New Mic Recreates The C12 Sound


JZ Microphones is now shipping its new LDC Vintage 12 condenser microphone. Here's what they have to say about it...
Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful Vintage 47 & Vintage 67 microphones which were inspired by the classic Neumann originals, JZ Microphones now offers their version of the legendary AKG C12.
The Vintage 12 incorporates the best qualities of the original C12 and enhances them with features unique to JZ such as the Golden Drop Technology which provides a more detailed and transparent capsule response. The replacement of the original C12 tubes with high quality transistor technology provides equivalent frequency response with fewer maintenance and care issues.
Unlike other companies that simply make copies, the JZ philosophy in re-creating vintage microphones is to combine classic qualities of the originals with innovative technologies that provide enhancements. The validity of this approach is evidenced by the success of the first two JZ Vintage series models, the V47 and V67, which combine unique innovations such as internal, adjustable shock mounts with vintage qualities of the originals.
In 2007 JZ Microphones was established in Riga, Latvia. After twenty years of designing several dozen successful microphones, Designer Juris Zarins decided to redirect his experience and passion for design into his own line of handcrafted recording microphones. JZ Microphones have resulted from the marriage of open-minded design and a deep understanding of fine microphone construction. JZ Microphones combine all of the elements critical to world-class microphone design; patented capsule technology, precision electronics and innovative industrial design.
