AKG C 451 B Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
Responding to growing demand, AKG decided to make the C 451 B with the same acoustic performance as the popular original C 451 EB + CK 1, 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.
The AKG C 451 B is an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums, instruments with a percussive sound, acoustic guitar, or for overhead miking.
- Identical acoustics to legendary CK 1
- Precise, nearly frequency independent cardioid
- Extremely accurate signal transfer and ruler-flat on-axis frequency response
- Also available as a matched stereo pair

That Stuart Copeland shimmery Hi Hat sound was what first came to mind when I first tried my new 451 in a session, I had been searching for that sound for years with other condensors, but this is the one! On acoustic guitars it brought a nice tone and openess as well!! Also a secret weapon on 4x12 cabinets :) A classic for any studio!!
