Schoeps MK5 overview

  • 1Description

The nickel MK 5 Microphone Capsule from Schoeps offers 2 selectable directional patterns, but uses only 1 membrane.

In its omnidirectional setting, the MK 5 Microphone Capsule is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitivity to most wind and breath noise, handling noise or mechanical vibration, and no proximity effect.

In its cardioid setting, the MK 5 Microphone Capsule retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible. Additionally, the MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis.

Note: The pattern selector should be definitely set to one position or the other; in-between settings will yield undefined results.

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
In the Omni Setting: For recording instruments, singers, and more at relatively close range
