing capabilities. The microphone’s versatile sound is a result of its polar pattern variety. The ability to change between cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-8 can be changed directly from the power supply, making it even more accessibly versatile. The reissue, like the original, is built to last an entire career thanks to its superior parts, specially designed power supply and seamless functionality.

As well as the microphone itself, the C12 includes useful accessories to assist with your recording. The M910 powers your microphone with the traditional power output of the vintage model. To support this is the modern circuit board and slow ramping filament voltage, which helps prolong your tubes’ life and consistency. The M810 cable has high quality insulation and oxygen free copper conductors for a for premium audio transfer. The rugged FC10 flight case has split compartments to keep your microphone and accessories organised. The M710 shock mount keeps your microphone upright and stable in recording situations. The accessories are ideal to produce the optimum quality from your C12 microphone.
