Very, very good for strings

Condenser mic with cylindrical format and small capsule.


I have some other mics of the same type, I use this mainly for strings (folk guitar, violin). Compared to the Oktava MK012, it is much more brilliant and it's a mic whose setting is not so critical, it doesn't detune much. An example? The guitar (a Taylor C-414) here was recorded with a C451e - https://fr.audiofanzine.com/folk/compos/a.play,t.13658.html
