Common name: Schoeps MK 4V
Production Status: In production
The MK 4V is a small diaphragm side-addressed cardioid condenser capsule for the Colette system. The directional response is especially well maintained even at higher frequencies, due to the acoustically transparent housing. There is less high-frequency emphasis of off-axis sound than occurs with most small, axial-response cardioids. The MK 4V sounds brighter than the MK 4 because of its overall frequency response. It is ideal as spot microphone in orchestra and in double MS setup. Furthermore it is also well suited for speech applications due to the slight emphasis around 10 kHz that helps to improve intelligibility. Specifications shown refer to the capsule used in combination with the CMC6 xt preamplifier.
