A good microphone
Anonymous 07.02.2015
I've used this mic for over two years now and I've been very pleased with it. I think it's a good mic for many things, but I've used it mostly for acoustic guitar, hi-hat and actually vocals. First i was a bit surprised how well it worked on vocals, but now i use it quite frequently. If you have a LDC microphone i would probalby use that for vocals, but if you don't own many microphones this is a good all arounder in my opinion. The sound is clear and open, without being harsh.

The quailty is really good and even the switches seem to be well made. The switches on the mic are a good addition, but i usually have mine at no cut (0 dB) and the low cut at 75Hz. This is well suited for the things that i record.

Overall this is a really good microphone.

If you can not work with this mic, you can not work with any mic

Very universal professional microphone. From Rock to Opera.
Recording and Live.
Not as linear as C480 but still very usable in every situation. Great build quality. Nowdays they are made in Hungary but I can not tell the difference from those who made in Austria. If you can not work with this mic, you can not work with any mic.

The apex of versatility

Been using these mics for years and it's hard to describe in a few words how amazing they are. Everything from cymbals, strings, percussion up to the choir or even orchestra. Willing to invest in dozens more to expand my PA rent.

I bought a pair of AKG C 451 B's with the aim to record acoustic guitar. I needed a microphone that has character as well as being precise and warm without taking too much space in the overall soundscape - which I find that many condenser mics tend to do in layered productions. For that purpose I'd say, this is a good microphone at a very reasonable price. I recommend it.
