AKG C451B Overview

  • 1Description

The 65th Anniversary Edition C451 B Reference Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from AKG is suitable for use with drums, percussion, acoustic guitar, and strings. It has the identical acoustical behavior of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB microphone with CK1 capsule. This microphone offers airy sound, high overload limit, and improved engineering details. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions. This microphone comes with the W90 windscreen, the SA60 stand adapter, and a microphone bag. The included windscreen can also be used with AKG Blue Line CK91/92/93/94 capsules. The included stand adapter is for use with straight-shaft microphones.

Recreates the sound of the legendary C451 EB microphone with CK1 capsule from 1969, delivering enhanced sound quality with maximum accuracy
Established tour sound standard since the 1980s for high-quality sound even under harsh on-stage conditions
Impressive sound pressure level capability of 155 dB SPL allows close-miking of high-energy sound sources without distortion
Highly effective high-pass filter with 12 dB/octave prevents low-end distortion caused by rumble or wind noise
Transformerless preamp and surface mount technology provides low distortion, high reliability, and low weight
