Schoeps CCM 5 Compact Switchable Microphone

Compact Microphone with a Switchable Cardioid/Omni Pick up pattern
Part No: SCH-CCM5

The CCM 5 offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane – a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.

Product Description

Details

The CCM 5 offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane – a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.

In its omnidirectional setting the CCM 5 is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitivity to most wind and breath noise, handling noise or mechanical vibration, and no proximity effect.

Unlike conventional, dual-diaphragm multi-pattern microphones, its cardioid setting retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible.

The CCM 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (CCM 2) and cardioid (CCM 4).

The CCM 5 is nearly an all-purpose microphone. It is what we recommend for those starting out with the CCM series, unless particular circumstances (such as the need for greater directivity or a bidirectional pattern) would indicate a different choice.

(Please note: The pattern selector should be definitely set to one position or the other; in-between settings will yield undefined results.)

Features

  • Omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
  • Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
  • Broad range of applications
  • Preferred uses similar to those of the MK 2 or MK 2S and the MK 4: In the cardioid setting: for use with singing or speaking voices or most instruments, as a spot microphone, and for stereo recording with coincident, ORTF or M/S microphone arrangements
