AKG C451B Mic clip options
« on: September 22, 2019, 01:53:50 pm »

Got a great deal on a pair of matched C451B, but without clips.


What's a decent quality mic clip for these that isn't the $22 AKG wants for the original? Something rubbery but holds them nice and firm.


Thanks!

Clips for Shure SM81s always worked for me when I had 451s

Beyer make a range of flexible mike clips that work well for the SDCs. And they are very tough!

The Windtech MC-12 fits them well.

The best mic clips I have found are also the least expensive. They are K&M and there are four sizes. They retail for around $5
This model fits my Crown CM700 and Sennheiser e609. 17-21mm diameter

This model fits my Crown CM700...
Good to know!

As an aside: have you used those mics for choirs? They’re my personal favorite...I always get more GBF with them.

Looks like a clone of the original!
How's the quality of that clip?

Not sure if that question is for me?
I typically use those little tiny ones that hang from a wire. All the manufacturers make them...

It's a hard rubber clip mounted to a hard plastic base with metal threaded 5/8" insert. Mine have held up quite well over the years.

Second the K&M clip recommendation. They're good solid clips, and I've gradually been using them as replacements when more expensive clips go missing.

Ah, sorry, it was for Mr. Lunceford.

I have not tried the CM700 on choirs, although I rarely have to mic large groups of singers. It is good to know, in case that need arises. I have 8 CM700 mics but I have pretty much put them into retirement since I discovered the Beyerdynamic M201TG. 
I bought a pair of the M201TG and started moving them around and trying them on many different instruments. I ended buying 10 of them, replacing the Crown, EV NDYMs, and SM57s.

As a side note, I purchased an Earthworks Vocal mic and it came with a K&M mic clip, with an Earthworks sticker covering the K&M logo.

K&M clips are both reasonably priced and work well at 20% of the price of an SA30 saddle.
