CCM – Eight

SCHOEPS Compact Microphone CCM 8


Pure pressure-gradient transducer

Figure-8 pattern with near-ideal consistency across the frequency range

Side-addressed (pickup perpendicular to the microphone body)

Optimal for use in M/S and Blumlein stereo recording

This capsule type is a true dipole (bidirectional) transducer, operating with a single diaphragm.

Its main axis is at a right angle to the capsule, and is marked at 0° and 180° with a red and a black dot respectively.
