The CMIT5U Shotgun Microphone Kit from Schoeps includes a blue CMIT5U Shotgun Microphone and a Rycote Super-Shield Kit for Shotgun Microphones. The CMIT5U is suitable both for music and speech; its directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies and sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds. The Super-Shield is a synthetic fur cover used to combat extreme wind noises without substantial high-frequency loss. A wooden case and a foam windscreen are also included.
Schoeps CMIT 5 Shotgun Microphone (Blue)
Sized between the short MiniCMIT and the long SuperCMIT, the blue Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun microphone is an excellent all-around boom mic for indoor and outdoor applications. Highly regarded for film, TV, and location recording, the CMIT 5 offers customizable tone and predictable directionality, even when rotated.
Three selectable filters let you manage boom noise, proximity effect, high-frequency emphasis to ensure balanced, professional audio quality. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.
The CMIT 5's supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields directional characteristics that smoothly increase at higher frequencies while providing low off-axis coloration for natural sound at all angles. With low self-noise, moderate sensitivity, and high SPL handling, the CMIT 5 delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.
Professional Sound Quality
Pairs of LEDs next to each push button indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness, the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
Rycote Super-Shield Kit for Shotgun Mics (Medium)
The medium Super-Shield Kit for Shotgun Mics from Rycote is a complete windshield and shock mounting system for shotgun microphones 20-25cm in length. The kit contains the Super-Shield Suspension which provides your microphone isolation from shocks and vibrations, the Super-Shield Windshield which provides wind-noise reduction with minimal high-frequency loss, and the Windjammer, a high-quality synthetic fur cover which provides protection against extreme wind noise.
The Super-Shield Suspension features patented Lyre technology, which provides your microphone isolation from shocks and vibrations without the use of rubbers or elastic. The chassis fits microphones 19mm (3/4") to 25mm (1") in diameter, using two snap-in, pinch-release Lyre suspensions that can be used in any of six positions to achieve the optimal balance and fit. The suspension comes with an 18" (450mm) high flexibility microphone cable.
Made up of two lightweight, durable baskets made from flexible grey plastic netting with a screening material attached, the Super-Shield Windshield connects to the Super-Shield Suspension. The windshield completely surrounds and creates a still volume of air around the microphone, which is designed to provide wind-noise reduction, with minimal high-frequency loss.
The Super-Shield Windjammer is a synthetic fur cover which provides another layer of protection to be used to combat extreme wind noise. Like the Super-Shield Windshield, it is designed to protect from wind without substantial high-frequency loss.
