Description

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.

Features:

  • 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

The Classic Shimmer of a 451

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!!
