ADK T-FET Vienna 12-T Microphone

Rarely do we get the opportunity to offer a ADK T-FET Vienna 12-T Microphone at such a great price. So why the deal? Well, this is the last of the original packaging, and we are blowing them out to make way for the new packaging. This mics is a new A-stock, with Aluminum case, ring mount, shock mount, cable, and pop filter.

The ADK T-FET Vienna 12-T Microphone brings a brilliance and shimmer to your tracks. The lifted top and upper mids provide a clear, detailed, and airy presence, that allows your tracks to cut through - yet maintain a natural and musical sound. All this is supported by a full mid/low mid, and a rolled off bottom that still provides a nice foundation. The ADK T-FET Vienna 12-T Microphone is perfect for stringed instruments, drum overheads, and vocals.

The ADK T-FET Vienna 12-T Microphone is the most brilliant of all ADK Custom Shop FET microphones. It has an almost effervescent high-end. It is a tri-polar microphone with selectable Cardioid, Figure-8, and Omni pickup patterns. The Vienna 12 model is based on a unique FET circuit that saturates gradually (unlike most condenser microphones which tend to clip abruptly). The microphone boasts an Australian-designed capsule, British Oxford transformer, hi-end Phillips Norelco uber-FET. manufactured with methods and materials usually found with hi-fi equipment, including even a $6 resistor - expensive considering most resistors cost just a few pennies each. It took three microphone experts including a PhD in Physics, a design genius in Belgium and a 40 year-old microphone collection to create it! Add two-way attenuation pads (8 and 16 dB) to enable end-user to tailor the dynamic behavior of the microphone to the situation and obtain new textures, with rarely the need for outboard processors or even equalization.

All Class-A FET design manufactured in 3 Zigma Aerospace Manufacturing facility with British Oxford Transformer, and premium quality Low-Noise 3 Zigma capsules with Vintage Voicing Curves. The audiophile circuitry differs from lesser-designs in that it is designed for Soft-Saturation at extremely high SPL as instead of going into the "crunch" and unpleasant distortion (not the good kind of distortion!) of hard-clipping.
