C451B


ONE FOR THE ROAD



  • For drums, percussion, acoustic guitar and strings

  • The C451 B is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with the identical acoustical behavior 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.
