Super-Cardioid Capsule

The MK 41 is strongly directional. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated even more than with a cardioid. The pickup is “drier” and less susceptible to acoustic feedback than any other SCHOEPS capsule type (a loudspeaker should not be located directly along the rear axis of the microphone, however).

Its directivity is highly independent of frequency, so that even sounds arriving off axis and reverberant sound are registered without colouration. Consequently, even distant placement of the capsule produces a very natural sound pickup. This is a real advantage over interference-tube “shotgun” microphones, whose directivity is very frequency-dependent – exceeding that of a supercardioid only at higher frequencies. Interference-tube microphones are notoriously sensitive to their position in a room, where the shifting patterns of reflections cause corresponding shifts in sound color. Thus the MK 41 are surprisingly effective, space-saving alternatives to shotgun microphones – and being small, they can often be placed closer to the sound source.

An M/S microphone arrangement can be set up at quite some distance from the sound source if an MK 41 is used for the “M“ channel.

A classic

Blickfanger, 21.12.2010
This is the capsule used on many film sets, for dialogue. It is great in that role, because when you miss the peak of the signal because you aim slightly beside the source, you can simply bring it up in the mix, because the MK41 has virtually no off-axis coloration. Most Schoeps mics are good in that respect, but the MK41 is their king, making it sound very natural, even when there is a lot of room reflection. That, plus the fact that it is a hypercardioid makes is eminently useful for recording voices and solo acoustic instruments.

All Schoeps mics sound very well balanced, neutral with a warm tone to them. The MK41 fits that description perfectly too. For recording piano I would not suggest these, but a more "clinical" sounding microphone, such as DPA omnis, because the Schoeps warmth can be overbearing a bit too much with the already deep warmth of the piano. But for strings, both bowed and plucked, and voices I can highly recommend the MK41.

Supernoning capsule with high sound fidelity

Ton-Tom, 14.09.2012
Together with a microphone from the Colette / CMC series from Schoeps, this capsule is a microphone of the highest sound quality. With the present "Superniere" directional characteristic, a higher diffuse-sound and side-damping is obtained than in the case of the kidney or even ball models without essentially having to dispense with the good sound properties of these. This capsule is thus recommended as a support microphone for orchestral recordings as well as an angling microphone for film sound recordings.

The microphone capsules from Schoeps are widely said to represent sound sources "honest" and "with minor discoloration". For me personally, they have their particular strength in the representation of the space surrounding the sound source.
