I've been getting into post production stuff lately, and found myself needing a shotgun mic. I really haven't try any shotgun besides the Sennheiser MKH 70 for a project when i was in school.
Im in the process of getting a pair of AKG 451 EB + CK1 for Drum' OH and acoustic instruments...
who has used it? how can you compare it to other pencil condensers? anything that you particularly like about it? anything you dislike about it?
i dont know much about them; a pair showed up on craigslist for $200/each.
Anyone on this forum own AKG 451E or EB? I'm having a very strange problem and I can't figure out what's going on. I'm occasionally hired to do 2 track recordings of recitals and small local bands, and when I'm not multitracking I sometimes hit the club and throw up a couple of mics to record...
Well I'm a little aggravated this morning. I've been eyeing the Shure donut mounts for a couple of weeks now and finally picked up a pair. Turns out the diameter of the 451 is too small for the Shure mount!
Anyone else have any ideas on how to shockmount a 451? I'd prefer not to...
My mic closet as it stands contains : AKG Solidtube, SHURE KSM32, AKG C3000b, AKG C1000s (2), Sennheiser 421 (3), SHURE SM57 (2), AKG D112, EV RE20.
I believe that the weakest link(s) in my microphone suite are the two AKG C1000s (I can almost hear the seasoned pros sitting around and one...
Which should I get: The old C451 + CK1 or the new AKG C451B ? I am aware that the new model has a fixed capsule and is supposed to have improved specs (noise, max SPL). How do they compare sound-wise ?
Thx for any input,
Hi folks, new guy here: jumped over from the Digidesign User Conference.
Questions regarding these mics, which I have a few ancient examples of.
Does anyone know if the ribbon in a 4038 goes slack with time? The two I have must be over 30 years old, and though they still sound good, there's a...
AKG is going to make a new version of the 451. No teeny threads on the capsule. I think they will be non-removable capsules, cardioid only (BOO).
The electronics are descended from the AKG Blue Line, and there will be 2 low cuts, and a 2 position attenuator, unlike the screw-in capacitive pads...
I am looking for an AKG C-451EB microphone "body", ie the preamplifier
part of the microphone, and that without the capsules. AFAIK they are
out of production, so where could one obtain such a thing?
I am interested in up to four of them and they don't even have to be
This might be a little simplistic as it doesn't encompass design/capsule/electronics so i'm postin' it here instead of SP's but if you can help SP that's cool as well!
I bought some AKG 451's and on my first outting with em i noticed that the mic cord never "clicked." I tried using a...
