Quick akg 451b question

Hi i recently bought an akg 451e (with ck1 capsule) on ebay which is great but i can't find another 451e for love or money to make a matched pair out of it. Would a 451b be a good choice to match it with despite circuitry differences? (i'm thinking of using them as drum overheads)

I'm also not bothered that i wont be able to change the capsules on the 451b.

I would say hold out to find another old one. The new ones do not sound the same to me. The 451b is crazy bright sounding compared.
