Common name: Schoeps MK 4P
Production Status: In production
The MK 4P is a small diaphragm cardioid capsule for the Colette system. This cardioid capsule is designed for the very closest speech pickup, under 20 cm, from the speaker’s mouth. Its low-frequency rolloff is compensated by proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker’s voice, while showing a roll-off at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking. Specifications shown refer to the capsule used in combination with the CMC6 xt preamplifier.
