Product Description

Designed specifically for kick-drum recording, the D12 VR microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. The D12 VR is a large-diaphragm cardioid microphone with that delivers the pure character of the sound source.

With phantom power enabled, one of three switchable active-filter presets can be used to quickly adapt the microphone response to suit the desired kick-drum sound. The filter setting can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. In this mode the output level is also reduced by 10 dB automatically.
