Product Description

  • Sound of the legendary C451 EB + 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

The C451 B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the identical acoustical behaviour of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule, which was a bestseller right from the start in 1969.

With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the C451 B 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.
