Common name: Schoeps CCM 21
Production Status: In production
The CCM 21 is a compact small diaphragm wide cardioid condenser microphone with consistent directionality throughout its frequency range. The sound remains unchanged when the angle of incidence is altered. It is ideal as a spot microphone or as part of the main stereo pair. When used as a spot microphone is placed closer to the source compared to a cardioid microphone as its uniform off-axis response helps blending nearby instruments into the overall mix. 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.
