The C451B/ST Matched Pair Stereo Set from AKG consists of two C451 B Microphones, two stand adapters, two windscreens, one stereo mounting bar, and an aluminum carrying case. The stereo pair of microphones feature matched elements, including identical frequency response, signal to noise ratio, dynamic range, sensitivity, and SPL. These matched elements provide maximum results for stereo miking instruments, live performances, ambiance, and sound effects. Additionally, the included H50 stereo mounting bar is designed for miking live performances and ambiance.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
The 451B attenuates around the off-axis (side) sections of the microphone, resulting in a directional pick up pattern.
Switchable Pad
Switchable 10 dB and 20 dB pads increase the microphone's SPL capability when close-miking high-energy sound sources or driving preamps and mixers with limited headroom.
Switchable Highpass Filters
Switchable highpass filters (75 Hz or 150 Hz, 12 dB/octave) accentuate mid- and high-end presence by minimizing unnecessary low-end frequencies.
Fixed Capsule
The 451B features a fixed capsule, eliminating the mechanical problems of screw on capsules.
Flat Frequency Response
A ruler-flat on-axis frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 KHz (±1.5 dB) provides accurate recordings without added coloration.

    Comments about AKG C451B/ST Matched Pair Stereo Set:

    The 451B/ST may cost a bit more but they are worth the sound they capture.

    I use the 451's for mobile and studio work, recording various instruments & vocals.

    1) Silky, Smooth Sound to melt for.
    2) Little to "no Eq" needed (Fantastic!!!).
    3) Sounds great on many instruments.
    4) Makes mixing time pleasant (I love it!).
    5) Leaves me more time to create.

    Besides the silky highs, these little microphones Pick up very impresive smooth low frequencies; which is what I was looking for in a "small diaphram" mic set.

    Another mic company offers a match pair set (which are great and are an awesome value) but, are just shy from having the 451 sound.

    The 451B/ST microphones makes recording easier and more enjoyable.

    You would have to hear other small diaphram microphones to appreciate the sound of the 451's.
