Manufacturer's Description from Schoeps

Overview

  • supercardioid for vertical pickup (side-addressed)
  • for a very wide range of recording applications
  • high directivity, comparable to that of a short “shotgun“ microphone up through midrange frequencies
  • with especially consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • often preferred for use in music and speech recording, as a spot microphone and also as a main microphone, especially when using the OCT recording method

Like the MK 41, the MK 41V is useful in all situations with music or speech, either as a “spot“ microphone or as an overall directional microphone. However, this type of capsule is addressed from the side. It excels particularly in the constancy of its polar response throughout the audio spectrum. As a result, sound within 90º on either side of the main axis is picked up with virtually no alteration of frequency response or tone color. This is strongly evident with sound sources that are in motion, but is also of great benefit in obtaining stable, precise stereo imaging for normal music recordings.

Applications

This capsule type is preferred for use as a support microphone as well as in the OCT (“Optimized Cardioid Triangle“) microphone system for surround sound recording introduced by Günther Theile of the IRT, Munich. (The front left and right channels in that system are picked up by sideways-facing supercardioid microphones.)
When mounted on CMC amplifiers, the MK 41V may be easier to use in near-coincident setups than the MK 41 because the parallel microphone bodies will not get in each other's way.

About Manufacturer

The focus on high quality, reliability and neutral accurate sound has been the production philosophy of Schoeps Microphones since 1948. The simple elegance and clever engineering of their products boast a true passion for the art of microphone making and a tireless attention to detail. The Colette System is the largest modular mic system available offering twenty different capsules and various active accessories. The newest addition to the acclaimed Colette System is the CMC 6 xt which offers extended frequency response beyond 40 kHz. The CCM Series mics are the smallest phantom powered non-electret microphones in the world. Other notables from Schoeps include the M222 Tube microphone, the VMS 5U portable two channel mic preamp and M/S matrix, three extremely unique stereo mics, the KFM-360 Surround microphone and the Polarflex Microphone System that allows the user to emulate the characteristics of any microphone. Schoeps is unquestionably among the most innovative microphone manufacturers in the world, leading the way in many developments. Central to its design philosophy over the years is the company's insistence on absolute sound neutrality of the microphones. It is really no wonder that Schoeps has so many supporters, not only in the area of classical music recording and reinforcement, but also in film and television. No doubt part of its success is due to the fact that, in a space of only 1500 square meters, a total of 35 employees develop, manufacture and distribute the whole range of Schoeps products. Staff turnover is very small, which says much about the family atmosphere in the company. Many an employee has celebrated his or her 25th anniversary with Schoeps. Continuity is and will remain very important at Schoeps. Despite many outside offers, Ulrich Schoeps intends to continue the life's work of his father.
