This Schoeps Colette Series Stereo Set is comprised of 2 CMC6 amplifiers, 2 stereo matched MK5 capsules, a pair of SG 20 microphone mounts, windscreens, and a foam-lined wooden storage case.
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.
Matched Stereo Pair
This stereo package features a pair of CMC6 preamplifiers and MK5 switchable pattern capsules. The pair are matched in frequency and sensitivity response to ensure accurate stereo capturing in any application.
The CMC6 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 CMC6 modular power supply features transformerless Class-A electronics that result in a linear 50Hz to 20KHz frequency response.
Superior Sound Characteristics
The superior quality of the capsule and preamplifier result in detailed, pristine audio quality with very low noise floor.
MK5 Switchable Capsule Features
Omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
Broad range of applications
Preferred uses similar to those of the MK 2 or MK 2S and the MK 4:
In the cardioid setting: for use with singing or speaking voices or most instruments, as a spot microphone, and for stereo recording with coincident, ORTF or M/S microphone arrangements.
