From Our Research Team:
A Classic AKG Condenser Mic Reborn!!Celebrating 65 years of AKG ingenuity, the C 451 B 65th Anniversary Edition small-diaphragm condenser microphone brings back one of the most-used studio mics of all time. AKG's C 451 was one of the all-time great studio condenser microphones. Though the original C 451 mic ended production many years ago, it's still an extremely popular staple in studios all over the world. The enduring popularity of the C 451 inspired AKG to bring this mic back in the C 451 B 65th Anniversary Edition.
AKG C 451 B 65th Anniversary Edition Condenser Microphone at a Glance:
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 C 451 B 65th Anniversary Edition is incredibly precise and accurate. AKG made the C451B with dramatically improved specifications. Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C451B 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 highpass filter
The C 451 B 65th Anniversary Edition's capsule is permanently fixed to the preamp to increase overall stability under mechanical stress. It includes a switchable attenuation pad to increase the C 451 B's SPL capability. A switchable highpass 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.
