AKG 460 B Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with CK 61-ULS Capsule
The C 460 B was a transformer-coupled preamp from AKG’s “Condenser Modular Series” (CMS).
The C 460 B preamp could be used with any of AKG’s wide variety of detachable capsules and inline pads to provide a microphone suitable for a wide variety of applications in the studio.
The mic has extremely low self-noise for a small-diaphragm mic, at 14dBA, and is advertised as having “absolute linearity of all important parameters such as frequency response, directivity factor, electrical transfer characteristics.”
The CK 61-ULS Cardioid capsule was described as having a 15mm active diaphragm, and sensitivity of 8mV/Pa.
A 4-position switch on the mic body enables the selection of four operational modes:
- No pad/filter.
- HPF: -12dB/octave @ 70Hz
- HPF: -12dB/octave @ 150Hz
