Product Description

KICK THE HAMMERfor bass drum live and recording applications

The D12 VR is a reference large-diaphragm dynamic microphone with cardioid polar pattern. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. Its warm sound is realized by the original C414 transformer, especially impressive at high signal levels. The D12 VR features three active filter presets to match its sound shape with the kick drums character. When activated, the output level is automatically reduced by 10 dB. The filter settings can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. Without phantom power, the microphone operates in passive mode and delivers the instruments pure sound.

Rich in History

Developed more than six decades ago, AKG achieved an international breakthrough in recording and broadcast technology with the introduction of its first dynamic microphone, the D12. The first-of-its-kind microphone became a staple in television and radio studios around the world, setting the standard for voice transmission in the 1950s and ‘60s. Today, HARMAN’s AKG is proud to introduce the newly designed D12 VR large-diaphragm cardioid microphone intended specifically for kick drum live and recording applications.

3 Active Sound Shapes

The vintage-style premium bass microphone offers three active sound shapes for recording: open kick drum, closed kick drum and vintage sound. D12 is manufactured with the original AKG C414 transformer from the 1970s, reinforcing AKG’s deep musical heritage.

Vintage Mic Reputation

“With the reputation AKG’s D12 brought to the recording and broadcast industry, the latest D12 VR embodies its predecessor with the quality and reliability AKG has been providing the audio industry for 65 years,” stated Thomas Umbauer, Product Manager, PPA, AKG. “The relaunched D12 VR will give tracked drums a vintage, yet crisp and modern sound, sure to make percussion tracks shine for professionals or casual artists around the world.”
