The Schoeps BLCG Boundary Layer Mounting Plate is designed for directional boundary-layer recording with cardioid and supercardioid microphones. This unit can turn any directional microphone, such as a cardioid or supercardioid CCM compact microphone or MK capsule with active cable, into a boundary-layer (PZM) microphone. This setup is especially useful when recording moving singers or actors on a stage, or when a microphone on a stand would be obtrusive.
When a transducer is placed upon or within a large, sound-reflecting surface, its output voltage will be twice that of an equivalent transducer in a free sound field. A rubber ring built into the bottom of the plate prevents inadvertent rotation of the plate or marring of the surface on which it is placed.

Matte gray surface finish
Unobtrusive microphone placement (no stands or hanging fixtures required)
Directional microphones can be used to compensate for compensating for the distance-dependent drop in sound level
