More robust amplifier for B6 capsule?

I have one of the Red B6 (R6?) capsules that I bought to attach to my 451. It works fine but I'm feeling like I could be getting more out of this capsule--more depth, less hash. Has anyone found anything better to attach this capsule to?

I have retubed my bottle mic with a Telefunken tube, and found the B6 to sound better. Also sounds good with my 451. I did not like it with the original Bottle tube.

Those work well on AKG 460 and 480 bodies if you use the reduction adaptor.

Thanks Jim. Do those 460s have a more powerful amp than the 451s? The 451s just seem to crap out, I don't know if it's distortion or lack of headroom or what.

Anyone else?

Here for the gear
You could try to find a C28A/B or a C60...
Not on the cheap though!
