Schoeps CMIT SSM Shotgun Microphone Set

Shotgun set including the Rycote Super-Shield kit for superior proctection against wind-born noise
MFR# CMIT SSM Set

Product Description

The Schoeps CMIT SSM Set includes the CMIT 5U shotgun microphone, the Rycote Medium Super-Shield Kit, wood box, W 140 foam windscreen, and SG21 stand clamp.

CMIT 5

The CMIT 5 is SCHOEPS' shotgun microphone which has set a new standard for shotgun microphones since its release. The CMIT 5's directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies, which results in a very balanced sonic character. In addition to this, the microphone's sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds, allowing these to be recorded neutrally as well as reducing the effects of movement during boom operation. The CMIT 5 also has a much stronger directionality than one might expect from a microphone of its length. If required, the CMIT 5 can also be used for music recordings, for example opera recordings.

The sound quality of the CMIT 5 remains consistent even if the microphone is rotated on its axis, since its directional pattern is the same in both the vertical and horizontal planes.

Three pushbutton-activated filters allow the microphone to adapt to the recording situation:

  • High-frequency emphasis (+5 dB at 10 kHz) enhances speech intelligibility, and compensates for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens
  • A steep low-cut filter (18 dB/oct. below 80 Hz) suppresses wind and boom noise
  • A gentle low-frequency rolloff (6 dB/oct. below 300 Hz) compensates for proximity effect

Pairs of LEDs next to each pushbutton indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.

The capsule and amplifier of the CMIT 5 U are built as a single unit, unlike microphones of the SCHOEPS ”Colette” series.

  • Unusually low coloration of off-axis sound
  • Suitable for music recording as well as dialogue
  • Rotationally symmetrical polar pattern
  • Even greater immunity to wind noise than a SCHOEPS supercardioid
  • Very lightweight, robust all-metal housing

Rycote Medium Super-Shield Kit

This complete windshield / shock-mount system has a unique pod designed for fast microphone access while maintaining Rycote’s professional, flexible levels of wind protection set in place by the Modular Windshield system. This design integrates the same lightweight, flexible, robust plastic netting and screening material for professional performance and reliability.

Using Rycote’s Lyre Technology®, this clever suspension design enables the suspensions to snap in place quickly to attain the perfect position and balance for the microphone. With the included windjammer and Pistol-Grip, the system is ready to go wherever the next broadcast, sports, or news event takes you.

  • Unique pod design for fast microphone access
  • Snap-in, pinch-release Lyre suspensions for perfect balance and fit
  • Flexible, robust plastic netting with attached screening material
  • Excellent wind protection with minimal high-frequency loss
  • Included Windjammer for multiple levels of wind isolation

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
