A Stereo Set of matched MK 2H (Universal Omni) capsules delivered with CMC 6Ug bodies, windscreens, stand adapters and a wooden case.
SCHOEPS offers pairs of our best-selling "Colette"-series microphones in sets. Each wooden case contains two complete microphones with selected, matched capsules, SG 20 stand adapters, B 5 D windscreens and in most cases, CMC 6 analog microphone amplifiers.
The part of each stand adapter that holds the microphone is made of soft plastic, while the base is metal. The foam windscreens have an inner construction which makes them considerably more effective than typical windscreens of their size, while their surface treatment lends them a "high-class" appearance.
The MK 2H, like the MK 2S, is ideal for natural-sounding pickup of instruments and orchestras in spaces with well balanced reverberance. The choice between the two capsule types is essentially a matter of personal preference. At a given miking distance the MK 2H might be described as more "balanced and round" sounding while the MK 2S would give a slight additional brilliance. However, one might also choose the MK 2H for slightly closer placement or the MK 2S for slightly more distant placement - and then these two capsule types would have very similar sound quality, with the main difference being the balance of direct to reverberant sound which is picked up.
For spaced microphone ("A/B") stereo recording and especially the "Decca Tree" method, KA 40 accessory spheres are recommended.
