A kit of Schoeps MK 8 (Bi-Directional) 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.
This capsule type is a true dipole (bidirectional) transducer, operating with a single diaphragm. Its main axis is at a right angle to the capsule, and is marked at 0° and 180° with a red and a black dot respectively.
