Schoeps CCM 2 Omnidirectional Compact Microphone
Compact Omni Microphone for recording close to the sound source.
What we think:
All capsules are available in matched pairs with official Schoeps documentation. For matched pairs multiply the cost of the microphone exactly by two and then add $50 for the matching fee! The amplifier bodies are available in sequentially serial numbered pairs at no additional charge. Any Schoeps product not found on our webpage can be purchased through Sound Pure. Please call and talk to one of our staff members to inquire about the price and availability! Additionally, contact us for more information regarding personalized laser engraving on your Schoeps microphones.
- linear frequency response
- corrected for the direct sound field
- for use close to the sound source (frontal sound incidence)
- preferred applications: close pickup of singers and instruments
As can be seen from the frequency response curve, this microphone type has flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence. This yields a very natural quality when picking up sound that is predominantly direct, i.e. close to the source or in a ”dry” acoustic. The sonic impression never becomes overly brilliant or ”sharp.”
Please note that there is some directivity at high frequencies due to the physics of sound wavelengths. Thus even with an omnidirectional microphone, it still matters which way the capsule is “aimed.”
