Realism plus

studio amsterdam, 12.04.2018
Everyone who wants to grasp realism while making panoramic recordings on a filmset or in a studio should at least get acquinted with this microphone. It is superb and moving on and off axis is not audible other than volume. No timbre rolloff! I use it a lot on midside recordings and me and my customers, artists, directors and editors love it. The small seize makes it perfect to hide it. Only negative thing is the price tag!

Schoeps is the benchmark for all small diaphragm microphones!

TAKE OFF Band, 27.02.2015
If you have already worked with Schoeps equipment, you do not need to explain anything more.

Who does not know Schoeps yet:
This is a small company with about 40 employees from Karlsruhe, which has always had its own path in terms of microphone development. The microphones are particularly well-known in the field of classical music and they are also very popular with the public broadcasting corporations, because the capsules transmit the signal absolutely sound-neutral and free from discoloration. The purchase price of Schoeps products is perceived as high by many - but in view of the quality it is quite justified.

To the capsule MK 8G:
This is an excellent capsule with eighth characteristic and fits all CMC microphone amplifiers (Colette series). In combination with a kidney (MK4 or Superniere MK41 or club CMIT 5 U) an MS stereo sound can be built up as a main microphone, for example. With a second MK8 capsule, a Blumlein stereophony can be realized. For an MS stereophony the elastic holder AMS22 from Schoeps is recommended. This is available in the shop. A very good reproduction of low frequencies is very noticeable for pressure gradient receivers, even at a great distance from the sound source. Compared to eight-capsules of other manufacturers is in my opinion here the great advantage.

Conclusion:
If you are looking for an extremely low-noise microphone that does not want to impress one's own character, and is ready to pay for real quality, Schoeps will be enthusiastic about it. The processing quality is really very good *****. This is general and applies to all Schoeps capsules and products. I myself bought over the last 20 years about 70 - 80 pieces at different microphones, exclusively from well-known manufacturers, but in hindsight I am annoyed something that I have not come much more to Schoeps.
