The AKG 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 C451 B. Sonically identical to the original, which featured the much-acclaimed CK-1 capsule, the new C451 B is incredibly precise and accurate. One of its most common applications is for drum overheads, and many engineers say there's nothing quite like it for miking cymbals - the metallic "crash" comes through brilliantly.

The capsule is permanently fixed to the preamp to increase overall stability under mechanical stress. It includes a switchable preattenuation pad to increase the mic's SPL capability. A switchable highpass filter at 75 Hz or 150 Hz prevents low-end distortion, while the C451B's all metal body provides excellent protection from RF interference. This microphone makes a great addition to any professional studio or recording set-up.

With its airy sound, high overload limit of 155 dB SPL 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.
