I recently found a pair of 451 -20db pads while moving...i sold the mics a couple of years ago and cannot remember if they were 451b or 451eb...just that were older models...these -20 pads were with them but were misplaced in a nice comfortable storage...my question is does anyone have a clue to their worth...my assumption is that they work perfect as they did before...any help would be appreciated as I have no use for them now...

Jan 05, 2011 10:47 pm Anywhere between $250.00 to $550.00.
Great mics! We have about 10 of them where I work at.

I only have the pads, are w estill talkin 250 to 550? plus anyway to find out exactly what model they go with and are they interchangeable on all 451 models? Sorry lots of ?'s
Jan 05, 2011 11:05 pm Without the capsules, they maybe only worth about $200.00.
The 451 series uses the CK 1 capsule. And I think that you can still find them on Ebay.
Here is a link to the PDF of the 451. Page 12 starts the English portion.
Jan 07, 2011 03:32 pm I think muddyguy is saying that he has a couple -20dB inline pads. If the pads are generic -20 dB pads, then I'd guess they're worth between 20 and 30 dollars. If that 451 series has special inline pads that would change things but generic -20 dB inline pads aren't anything too valuable are they? I could be wrong.

Here's the family of products I'm thinking you may have:
Jan 10, 2011 04:33 pm Oops. Ignorance strikes again! What's the benefit of having the 451 specific pad vs a generic XLR->XLR inline pad?

By the pad being built in to the mic, you don't have this huge thing hanging on the mic stand, or off of the back of the board.
This makes it safer to use as well. Your not putting all of the extra weight or strain on the mic or back of the board.
Jan 16, 2011 10:13 pm Hey ya'll...i appreciate the help...unfortunately what I have doesn't look like any of those...i'm planning on posting a link to a pic of what I have...I believe it is AKG and came with the mic set I had...Stay tuned and Gracias...
Feb 10, 2011 10:55 pm Finally have some pics of the pads...don't know how to show them here, but they are in my photo gallery on my profile here...just click on my name...any help is very appreciated...Thnx, Dave
Feb 10, 2011 11:03 pm I'm going to have to look around a little on this one. I didn't even know that they made an inline pad for the 451 line. I'm use to just seeing a switch on the mic body.
