    Can someone please tell me about this mic? I have heard of them, but cannot find any information at all about them.

    Are you sure about the name/number?

    To the best of my recollection there's no AKG 481...

    But there is a 480

    I found out it is a 480 with a #1 head or something like that?

    There's the AKC C451 and the Shure SM81, both are credible small diaphram condensor mics.
     
  6. The 451 is a condenser mic with a variety of capsules that can be swapped out. The CK1 is the cardioid capsule.
