Microphone Capsule

The MK 4 is optimised with regard to insensitivity to rear-incident sound. As is typical for the classic cardioid, the attenuation is 6 dB at 90° lateral incidence, up to 30 dB with incidence from the rear - depending on the frequency and the distance. Diffuse incident sound is reproduced 4.8 dB weaker than frontal, a value which corresponds to the bundling measure. The larger this is, the less "space" a microphone transmits and the lower its susceptibility to acoustic feedback.

With its polar pattern, at the same reverb balance, the MK 4 can be positioned approximately 1.7 times as far away from the sound source as a pressure receiver of the same sensitivity. Even in the diffuse sound field, i.e. at a great distance from the sound source in the room, this microphone type has a constant frequency response - except for a slight increase at 10 kHz.

The sound image is present and free from discolouration. This microphone type is equally suitable for voice and music recordings, which is why it is used in the ORTF stereo microphone (MSTC 64 Ug, or STCg). As an XY pair as well as a mid-microphone in an MS arrangement, it also delivers excellent results.

This microphone type is very versatile and is therefore used most frequently.

Excellent instrument microphone

Michael654, 25.08.2015
After a few months of searching for a microphone for saxophone, I am talking about the genre of small-diaphragm microphones when talking to a Thomann customer consultant with a high level of expertise (which the two other consultants with whom I had spoken unfortunately did not have to this extent) And thus came to the Schoeps MK4. At the same time I tested the Sennheiser MKH 8050. Both are excellent and very similar sounding microphones, the Sennheiser slightly more presence in the sound, the Schöps something softer, which I liked better.
The MK4 sounds neutral, leaves all possibilities open without imposing a sound. It does not rush, it does not distort, delivers a neutral yet warm sound. Perfect for saxophone !!! Runs with me always as 2. Micro with.
Supplement after 1 1/2 years: My enthusiasm for this microphone is unbroken. Above all, the wide angle of view often helps if one has moved too far to the side of the grand membrane microphone in the heat of the battle
