AKG 451/460/480 with BLUE B6 capsule questions

AKG 451 BLUE lollipop capsule questions

Hey all (my first post) thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond, it's a great site!

I've been looking into the combination of the AKG pencil mics 451 and the BLUE mic capsules

I've worked out the bit I would need, a special adapter to allow the new Blue capsules to fit on a 451 so my question to anyone else who has a 451/blue mic is what do you think of the combination? I also have an original U87 and wonder if the B6 or B7 with the 451 would sound better than the U87 for vocals (and acoustic guitar) ?

Any thoughts?

Many thanks, simon

Bump on this 5.5 year old thread… Do the new newer Blue bottle caps work with the older AKG 460 mics?
