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 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.
The P-12 comes with a 7-conductor cable with standard 7-pin XLR connector.
Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.
