Small-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone

Overview

ONE FOR THE ROAD
for drums, percussion, acoustic guitar and strings

The C451B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the identical acoustical behavior of its predecessor, the legendary C451EB + CK1 capsule, which was a bestseller right from the start in 1969.

With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the C451B continues the success story of this legend. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise preamp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions.

Features

  • Sound of the legendary C451EB + CK1 capsule from 1969 delivers stunning sound quality with maximum accuracy
  • Established tour sound standard since the 1980s for excellent sound quality even under harsh on-stage conditions
  • Impressive sound pressure level capability of 155dB SPL allows close-miking of high-energy sound sources without distortion
  • Highly effective high-pass filter with 12dB/octave prevents low-end distortion caused by rumble or wind noise
  • Transformerless preamp and surface mount technology provides extremely low distortion, highest reliability and less weight
