The Mic Shop MS-12 embodies everything and more that the classic vintage AKG C12 is known for and that one aspires to hear in their recordings and performances. Recent clones of the AKG C12 have not delivered as the original vintage classics-- until now. The Mic Shop MS-12 is no clone, but a jewel in the enlightening epiphany of sonic hope! Built with high quality electronic components, an accurate and formidable CK12 capsule, vintage character output transformer, hand selected measured low noise 6072A/12AY7 vacuum tube, Mogami cable, shock mount, fully regulated Peak Power supply, and all enclosed in a molded interior Pelican case.
The Mic Shop MS-12 is built in USA, and is the result of decades of classic vintage tube microphone repair/refurbishment/modification experience and wisdom, studio recording and production, and knowing what makes things "work"-- It will "out C12" any C12 you are aware of-- absolutely excellent for vocal recording, ambient room miking, strings, pianos, drum kit overheads,... anything which prompts you to think AKG C12!
It will draw great performances from the artist!
