Together with the VP-120/6-RV power supply, the VM-212 is capable of
"Recreating" that magical AKG C12 sound. By virtue of the
microphone/power supply design, this combination of components has the
ability to capture the "Space" between the music. Again, this is
something that made AKG C12 so popular.
The VM-951 valve microphone, finished in
"British Racing Green", is the same in appearance
as the VM-212. The VM-951, uses a capsule
"Similar" to that of the original CK12 type,
which is assembled/tuned on-site. A "Selected" low noise
"Pentode" valve, is utilized for
Impedance conversion. This combination of
components, along with a very large matching transformer, enables the microphone to
capture the weight/force, of
the sound produced by Drum Kit's, Big Bands, etc.
