The AKG C 452 EB is a small diaphragm condenser microphone that is very similar to the 451 model.  I'm not exactly sure what the differences are, but I do know that they are near identical models.  The mic has a cardioid pick up pattern and is a microphone that is best suited for the studio.


While I've only used the AKG C 452 EB a small number of times, I've used it enough to know that I enjoy using it to record certain instruments a great deal.  I've also used the 451 and they pretty much have the same sound, which is one that is vibrant and great for a number of applications.  I've only had the chance to use the 452 EB on acoustic guitar, which is probably the application that this is best suited for.  I have used during a live session in the studio and found that it worked great not only in terms of tone, but also for isolating the signal.  While I haven't used the 452 in particular for anything else, I know from the 451 that it should work in a variety of situations.  AKG is one of the best when it comes to manufacturing mics that sound great and won't break the bank, and the C 452 EB definitely fits in well.  While this mic is pretty rare and isn't an easy find, if you can find one I don't think that it will cost all that much.  Using the 451 is overall a good gauge to learn more about the 452 EB, as I really think that the two are interchangeable.  Besides the 451, I'd compare this to a few of the other AKG mics that look like this one, as they all have a similar sound and price tag.  All in all, the AKG C 452 EB is definitely a quality small diaphragm condenser microphone.
