The AKG C 12 VR is an replica of the original C 12, from the cap-sule sound to the original 6072A vacuum tube.

The only difference the AKG C 12 VR and the AKG C 12 is that its self noise and some components were optimized to meet the current state of the art. No less than nine remotely selectable polar patterns, the legendary large-diaphragm capsule, and an original 6072A vacuum tube provide a sound that is simply beyond words.

The AKG C 12 VR comes complete with an aluminum carrying case, power supply, cable, windscreen, and spider type shock mount.
