MK 4Vg Cardioid, side-address, matte gray, slight high frequency emphasis
Schoeps Microphone Capsule MK 4V *** PLEASE SPECIFY MATTE GRAY OR NICKEL FINISH WHEN ORDERING. ****cardioid for lateral pickup. *for universal application. *slight high-frequency emphasis. The MK 4V and CCM 4V were created in answer to requests for a cardioid microphone whose main axis is along the side of the capsule. In addition to its usefulness in the concert hall, this microphone type is of particular value in speech recording, since its slight emphasis around 10 kHz helps to improve intelligibility.The directional response is especially well maintained even at higher frequencies, due to the acoustically transparent housing. High-frequency emphasis of off-axis sound - typical of most small axial-response cardioids - occurs less with the MK 4V/ CCM 4V, but because of its inherent frequency response, it still sounds somewhat brighter overall than the MK 4 or CCM 4.For speech applications, SCHOEPS offers the pop filter PR 120 SV.The MK 4V may be easier to use in near-coincident setups than the MK 4: the microphone bodies do not get in each other's way. With the MK 4 this can be avoided using GVC ?elbows" or Colette cables.Note: Though not specifically designed for such use, the MK 4V capsule can also be used on the RC Active Tube or the variable angle joint GVC; when fully tightened it will rarely be aimed where you intend. On request we will supply an elastic ring which can be slipped over the threads of the RC or GVC so that the final turn of the capsule will place it at the desired angle of rotation.
