Built like the original
Like the classic C12 microphones of yesterday, the Telefunken C12 tube condenser mic is built using the original specifications. The large diaphragm and transformer are made by utilizing the original manufacturer's technical specifications, and the transformer is even made by the same manufacturer as the vintage ones were. Telefunken even uses an NOS microphone-grade tube in the C12 to capture that classic sound.
Real tube-fired tone that will impress
You can't deny the warmth of tube-driven mics. Telefunken's C12 tube condenser microphone sports a new old stock 6072a tube. You'll love the warm and detailed, accurate sound that this mic gives you, thanks to its tube design. Get that elusive tube mic sound with the Telefunken C12 tube condenser microphone.
Not just a one-trick-pony, the Telefunken C12 tube condenser microphone's power supply features switchable polar patterns. You get omni, cardioid, figure-8, and six other intermediate stages. In other words, no matter what you're miking, the C12 has a polar pattern to maximize it. Use the omni pattern to catch the sound of a great room or a group of singers, cardioid to reject unwanted sounds, and figure-8 is great for mid-side recording. The versatile and flexible Telefunken C12 tube condenser mic is ready for any session.
