The Peluso P 12 Tube Microphone is styled after AKG’s legendary vintage “C12″. Produced from 1953 to 1963, the “C12″ was revered by engineers for its beautiful vocal quality. The P-12 employs a dual sided edge terminated 34mm gold-coated Mylar capsule and a 6072A glass triode tube. The circuitry and transformer have been designed to match the vintage “C12″. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together in this beautiful full-bodied classic tube microphone.
The C 12 was been reissued by AKG in 1983 and are still sold to this day as the AKG C 12 VR. This mic new will cost you a whopping $5000.00. That’s a lot of cash for microphone that does not come near the classic sound of the original.
And once again another classic is reborn in a modern, reliable design from Peluso Microphone Lab. The Peluso P 12 Tube Microphone! This has been one of our favorites of Peluso Microphone Lab here at Pro Audio Boutique since its introduction. The sound of Peluso’s C 12 Clone is amazingly similiar to its vintage counter parts…if not better!
The P-12 is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the P-12 enables the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.
NEW for 2013! The P 12 features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.
