A kit of Schoeps MK 21 (Wide Cardioid) microphone delivered with windscreen, stand adapter and wooden box. Schoeps Colette series offers a capsule for every situation.
Modular "Colette" microphones consist of the combination of two basic units as shown - a microphone capsule and amplifier.
The number of possible combinations is quite large - there are 20 types of microphone capsule and 6 basic types of amplifier. With very few exceptions, any type of capsule can be used with any type of amplifier. This feature of the Colette series is indicated by the above icon.
SCHOEPS introduced the world's first wide cardioid microphones and capsules some twenty years ago. This pattern combines the advantages of omnidirectional and cardioid characteristics in an optimal manner. To an extraordinary extent the directionality is independent of frequency, which means that regardless of its direction of origin, sound will be picked up free of unwanted coloration.
The wide cardioid is very well liked as a musical instrument microphone. Its sound quality, compared with that of a cardioid, is "warmer" and more "open."
