If there were ever a microphone that was the epitome of classic, hi-fidelity sound, it would be the AKG C12. The first of the AKG line of selectable pattern condenser mics, the C12 is revered for its smooth, airy response. Considered by many to be the finest sounding microphone ever produced, original C12 microphones are still in use in recording studios throughout the world.

The Telefunken C12 is incredibly detailed, capturing all the subtle nuances of a performance and transferring them back to the listener in a manner that is so realistic; you'll think you're listening to the source directly. Its silky smooth top end provides plenty of air without sounding harsh or artificial. Its midrange speaks clearly and articulately, capturing the source with a natural presence. Its low end is tight and focused, perfectly balanced with the rest of the frequency range.

These qualities make the Telefunken C12 a fantastic choice for all types of instruments, lending itself especially well to drum overheads, acoustic guitar, and vocals.
