AKG C451 B Condenser Microphone
Reference small-diaphragm condenser microphone
Integrated cardioid condenser microphone with the same acoustic performance as the popular original C451EB + CK1 but with dramatically improved specifications. All metal body with excellent RF rejection and almost totally insensitive to handling noise. Ideal for acurately capturing drums and percussion and for overhead micing.
The C451 B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the identical acoustical behavior of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule, which was a bestseller right from the start in 1969.
With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the C451 B continues the success story of this legend. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions.
