Common name: Schoeps CCM 2
Production Status: In production
The CCM 2 is a compact small diaphragm omnidirectional condenser microphone for universal use. This microphone type has a flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence, which yields a very natural sound when recordings are made within the reverberation radius, where the direct sound (frontal incidence) predominates over the reverberant sound (random angles of incidence). It can and should be used very close to the sound source and should be directed towards it, since there is some loss of high frequencies in sound arriving off axis. It is ideal for close pickup of singers and instruments. Matched pairs are available although normal production tolerances are very close. Custom colours are available on request. Each CCM microphone is available as a standard version “L” with a Lemo plug and as a version “U” with a permanently attached 5 m cable and XLR-3M connector.
