C451B Overview

Discover the AKG C451 B, a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the same acclaimed acoustical behavior as its legendary predecessor, the C451 EB + CK1 capsule, which debuted in 1969 as a bestseller. With its airy sound and high overload limit, the C451 B carries on the success story of this legend with improved engineering details. Its roadworthy design, handcrafted capsule, and low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even in the toughest conditions. Elevate your recordings with the AKG C451 B for outstanding performance and reliability.

Keep in mind the max SPL of 155db, we would suggest against using this on a snare or other louder sources. We've seen great results on hi hats, as overheads, as audience mics, and other acoustic instruments.
