Schoeps CMC 141 Supercardioid Condenser Microphone Set
The Schoeps CMC 141 Microphone Set is a complete cardioid condenser microphone set including a CMC 1 amplifier with MK 41 supercardioid capsule, pop screen, clamp and wooden box.
CMC 1 Amplifier
The CMC 1 is our new, small Colette microphone amplifier, about one-third the size and 40% lighter than the CMC 6. It is compatible with all components of the Colette system and can be used in place of the CMC 6 without compromise, for all applications in which the size and weight of the microphone play a role.
At SCHOEPS, “uncompromising miniaturization” means that the electrical characteristics of the CMC 1 are equal to, or even better than, those of the CMC 6.
- High maximum SPL: 135 dB-SPL with the MK 4 (0.5% THD or less)
- Very low current consumption: 2.0 mA at 48 Volts
- Operates on 48 V or 12 V phantom power
- Very high immunity from RF interference with the SCHOEPS RFI Shield
- Complete alternative to the renowned CMC 6
- Fully compatible with all existing MK capsules and Colette active accessories such as the CUT 60 and RC tubes
- Suitable mounting accessories are already available, such as the CINELA E-OSIX-CMC1U and the Rycote INV-6 elastic suspensions
MK 41 CAPSULE
The MK 41 effectively attenuates diffuse sound energy and produces a clear, "dry" sound pickup.
Its polar pattern is exceptionally frequency-independent: sounds from the side and back are strongly attenuated, but picked up without false coloration. This feature has made the MK 41 an international standard for indoor film sound.
The susceptibility of the MK 41 to acoustic feedback is lower than with any other SCHOEPS capsule type, provided that no loudspeaker radiates directly from the rear. The sensitivity minimum of the supercardioid occurs at approximately a 125° angle of incidence.
The directional effect is independent of frequency, so that off-axis and diffuse sound are picked up free of false coloration, thus sounding natural. That is a real advantage over shotgun microphones, which have appreciably greater directivity only at higher frequencies, and frequency response (and thus sound quality) that depends on the direction of sound incidence.
Thus for many situations the MK 41 offers an interesting alternative to a shotgun microphone, even if its small dimensions do not appear to suggest high directivity. As a capsule without an interference tube in front of it, the MK 41 can also be placed closer to the sound source.
- Supercardioid directional pattern
- High directivity, at low and medium frequencies comparable to that of a shotgun microphone
- Natural sound due to flat frequency response which remains largely the same for all directions of pickup. This is particularly important for indoor recording
- Preferred uses: recording dialogue for film sound; as a spot microphone in the orchestra and on the opera stage
The Colette series was introduced back in 1973 and has since been made up of mutually compatible modules that are constantly being updated and supplemented. No other microphone system has been on the market for such a long time. The Colette series invented the modularity in microphone technology and is considered more than ever before to be the best small-diaphragm microphone system.
Microphones from the modular Colette series are comprised of a microphone capsule screwed onto an amplification unit. Any capsule can be combined with any amplifier. Active accessories can be inserted between capsule and amplifier if desired. The RC active extension tube in particular graces many high-profile events with its stylish appearance. Due to its modular nature, the Colette system offers a large variety of options, for a wide range of use cases.
