About: Schoeps CMC641 Mono Set MK41 Supercardioid Condenser Mic

The Colette series was introduced back in 1973 and has since been made up of mutually compatible modules that are constantly being updated and supplemented. No other microphone system has been on the market for such a long time - and we still guarantee that the system will continue to be our most important product in the future. The Colette series invented the modularity in microphone technology and is considered more than ever before to be the best small-diaphragm microphone system.

Microphones from our modular Colette series are comprised of a microphone capsule screwed onto an amplification unit. Any capsule can be combined with any amplifier. Active accessories can be inserted between capsule and amplifier if desired. The RC active extension tube in particular graces many high-profile events with its stylish appearance. Due to its modular nature, the Colette system offers a large variety of options, for a wide range of use cases.

MK41 Supercardioid Capsule

The MK 41 effectively attenuates diffuse sound energy and produces a clear, "dry" sound pickup.

Its polar pattern is exceptionally frequency-independent: sounds from the side and back are strongly attenuated, but picked up without false coloration. This feature has made the MK 41 an international standard for indoor film sound.

The susceptibility of the MK 41 to acoustic feedback is lower than with any other SCHOEPS capsule type, provided that no loudspeaker radiates directly from the rear. The sensitivity minimum of the supercardioid occurs at approximately a 125° angle of incidence.

The directional effect is independent of frequency, so that off-axis and diffuse sound are picked up free of false coloration, thus sounding natural. That is a real advantage over shotgun microphones, which have appreciably greater directivity only at higher frequencies, and frequency response (and thus sound quality) that depends on the direction of sound incidence.

Thus for many situations the MK 41 offers an interesting alternative to a shotgun microphone, even if its small dimensions do not appear to suggest high directivity. As a capsule without an interference tube in front of it, the MK 41 can also be placed closer to the sound source.

  • 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
