The matte gray Schoeps Colette CMC 1 Microphone Amp, MK 41 Supercardioid Condenser Capsule, and Low-Cut Filter is a space-saving Colette Series modular supercardioid condenser microphone bundle with a low-cut filter that can be inserted between the capsule and amplifier.
This mic bundle is designed to provide consistent directionality, reduced infrasonic disturbances, and transparent, low-distortion sound pickup of dialog, foley, and instruments in film, television, and music production.
It includes the CMC 1 miniature microphone amplifier, the MK 41 condenser capsule, the CUT 60 low-cut filter, a foam windscreen, a stand clamp, and a premium case. Thanks to the inclusion of the ultracompact CMC 1, this bundle serves as a lighter and smaller alternative to the CMC 6 without compromising sonic performance.
Schoeps CMC 1 Miniature Colette Microphone Amplifier (Matte Gray)
The matte gray Schoeps CMC 1 is a miniature Colette Series microphone amplifier offering uncompromising high fidelity in a lightweight and ultracompact form factor for studio recording, broadcast, and live stage applications. Presented as an alternative to the renowned Schoeps CMC 6 amplifier, the CMC 1 is compatible with all existing MK mic capsules and Colette active accessories (all available separately).
It features a balanced XLR output, compliance with 12V or 48V phantom power, and low current consumption. Its Schoeps RFI Shield provides high immunity from RF interference for a clean, low-noise signal. The CMC 1 supports the high maximum SPLs tolerated by the various MK mic capsules (available separately).
- Complete alternative to the renowned CMC 6 amplifier
- Can be used in place of the CMC 6 with no compromise
- Electrical characteristics of the CMC 1 are equal to, or even better than, those of the CMC 6
- 1.4" long (about a third the size of the CMC 6)
- 1.3 ounces (about 40% lighter than the CMC 6)
- Fully compatible with all existing MK capsules and Colette active accessories such as the CUT 60 and RC tubes
- Very high immunity from RF interference with the Schoeps RFI Shield
- Includes mic clip for easy attachment to a mic stand
- Suspension mounts such as the Rycote INV-6 are available separately
Schoeps MK 41 Supercardioid Condenser Microphone Capsule (Matte Gray)
The matte gray Schoeps MK 41 is a supercardioid condenser microphone capsule designed to deliver minimal coloration and accurate capture of speech and music for sound recordists and audio engineers in film, television, and video production and studio recording sessions. The supercardioid polar pattern offers enhanced attenuation of off-axis SPL and consistent directionality throughout its 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, which naturally rolls off sub-bass frequencies.The MK 41 is compatible with Schoeps Colette microphone amplifiers and requires no tools to install.
Schoeps CUT 60 Low-Cut Filter for Colette Series Microphones (Gray)
The gray Schoeps CUT 60 for Colette Series Microphones provides a sharp 24 dB/oct low-cut filter at 60 Hz, which helps cut down on unwanted low frequency noise caused by wind, the boom, or a cable. In particular, pressure-gradient transducers (directional microphones) produce high infrasonic signal levels when exposed to wind. This can saturate an input transformer or an amplifier stage, and can result in loud, unwanted pops and rumble in your audio. The CUT 60 filters out frequencies that are 60 Hz and below, helping to prevent your audio from being marred by these disturbances.
- Recommended for use with the MK41 capsule on a boom
- Can be screwed between MK capsules and CMC amplifier
- Effective suppression of low-frequency wind noise and mechanical noise
- Steep filter (24 dB/oct)
- The frequency range that most speech occurs in remains unaffected
Schoeps Solid Foam Teardrop Popscreen for Schoeps Colette Series Microphones (Gray)
This gray Solid Foam Teardrop Popscreen from Schoeps is an acoustic foam close-speech popscreen intended for use with Schoeps Colette Series microphones, but compatible with other microphone capsules as well. It provides sufficient protection at normal speaking distances for cardioids and other directional capsules, especially when speech capsules are used. With omnidirectional capsules, it may even be used outdoors in light wind. This popscreen has minimal effect on sound quality.
