Schoeps CMC 62H Stereo Set w/ 2x CMC6 Preamps & 2x MK 2H Capsules
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.
Schoeps CMC 6 Ug Microphone Amplifier
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.
- 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
Schoeps MK 2H Universal Onmidirectional Capsule
If this microphone capsule is used indoors at medium recording distances - i.e. where direct sound energy is similar in amount to reflected sound energy - its overall response will be linear. Its extended frequency response and low noise make it appropriate for the most demanding applications.
The sound inlet of the MK 2H is narrower than that of our other pressure transducers, causing a slight, purely acoustic response elevation above 6 kHz. This reduces the high frequency loss for diffuse sound, thus helping to preserve natural sound quality.
- Omnidirectional pattern
- Mild high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at medium recording distance
- Often chosen for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and “Decca Tree” arrangements
