The Schoeps MiniCMIT M/S Pianissimo Set is a pair of Schoeps condenser microphones with a windscreen set designed for mid-side recording of dialog and instruments indoors or outdoors in windy conditions. It includes a MiniCMIT miniature shotgun microphone, CCM 8 Lg figure-8 microphone, a Cinela PIANI-2 basket-type windscreen set with a long-pile fur cover, a wood box, an XLR 5-pin extension, and a break-out cable that converts an XLR 5-pin to two XLR 3-pin jacks.
The microphones boast wide frequency responses, excellent off-axis rejection, and compact bodies. The included Cinela windscreen set is acoustically transparent and offers significant vibration isolation and wind-noise reduction.
An integrated cable system merges the individual mic outputs to an XLR 5-pin jack. Connect the XLR 5-pin output to the supplied XLR 5-pin extension and breakout cable, which converts an XLR 5-pin to two XLR 3-pin connectors. From there, you can easily route signal to your preferred mic preamps.
Schoeps MiniCMIT Short Shotgun Microphone (Blue)
Obtain the sonic characteristics of the highly regarded CMIT 5 in a compact and lightweight body with the blue Schoeps MiniCMIT short shotgun microphone, a top-tier performer for camera- or boompole-mounted use in film, TV, and location recording applications. Compliant with P12 and P48 phantom powering, the MiniCMIT can be used with professional and consumer devices.
A fixed 24 dB/octave low-cut filter at 70 Hz ensures that excessive boom noise and rumble will be kept under control. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.
The MiniCMIT'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 MiniCMIT delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.
Professional Sound Quality
With directionality that increases smoothly at high frequencies and a 60 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, the MiniCMIT is optimized for neutral, transparent capture of dialogue, foley, sound effects, and instruments. Considering its low self-noise of 14 dBA and moderate sensitivity of -35 dB, it performs best with a clean, high-gain mic preamp.

Schoeps KS 5 U XLR-5 Stereo Microphone Cable (16.4')
The 16.4' KS 5 U XLR-5 Stereo Microphone Cable from Schoeps has a thin diameter of 0.1" (4.4mm) and is made of Kevlar fiber making it extremely robust and nearly invisible when suspended. This cable remains flexible even in cold conditions and is non-twisting when used for hanging a microphone.
Schoeps AK SU/2U Cable for Stereo Microphones
The AK SU/2U Adapter Cable from Schoeps is for use with stereo microphones MSTC 64 Ug (ORTF), KFM 6 and KFM 360 (sphere microphones) as well as the CMXY 4V Ug (X/Y microphone). The cable is used to adapt a stereo XLR-5F jack to two XLR-3M plugs.
The combination of this adapter cable with its inverse counterpart (AK 2U/SU: 2 x XLR-3F to XLR-5M) and an XLR-5 extension cable makes it possible to use just one cable for a stereo setup.
