  • AKG C451B Condenser Mic, based on the classic CMS Series CK 1 capsule.
  • An excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums, overhead miking, or other instruments with a percussive sound.
  • The airy sound, high overload limit of the capsule and electronic circuitry, and improved engineering details of the C451B are a solid foundation for creating another legend.
  • The capsule of the new version is fixed permanently to the preamp to eliminate the mechanical problems of the screw joint.
  • Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C451B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise.
  • An all-metal body provides excellent protection from RF interference and the microphone is rugged enough to give excellent results even under very harsh conditions.

AKG C451B Condenser Mic


A classic by now, the CMS Series CK 1 capsule from AKG was a best seller from the moment it was launched in 1969. Comprising a range of interchangeable capsules and preamps as well as then innovative, dedicated accessories, the CMS Series from AKG quickly became a legend. It was discontinued in 1993.

 

Responding to growing demand from recording engineers, AKG decided to produce the C451B with identical acoustical behaviour of the popular original C 451 EB + CK 1 microphone again, with dramatically improved specifications and outstanding price/performance.

 

The capsule of the new version is fixed permanently to the preamp to eliminate the mechanical problems of the screw joint. Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C451B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. An all-metal body provides excellent protection from RF interference and the microphone is rugged enough to give excellent results even under very harsh conditions.

 

The C451B is an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums, overhead miking, or other instruments with a percussive sound. The airy sound, high overload limit of the capsule and electronic circuitry, and improved engineering details of the C451B are a solid foundation for creating another legend.
