A Classic AKG Condenser Mic Reborn!! AKG's C451 was one of the all-time great studio condenser microphones. Though the original C451 mic ended production many years ago, it's still an extremely popular staple in studios all over the world. The enduring popularity of the C451 inspired AKG to bring this mic back in the C 451 B.

AKG C 451 B Condenser Microphone at a Glance:

Ideal for overhead drum miking and capturing rich transients

Sonically identical to the classic C 451 with improved design

Increased stability and switchable high-pass filter

Ideal for overhead drum miking and capturing rich transients One of the C 451 B's most common applications is for drum overheads, and many engineers say there's nothing quite like it for miking cymbals - the metallic "crash" and brilliance come through perfectly. The C 451 B is also an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as instruments with a percussive sound, acoustic guitar, or for overhead miking.

Sonically identical to the classic C 451 with improved design Sonically identical to the original, which featured the much-acclaimed CK-1 cardioid capsule, the new C 451 B is incredibly precise and accurate. AKG made the C 451 B with dramatically improved specifications. Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C 451 B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. Other features include an all-metal body for excellent protection from RF interference and high reliability for excellent results under almost all conditions.

Increased stability selectable pad and high-pass filter The C 451 B capsule is permanently fixed to the preamp to increase overall stability under mechanical stress. It includes a switchable preattenuation pad to increase the C 451 B's SPL capability. A switchable high-pass filter at 75Hz or 150Hz prevents low-end distortion. The AKG C 451 B microphone makes a great addition to any professional studio or recording setup.
