AKG C480B-CB-61

The AKG C480B-CB-61 is a Modular Microphone Consisting Of The C480B Preamplifier and the CK61 Capsule. This set offers you excellent audio quality and maximum flexibility. The electronic circuitry of the C480 B comes with a transformerless output stage and assures completely linear transfer characteristics across the entire frequency range, while achieving self-noise figures close to the theoretical minimum.

The CK61 capsule is characterized by a ruler-flat frequency response and an unmatchable consistent cardioid polar pattern. It is the ideal choice for critical recording and live-sound applications where consistent suppression of off-axis sound is an important requirement. The CK61 ULS is widely used in broadcast and recording studios as well as on stages worldwide.
