Used for the ride cymbals on "Get On Your Boots", as stated by producer Declan Gaffney. > "Most of 'Get On Your Boots' was recorded in Dublin by Richard Rainey, and the basic backing tracks were done live, by the whole band together. There was an [Electro-Voice] RE20 inside the bass drum, with an SE Electronics Titan on the outside, a [Shure] 57 underneath the snare, and Richard had his own Heil mic on top, which he alternated with a Beyer M201; the toms were [Sennheiser] 421, overheads Coles 4038; ride cymbal was sometimes a 57, sometimes a [AKG] 451. Everything went through the Neve 1091 or 1093 mic pres." Although the model is unspecified, mention of an EB in [this article about the Joshua Tree Tour 2017](http://fohonline.com/archives/january-2018/top-tours-of-2017-u2/) suggests it is that one.more
This mic is the vintage version of C 451 B small-diaphragm condenser and yes it sounds even better. Year: 70th. It's a classic used a lot on overheads or as a spot mic for cymbals. Also fantastic on acoustic instruments. It is crips, clear, open and handy for placement. It's small in size, versatile, well built and has few capsules you can use with the same pre-amp. Best known are CK1 and CK2 (omni). Comes in black or silver.
