Popular among professional field audio engineers, the gray Schoeps CMC641 Set is a Colette Series modular microphone system featuring the CMC 6 preamplifier and MK 41 supercardioid capsule for a high-quality alternative to shotgun microphones when recording dialog and sound effects indoors. The system is based on the modular CMC 6 preamplifier and MK series capsules, which are capable of wide, linear frequency response curves and superior audio quality. This system includes the CMC 6 preamplifier, an MK 41 capsule, the SG 20 microphone mount, a B5 pop filter, and a storage case.

The CMC 6 preamplifier features Class-A transformerless electronics, resulting in a low noise floor and light weight. The high-impedance input signal of the modular capsules are accurately converted to low-impedance energy, allowing for long cable runs without noise and radio-frequency interference.

The MK 41 capsule is a supercardioid condenser capsule with a wide frequency range and high SPL handling. The supercardioid capsule is effective in minimizing noise and ambient audio at the off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. The microphone system is optimized for crucial capturing of dialog and ambience for film, professional video, and professional audio applications.

Modular Design
The CMC 6 is designed to be used with any of the Schoeps Colette series modular capsules. The capsules provide various polar patterns and frequency response curves.
Wide Frequency Response
The CMC 6 modular preamplifier features transformerless Class-A electronics that result in a linear, transparent frequency response.
Superior Sound Characteristics
The superior quality of the capsule and preamplifier result in detailed, pristine audio quality with a very low noise floor.

Would mounting this on camera work well when trying to get audio of a moving documentary subject?
Asked by: Richard
Yes, the Schoeps CMC641 Set Colette Series Supercardioid Microphone Set could indeed serve as a high-quality on-camera microphone for capturing the audio of subjects in close range situations. The camera would need to be equipped with a 48V capable XLR input connection to accommodate the Schoeps.

Is there a recommended field recorder for a high end mic like this? Is a Zoom F3 good enough?
Asked by: Steven
I think the F3 would be good, but I just used it with a Zoom F6 and it was AMAZING!! The preamps are great! Just used it on an interior scene that had shouting and quieter dialog. The F6 showed in the red, but there was no clipping in the recording, at all. It also picked up all the quieter stuff, plain as day!

Hey guys, is this product the right one to get if I plan on using with a SD 633 mixer which can supply 48V phantom? It's confusing to know whether I need this or the more expensive $1900 mic. How does it compare with Senn 8060 or MKH 50? Is this mic no good in humid conditions or with possible RF interference?
Asked by: David
Thank you for your Question. If humidity and RF are a big concern i would highly recommend sticking with the 8060. The Schoeps is great but it does not have built in protections again humidity or RF interference.
