Schoeps MK4 Overview

The nickel finish MK 4 Microphone Capsule from Schoeps comes as a matched pair, and offers high quality sound, flat frequency response, optimal rejection of rear-incident sound, and a directional pattern that remains constant throughout the audio frequency range. In the diffuse sound field, it shows only a mild rise of around 10 kHz; the sonic impression thus remains free of coloration even when sound is arriving from all sides at once. The sonic impression is also free of coloration whether sound is arriving at the front or at the sides of the microphone, as well as for diffuse sound (reverberation) in a room.

The MK 4 Microphone Capsule is often preferred by opera singers and other trained vocalists. But its natural, transparent character makes it suitable for use in pop and rock applications, on stage or in the studio, where equalization is a part of the plan. This microphone, with clear, neutral sound quality, provides a suitable point of departure whenever special coloring is needed.

This capsule is delivered with a hand signed Certificate from the factory. Matching is of frequency response and sensitivity within exceptionally low tolerances.
