"IT WAS WORTH WAITING FOR"
Precise artistic work deserves precise artistic craftsmanship.

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 C 451 B 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 C 451 B 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. Includes stereo pair,2- SA 40 mic clips, aluminum carry case, W 90 windscreen, and stereo mic bar.

The C 451 B 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 C 451 B are a solid foundation for creating another legend.

Main features:

  1. Identical acoustics of the legendary CK 1.
  2. Rugged construction.
  3. Ruler-flat on-axis frequency response.
  4. Precise, nearly frequency independent cardioid.
  5. Extremely accurate signal transfer.
  6. Transformerless output stage for minimum distortion at low frequencies.
  7. Protected against electrostatic and magnetic interference.
  8. Selectable 10-dB and 20-dB preattenuation pads.
  9. Switchable highpass filter (75 Hz or 150 Hz, 12dB/octave).
  10. Operates on phantom power to DIN/IEC between 12 V and 48 V.
  11. Complete with SA 40 stand adapter and W 90 windscreen. Each microphone comes with its own individual frequency response plot.

PERFECT TWINS

for stereo recording of any acoustic instruments in studio and on stage

The C451 B is a reference small-diaphragm condenser microphone. With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the C451 B continues the success story of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise pre-amp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions. Selected from thousands of individual microphones, both microphones of the matched pair show a maximum variance of 1 dB at the frequency response and have identical sensitivity.

The C451 B Matched Pair Stereo Set Package includes:

2 x C451

2 x Stand adapter

2 x Windscreen

1 x Stereo mounting bar

Aluminum carrying case
