This mic is as close a clone of the AKG C12 as I’ve had the pleasure to listen to. With this particular Clone we have not tried to clone the C12 part for part. In keeping with the NUDE value proposition of – Low Cost, Superb Sonic Quality Microphones – we’ve worked with our manufacturing partners to clone the Sonic Fingerprint of the C12. It's a big, warm but quite exacting and precise microphone with a distinct high end sparkle. It handles very high SPL so you can use it close up to amps etc. as per the original, it's a variable polar pattern microphone. The polar pattern is set on the power supply and you can get omni stepping through to figure eight with very subtle changes quite distinguishable. This microphone is an excellent addition to any studios microphone inventory. It offers that old skool tube driven big microphone sound in the tradition of AKG, Neumann and Telefunken etc. at a fraction of the cost. The variable polar pattern makes it an extremely versatile microphone that will shine across multiple applications such as recording vocals, guitar amps and any close mic’ing application requiring demanding pattern control.
