JZ Microphones introduces the LDC Vintage 12
JZ Microphones’ new Vintage 12 condenser microphone is claimed to be the result of the manufacturer re-imagining vintage microphones to ‘combine the classic qualities of the originals with innovative technologies that provide enhancements’.
Based on what the microphone manufacturer describes as the legendary AKG C12, the Vintage 12 incorporates the originals features whilst providing enhancements. One such enhancement is the inclusion of Golden Drop Technology, designed to provide a more detailed and transparent capsule response.
Replacing the original C12 tubes is high quality transistor technology, which JZ Microphones claims provides equivalent frequency response with fewer maintenance and care issues.
