AKG C 4500 B-BC – No Longer Available

Large diaphragm low-proximity effect studio microphone
MFR# 2820X00120

Product Description

The AKG C 4500 B-BC meets the strictest requirements of digital audio with its ultra-low 8 dB-A self-noise and 145 / 165 dB maximum SPL capability.  Its end-address format and its unique acoustical design allow the microphone to be used comfortably for on-air broadcast work and for easy positioning in front of instruments such as bass drum, upright bass, baritone saxophone, guitar amps and other high-output sources.  Its patented internal three-stage filter and very low up-close bass boost allow it to be positioned close to the source to accurately capture every nuance of the sound.

With its superior audio performance, high SPL capability, low proximity effect and insensitivity to RF and electro-magnetic interference, the C4500 B-BC is the perfect tool for broadcast and recording studios.  Excellent sound, useful standard accessories and outstanding price/performance makes this large-diaphragm microphone a necessity for every studio.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
