Schoeps Colette Series

First and, to this day, leading small diaphragm modular system in which the amplifier section and capsule can be spatially separated from each other

  • supreme manufacturing quality
  • approved output circuit without a transformer
  • consistent polar pattern
  • very high definition
  • natural sound with only little colouring
  • especially popular for classic recordings
  • used more and more in pop music (grand piano, acoustic guitar, overhead)
  • Echoschall is official rental and dealer for Schoeps microphones. Our rental range currently consists of six CMC6 microphone amplifiers and 18 capsules. It will be continuously expanded
  • we rent Schoeps microphones with Rycote swing mount INV-7 or microphone clamp
  • the price is for one CMC6 + MK
  • manufacturing period: since 1973

Favourite applications of the currently hirable capsules:

  • MK2S (omni with moderate high-frequency boost, 3 capsules): Most universal omni capsule from Schoeps, ideal for AB stereo and Decca Tree
  • MK21 (wide cardioid, 2 capsules): warm sound, suitable for acoustic guitar, vocals among others
  • MK4 (cardioid, 6 capsules): very flexible application
  • MK41 (supercardioid, 2 capsules): high directivity, therefore particularly suitable for recording of speech and music in acoustically difficult rooms, largely hides the reverb sound
  • MK41S (supercardioid with bass roll-off, 2 capsules): similar to MK41, but optimized for near distance < 50cm, hihat recording, close talking
