Schoeps CMC6+MK41 Supercardioid with B-Stock Rycote WS3 Modular Kit
This Bundle Includes:
- Schoeps MK 41 Series Cardioid Capsule
- Schoeps CMC 6 Ug Microphone Amplifier (Standard)
- Rycote Modular Windshield Kit 3 - B-Stock
Combining the Schoeps MK 41 Capsule with the CMC 6 Ug Preamp to create a super high quality microphone setup. Pair that with the industry standard Rycote Windshield Kit 3 for an almost unbeatable bundle! The included Rycote Windshield Kit 3 comes with a 2 year warranty from Sennhesier.
Schoeps MK 41 Supercardioid Capsule
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).
- 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
Schoeps CMC 6 Ug Microphone Amplifier
- 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
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.
Variant Amplifier Versions
Special versions of the CMC 6 Ug are available with different gain (amplification factor) or extended frequency range. The CMC 6 Ug can be specially ordered, or retrofitted at the factory, to have a different (e.g. lower) low-frequency limit from the standard version.
CMC 6 Ug xt – the 40 kHz version
This version is indicated by the letters ”xt” engraved on the microphone's output socket. It extends the frequency response of the axially addressed Colette capsules beyond 40 kHz. On the pages of these capsules, the frequency response curves are shown with both, the standard CMC 6 Ug amplifier and the CMC 6 Ug xt.

- The iconic Windshield Kit is the industry standard, and leads the way in windshielding and suspension technology
The Modular Windshield Kit is the professionals' choice when maximum isolation from wind and handling noise is required.
This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any microphone to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Components may be ordered separately, or as one of a series of kits, which simplify the selection process for many common configurations. A Modular Windshield Kit is comprised of the following three main components: Modular Suspension, Modular Windshield and Windjammer.
Our suspensions provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, by supporting the microphone in a cradle arrangement using Lyre suspension webs.
The Windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector, sliding onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation. This is the first layer of windshielding protection for your microphone.
The Windjammer introduced by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic fur covers, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. Fitted with a drawstring & toggle to allow snug and easy fitting. Modular Windshield Kits, including zipped Windjammer are also available on request.
