A kit of Schoeps MK 41 (Supercardioid) 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.
The supercardioid has the greatest directional effect of any first-order pressure gradient transducer. The response 90° off-axis is -10 dB. The polar diagram is consistent at all frequencies, which means that regardless of its direction of origin, sound will be picked up free of unwanted coloration. For this reason the supercardioid is the preferred type of microphone for dialog recording in film and video sound, particularly indoors.
From low to midrange frequencies, the directionality of a supercardioid is comparable to that of a "shotgun" microphone.
MK 41 Capsule
supercardioid with highly consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
for music and speech
high directivity, comparable to that of a short "shotgun" microphone up through midrange frequencies
often preferred for use in film sound recording and as a spot microphone in orchestras
