SCHOEPS CMC4/MK41 COLETTE SERIES CARDIOID CONDENSER MICROPHONE
Sorry, this item is out of stock
Works perfectly, very good cosmetic condition
Late 70s - early 80s vintage
The CMC4 is the base unit for this mic. It's the forerunner of the CMC5 and CMC6 in the Colette Series. It requires 12V 'T-Power', not phantom power. To use this, you'll need either a power source or a phantom power adapter.
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
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).
The response 90° off-axis is -10 dB. The polar diagram is consistent at all frequencies, which means that regardless of its direction of origin, sound will be picked up free of unwanted coloration. For this reason the supercardioid is the preferred type of microphone for dialog recording in film and video sound, particularly indoors.
From low to midrange frequencies, the directionality of a supercardioid is comparable to that of a “shotgun” microphone.
