The Upton CK12 is a faithful reproduction of the classic AKG CK12 capsule. The CK12 is considered by many to be one of the greatest microphone capsules ever produced. We spent over 3 years developing our manufacturing and tuning techniques in order to bring this capsule to market. It is entirely manufactured in the USA in our own machine shop and assembly facility.
