Up for consideration is a vintage AKG C451E condenser mic -- body only. These are great, classic studio mics for acoustic instruments, and also are great for remote location recording. This is C451 serial # 553266, and has has been tested and sounds fantastic. New, these C451 mics are selling for $499 (and are not nearly as good), so here is a great opportunity to own a much better-sounding, vintage C451E.

CLASSIC VINTAGE SOUND
C451E's have a great vintage character and tone that imparts a smoothness and musicality to your tracks. The C451E body circuit is very desireable since it has no extra circuitry for roll-off and pad to degrade the signal. The mic is in good condition, and sounds great. Also a previous owner written some kind of light ID on the mic body, but it is relatively unobtrusive. This is a very good example of the vintage C451E body, so here is a great opportunity to add an extra mic body for your AKG CMS collection.
