AKG is celebrating 65 years of excellence with the C451 65th Anniversary Edition condenser microphone. The C451 Anniversary Edition embodies sound from the Legendary C451 EB with the CK1 capsule, delivering stunning quality and precision. It combines attractive design and high-quality “TITAN-Look” finish with stunning sound quality. Since its introduction in 1969, the C451 has been continuously improved and has demonstrated its durability under the harshest onstage environments. The C451 65th Anniversary Edition’s transformerless preamp enables high sound pressure capability, allowing for close miking of high-energy sound sources up to 155 dB SPL without distortion.
The C451 65th Anniversary Edition's reference small-diaphragm is an excellent tool for capturing the smallest details of any instrument due to its lightweight membrane and sophisticated acoustic design, which makes it the perfect choice for accurately capturing drums, percussion, acoustic guitar and overhead miking. This valuable limited edition is handcrafted in Vienna, Austria with highest attention to detail.
