This is the MK 41 supercardioid capsule stereo pair version.

SCHOEPS now offers pairs of our best-selling ”Colette”-series microphones in sets. Each wooden case contains two complete microphones with selected, matched capsules, SG 20 stand adapters, B 5 D windscreens and in most cases, CMC 6 analog microphone amplifiers.

The part of each stand adapter that holds the microphone is made of soft plastic, while the base is metal. The foam windscreens have an inner construction which makes them considerably more effective than typical windscreens of their size, while their surface treatment lends them a ”high-class” appearance.

Included in this package

  • (2) CMC 6U microphone bodies
  • (2) MK 41 Supercardioid Capsules
  • (2) B5D Windscreens
  • (2) SG 20 Stand Adapters
  • Wooden Box

MK 41 Capsule Info

The MK 41 is strongly directional. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated even more than with a cardioid. The pickup is “drier” and less susceptible to acoustic feedback than any other SCHOEPS capsule type (a loudspeaker should not be located directly along the rear axis of the microphone, however).

Features

  • supercardioid with highly consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • for music and speech
  • high directivity, comparable to that of a short “shotgun“ microphone up through midrange frequencies
  • often preferred for use in film sound recording and as a spot microphone in orchestras

CMC 6U Amplifier Body Info

The capsules of condenser microphones (the only type which SCHOEPS manufactures) can't be connected directly to microphone cables or inputs; a microphone amplifier is required in between. Thus a complete microphone of the Colette series comprises any of the twenty available types of capsules combined with an amplifier.

The CMC 6 Ug is designed for standard 48- and 12-Volt phantom powering. Its circuitry recognizes the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Its performance characteristics remain essentially the same either way; mainly, the difference is that the current drawn at 12 Volts is greater than at 48 Volts. However, the 12-Volt mode consumes less power and might be preferred for battery-powered recording.

The microphone amplifier provides the electrostatic charge which the capsule requires in order to produce a signal. Since only a miniscule amount of current is contained in this signal, amplification of the current is required. To avoid interference to the signal on the way from the microphone to the input of the mixer or preamp, the signal is conveyed at low impedance and in balanced form. The CMC 6 Ug amplifier offers a symmetrical, transformerless, direct-coupled Class A output stage with low impedance, low distortion, and high freedom from interference.

Please note: The two amplifiers in a stereo pair of microphones should be of the same type.

Features

  • flat frequency response
  • extremely low noise and distortion
  • balanced, very low-impedance output
  • can be used with very long cables
  • well-protected against RFI
  • for use with 12- or 48-Volt phantom powering
