Schoeps ORTF Stereo Microphone MSTC 64 U
Special Order

The Product of Over 50 Years of German Engineering!

ORTF is a mic technique that proves very handy when recording in stereo. Schoeps makes it easy for even inexperienced recordists to capture you good stereo recording with the MSTC 64 U. With a pair of MK 4 cardioid capsules fixed in an ORTF pattern, the MSTC 64 U is prime for hanging out over a drum kit or for stereo recording on the go (the MSTC 64 U can be powered by as little as 12V of power - great for mobile recording rigs that are often battery powered!).

Schoeps microphones are among the most respected in the industry. Since 1948, Schoeps microphones have benefitted 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.

Best Microphone ever!!

It is almost impossible to get a bad recording with this microphone. I have been using it to record live orchestra and chorus where you don't have a lot of options about set up. With the ORTF it doesn't matter. Just set it up behind the conductor and the recording you get will astound you. All of the critical positioning is done for you, only the distance is variable. Worth the high price tag.
