Schoeps MK5 overview

  • 1Description

The nickel finish MK 5 Microphone Capsule from Schoeps comes as a matched pair, and offers 2 selectable directional patterns, but uses only a single membrane, a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the high audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.

In its omnidirectional setting, this 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. This capsule has a cardioid setting that retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design are in its purity and clarity of sound which is immediately audible. This capsule has a slight high-frequency emphasis.

The MK 5 Microphone Capsule is nearly an all-purpose capsule. It is recommended for those starting out with the Colette series.

Note: This capsule is delivered with a hand-signed certificate from the factory. Matching is of frequency response and sensitivity within exceptionally low tolerances.
The pattern selector should be definitely set to one position or the other; in-between settings will yield undefined results.

Comes in a pack of 2
Omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
Broad range of applications
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
