A Stereo Set of matched MK2 (Switchable Omni & Cardioid) 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 modular Colette series encompasses many more capsule and amplifier types than are offered in these sets. Combinations of these other capsule and amplifiers, or the extensive range of accessories, are not available as sets,
The MK 5 offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane - a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.
In its omnidirectional setting the MK 5 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.
Unlike conventional, dual-diaphragm multi-pattern microphones, its cardioid setting retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible.
The MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (MK 2) and cardioid (MK 4).
MK 5 Capsule
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, etc. at relatively close range
