Responding to growing demand AKG decided to make the C 451 B with the same acoustic performance as the popular original C 451 EB + CK 1 with dramatically improved specifications. Using an extremely light diaphragm the new C 451 B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. Other features include an all-metal body for excellent protection from RF interference and high reliability for excellent results under almost all conditions.
The C 451 B is an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums instruments with a percussive sound acoustic guitar or for overhead miking.
