The Schoeps MK21 is part of the Colette series of modular capsules designed for use with the CMC preamplifiers. Designed for close proximity capturing, the MK21 provides a wide cardioid polar pattern that provides a uniform response around the front hemisphere of the capsule. The wide cardioid pattern provides a more generous pick at the off-axis sections, although not quite as wide as an omnidirectional. The uniform frequency response results in an overall "warm" tonal quality, enhancing vocal performances and instrument capturing at close proximities.
Wide Cardioid Pick Up
The MK21 features a wide cardioid frequency response which provides a uniform response at the front hemisphere of the capsule.
Warm Tonal Quality
The wide frequency response is uniform at the direct and off-axis sections of the capsule. The result is a warm tonal signal reproduction of instruments and vocals.
Wide Linear Frequency Response
The wide frequency response ensures accurate detail regardless of the source signal.
