U-FLYstudio's review

By U-FLYstudio, 15/12/2003
Small condenser microphone with cardio attnuateur -10 and 20 dB high pass filter 75 and 150 Hz
20-20Khz bandwidth
Repetition of the C 451 EB with CK1 capsule cardio, here we can not change the capsule.


SPECIFICATIONS mic well, trs loaded at the top of the spectrum can not say that gnre a full, warm color that plutt nervous because m I so often talk about brands intelligibility to justify such curves frequency drives, AC Reduces here much scope, typical 80's overhead, a micro-remains interesting because it offers features a commme SPL max rev high, a good output level, a fairly strait directivity sensitivity but relatively pronounced.
- I do not think you can buy a pair of 451 b as main couple, everything, in this case you will not wear a pair of hsiter KSM 137 or 141.
- It's a pair to have in the studio, the 451 is the same trs known for decades, and immediately brings color your decision.

In short if you buy a lot of money to buy something else!
it lacks a bit of body and richness.

Pierre musy's review

By Pierre musy, 01/08/2003
You can still record with the microphone. It is of claret and a great precision and performs as well on almost all types of voice, the acoustic guitars, also on lctriques as reinforcements for the brightness of the rope on wind instruments that do not too dgagent sound pressure (capsule fragile), on strings, a snare and also overhead on a battery. In conclusion, the 451 (the BC-451-EB) are not making any microphones microphones at a discount due to their high quality trs.


I use this mic for over 17 years and I achte whenever I get the chance. I'm in love with its tone and finesse. Sometimes it is very practical for example when my U 87 is a little soft ... As you can see, my 451 battery never leaves me when I'm recording.
PS: Shoeps, Sennheiser and Neumann microphones are also good ...

On certain voice can be magic, but I always couple with a 2nd microphone to enhance the bass, and it's perfect.
