The AKG C451B/ST Condenser Microphones are the perfect choice for any application where sounds, particularly their transient content, need to be captured with maximum accuracy. This matched pair features hand-crafted fixed capsules and low-noise preamp electronics for a bright and detailed sound.

The AKG C451B/ST Condenser Microphones are perfect twins of the reference small-diaphragm condenser microphone. With its airy sound, high overload limit and improved engineering details, the AKG C451 B continues the success story of its predecessor, the legendary C451 EB + CK1 capsule. The roadworthy design around the handcrafted capsule and the low-noise pre-amp electronics ensure impressive results even under very harsh conditions. Selected from thousands of individual microphones, both microphones of the matched pair show a maximum variance of 1 dB at the frequency response and have identical sensitivity.

    Great Set-Even If You Only Need the One Mic!!!
    Brian Gwinner

    I own this stereo pair. I use them as overheads for drums, but mostly find myself using it in the studio for the neck mic on an acoustic guitar or hi-hat. I've used this mostly in applications that don't really require a stereo set, but it's nice to know if I do, L and R with be linear in terms stereo frequency response between themselves. They have an air about them that works well with the AKG 414 XLS. They come with a stereo bar inside the case, which is great as that it something you may forget when you really need one.
