Small-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Selectable Pad and High-pass Filter.
Sonically identical to the classic C 451 with improved design, with increased stability and switchable highpass filter.
Ideal for overhead drum miking and capturing rich transients, particularly the brilliance of the crash. Also excellent for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as instruments with a percussive sound, acoustic guitar, or for overhead miking.
