The Product of Over 50 Years of German Engineering!

When combined with a Schoeps capsule, the CMC 6 provides a flat, natural response with excellent protection from RF interference. The CMC 6 adjusts itself automatically from 12 volts to 48 volts depending on what the microphone amplifier is connected to, which is particularly handy for mobile recording where you're recording on battery power. The CMC 6 is a no-nonsense microphone body that uses symmetrical, transformerless, direct-coupled circuitry for premium sound. What you have here is a CMC 6 microphone amplifier paired with an MK 41 supercardioid capsule.

Schoeps microphones are among the most respected in the industry. Since 1948, Schoeps microphones have benefited from innovative German engineering and an ongoing quest for transparency. Their unique designs and impeccable audio characteristics have earned Schoeps microphones a loyal following in classical music and audio for TV and film. With Schoeps microphones, any studio can bolster their microphone locker, adding mics that are not only sonically excellent but steeped in a rich history. When it's time to upgrade your rig, don't settle for microphones that fall short. Reach for Schoeps.

CMC641

Sounds really good! Just finished ADR on History Channel's Hatfield's and McCoy's and it really worked well with the picture. Really amazed at how much better this mic sounds in a booth than a typical short or long shotgun. LOVE IT!

Schoeps CMC641 Set

I needed a supercardioid pick up pattern for indoor dialog - to avoid the issues of off-axis wall reflections and interference tube funk that shotgun mics encounter in small rooms. I expected this to be good. It was. Sound is absolutely beautiful. Extremely natural. Pattern is perfect. Picks up the target speaker perfectly, rejects what it's supposed to. The off-axis actors are attenuated as they should be, but without distortion and without adding any weird, "hey we're recording in a room with a microphone" artifacts. Perspective is very natural. Transition between on-axis and off-axis sound is extremely smooth, making this mic very easy to use. Size is tiny, allowing more headroom than a shotgun mic (talking literal, physical headroom, not audio signal headroom). I still love my Rode NTG3 and will use it wherever appropriate, but for interior dialog, small rooms, I can't imagine using anything except the Schoeps ever again.
