The Schoeps CMC621 Stereo Kit contains 2x CMC6u Mic Amp body, 2 matched MK21 Capsules, Windshields & Wooden box.
Schoeps now offers pairs of their 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”
Microphone capsule MK 21
- Wide cardioid
- Especially consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
- Pleasant sonic impression, often described as “warm”
- Often preferred for use as a spot microphone, or as the main pair for overall stereo pickup
This type of capsule has a directional pattern between omni and cardioid. The basic idea in designing this capsule was to combine the advantages of the cardioid with those of the omni. This results in a pickup pattern which blends the two sets of characteristics. It has fuller and more extended low-frequency response than a cardioid, with less proximity effect, while picking up more room sound than a cardioid.
The polar diagram shows the directivity of the MK 21 to be only slightly dependent on frequency. This contrasts with omnidirectional capsules, whose directivity increases with rising frequency, and with cardioids (at least smaller ones), which tend to accentuate high frequencies that arrive at oblique angles.
