Schoeps CCM 2S U Compact Microphone, omni, permanently attached cable, incl. SGC and premium case
The MK 2S exhibits a slight high-frequency emphasis for frontal sound incidence, with only a slight rolloff of high frequencies off axis and in the reverberant sound field.
The frequency response characteristic of the CCM 2S falls between that of the CCM 2 and the CCM 3, making this microphone suitable for a wide range of applications.
- omnidirectional pattern
- slight high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at moderate recording distances
- for a very wide range of recording applications
- often preferred for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and “Decca Tree” arrangements
Although our normal production tolerances are very close, we can deliver specially matched compact microphone pairs for a small extra charge.
The CCM 2S has proven particularly useful in two- and three-microphone stereo arrays, where its placement near the reverberation radius of the sound field presents a sonically balanced pickup favored by many recording engineers. This model has become our most popular pressure transducer.
For spaced microphone (“A/B”) stereo recording and especially the “Decca Tree” method, KA 40 accessory spheres are recommended.
