The Colette Series are modular microphones that are very popular among field audio engineers. The analog microphone systems are based on the modular CMC6 preamplifier and interchangeable MK series capsules. The capsules provide wide, linear frequency response curves and superior audio quality.

This set includes the MK5 switchable-pattern capsules. The MK5 features switchable cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns for maximum flexibility and control. This versatile capsule is capable of accurately capturing a wide variety of audio sources include singing, speech, instruments, and more.
