Get The Instrument Microphone With Minimal Interference - The AKG C451B Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Responding to growing demand, AKG decided to make the AKG C 451 B Microphone 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 AKG C 451 B Microphone is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. Other AKG Mic features include an all-metal body for excellent protection from RF interference and high reliability for excellent results under almost all conditions.

The AKG C 451 B Microphone 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.
