The Schoeps CMIT CWS SET is a package designed for location sound recording for film and electronic news gathering (ENG) applications. The package consists of the company's CMIT 5 U shotgun microphone, a Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit, a wooden box for storing the microphone, a W 140 foam windscreen, and an SG20 swiveling microphone stand adapter clamp. By combining these components, you can record high quality sound in the field with minimal noise from the wind.
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
Schoeps W 140G Foam Windscreen for Schoeps CMIT5U and MiniCMIT Shotgun Microphones (Gray)
The gray Schoeps W 140G is a windscreen designed to fit a Schoeps CMIT5U or MiniCMIT shotgun microphone and provide significant reduction of plosives and wind noise for sound recordists and boom operators in field recording, interviews, ENG, and film and television production. Its acoustic foam construction protects the mic from moisture and dirt commonly encountered in outdoor environments. W 140 windscreens deliver up to 18 dBA of wind-noise reduction.

Schoeps SG20 Microphone Stand Clamp
The Schoeps SG20 Microphone Stand Adapter is designed to stand mount microphones measuring 20mm or 21mm in diameter. The SG20 features a strong metal housing and a durable plastic clamp. Its base is threaded for 5/8"-27 stands, and a threaded adapter is included to accommodate 3/8" and 1/2" mounting. The angle is continuously variable.
Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit (Large)
Ideal for a multitude of outdoor ENG, broadcast, and film applications, this large Cyclone Windshield Kit from Rycote features a two-piece "Z-Locking" basket design that magnetically affixes around your microphone, isolating the mic from wind-caused noise. Up to 50 dB of reduction can be achieved with use of the Cyclone Windshield alone, and >60 dB is possible when used with a Windjammer on top of it. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which reduces reflections from parallel surfaces in the recording environment, providing clean audio recordings during outdoor interviews, location shoots, and more. It's designed to provide wind noise reduction that exceeds traditional modular-style windshield/windjammer combined performance.
The Cyclone introduces a "multi-suspension" design that provides isolation against handling noise, cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. This multi-suspension design inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted, thereby improving recording quality.
The kit includes the Cyclone Suspension fitted with 72-shore Universal Lyres, a Cyclone XLR cable, a large Cyclone Windshield, a pair of Universal Lyres 62-shore for lightweight microphones, and a hex key driver for making adjustments to the Lyres on the suspension.
