AKG D12

Classical standard for bass drum recording

  • first moving coil microphone with cardioid polar pattern and nice proximity effect
  • originally developed for voice/speech and therefore more universal than its successor D112, the frequency response of which is optimized for bass drum
  • was the first of a big family of models with very similar capsule systems (D20, D25, D30, etc.)
  • complex capsule construction with a large diaphragm and an external bass chamber ensures a full, round low-end
  • manufacturing period: 1953-1990 (Version D12E: 1978-1990)

Favourite applications: For more than half a century studio standard for the bass drum. Also suitable for other low-frequency sources (bass amp, tuba)
