Features

Description

With the Schoeps MK 5, pattern switching is purely mechanical via a sliding lever on the side of the capsule. The result in each setting is like an independent microphone capsule with the same quality as the MK 2S / MK 4, and very similar (though not identical) frequency and polar response characteristics. In contrast to most dual-diaphragm microphones, the cardioid setting of the MK 5 maintains its directivity even at the lowest frequencies and has high frequency response up to 20 kHz. In addition, the MK 5 has excellent low-frequency response in the omnidirectional setting along with the low sensitivity toward wind, vocal “popping” noise and solid-borne sound typical of pressure transducers.

 

FEATURES

  • Supercardioid directional pattern
  • High directivity, at low and medium frequencies comparable to that of a shotgun microphone
  • Natural sound due to flat frequency response which remains largely the same for all directions of pickup. This is particularly important for indoor recording
  • Preferred uses: recording dialogue for film sound; as a spot microphone in the orchestra and on the opera stage

 

PRACTICE

The MK 5 is nearly an all-purpose capsule. It is what we recommend for those starting out with the Colette series, unless particular circumstances (such as the need for greater directivity or a bidirectional pattern) would indicate a different choice.

(Please note: The pattern selector should be definitely set to one position or the other; in-between settings will yield undefined results.)

 

VARIANTS & OPTIONS

Matching: Although our normal production tolerances are very close, we can deliver specially matched capsule pairs for a small extra charge.

Custom color: nickel, chromagreen, other custom colors on request
