From the edge-terminated capsule to the handpicked components and custom output transformer, this mic is all about vintage vibe.
The capsule is our edge-terminated CK12 recreation. The tube is a low-noise, selected 6072a type from Russia. The circuit is our version of the ElaM 251 circuit, made with handpicked, audiophile-grade parts including a custom US-made transformer.
Each mic is built by hand in California.
Quantities are limited.
Power supply options
This microphone includes our standard power supply. It is an imported, zener-regulated supply that is comparable to what you would get with most any commercial tube mic under $1000.
As an alternative, we offer a custom, US-made premium tube mic power supply. These are handbuilt in California. To upgrade your V-12 to this premium PSU, order it here and choose the "upgrade bundle" option for discounted pricing. Note - the upgrade bundle pricing is only available if the PSU is ordered in the same shopping cart as the V-12 microphone.
