Precise artistic work deserves precise artistic craftsmanship. A classic by now, the CMS Series CK 1 capsule from AKG was a best seller from the moment it was launched in 1969. Comprising a range of interchangeable capsules and preamps as well as then innovative, dedicated accessories, the CMS Series from AKG quickly became a legend. It was discontinued in 1993. Responding to growing demand from recording engineers, AKG decided to produce the C 451 B with identical acoustical behaviour of the popular original C 451 EB + CK 1 microphone again, with dramatically improved specifications and outstanding price/ performance. The capsule of the new version is fixed permanently to the preamp to eliminate the mechanical problems of the screw joint. Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C 451 B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. An all-metal body provides excellent protection from RF interference and the microphone is rugged enough to give excellent results even under very harsh conditions. The C 451 B is an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums, overhead miking, or other instruments with a percussive sound. The airy sound, high overload limit of the capsule and electronic circuitry, and improved engineering details of the C 451 B are a solid foundation for creating another legend. Features: Identical acoustics of the legendary CK 1. Rugged construction. Ruler-flat on-axis frequency response. Precise, nearly frequency independent cardioid. Extremely accurate signal transfer. Transformerless output stage for minimum distortion at low frequencies. Protected against electrostatic and magnetic interference. Selectable 10-dB and 20-dB preattenuation pads. Switchable highpass filter (75 Hz or 150 Hz, 12dB/octave). Operates on phantom power to DIN/IEC between 12 V and 48 V. Complete with SA 40 stand adapter and W 90 windscreen. Each microphone comes with its own individual frequency response plot. Specifications: Polar pattern: Cardioid Frequency range: 20 to 20,000 Hz Sensitivity: 9 mV/Pa (-41 dBV) Max. SPL: 135/145/155 dB (0/-10/-20 dB) (k=0,5%) Equivalent noise level (CCIR 468-3): 29 dB Equivalent noise level: 18 dB-A Signal/noise ratio (A-weighted): 76 dB Preattenuation pad: 0 dB, 10 dB, 20 dB selectable Bass filter: Flat, 12 dB/octave at 75 or 150 Hz, selectable Impedance: <200 ohms Recommended load impedance: >1000 ohms Supply voltage: 9 to 52 V phantom power to DIN 45596 Current consumption: <2 mA Connector: 3-pin XLR Finish: Satin nickel plated Dimensions: 19 dia. x 160 mm / 0.75 dia. x 6.3 in.
