The matte gray MK 41 Microphone Capsule from Schoeps comes as a matched pair, and is highly directional. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated. The pickup is dry and less susceptible to acoustic feedback.
This capsule has directivity that is highly independent of frequency, so that even sounds arriving off axis and reverberant sound are registered without coloration. Consequently, even distant placement of this capsule produces a very natural sound pickup. Interference-tube microphones are sensitive to their position in a room, where the shifting patterns of reflections causes corresponding shifts in sound color. This capsule is an effective, space-saving alternative to shotgun microphones. Being small, it can often be placed closer to the sound source. An M/S microphone arrangement can be set up at quite some distance from the sound source if this capsule is used for the M-channel. This capsule has slightly more rolloff at the low end due to the gradient effect and it has less diffuse field response elevation.
This capsule is delivered with a hand-signed Certificate from the factory. Matching is of frequency response and sensitivity within exceptionally low tolerances. Loudspeaker should not be located directly along the rear axis of the microphone.
