Schoeps MK 21 Wide Cardioid Capsule - Matte Gray
The Schoeps MK 21g Subcardioid capsule has a directional pattern between omni and cardioid. The basic idea behind this capsule is 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 manufacturer’s 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.
