Schoeps Microphones

Schoeps Microphones are professional audio tools for discriminating musicians, engineers and producers.  Their best-known offerings are from their 'Colette' modular series, which are comprised of preamp/bodies and microphone capsules that users select for given applications.  Choose a particular pickup pattern, be it cardioid, wide cardioid, hyper-cardioid or one of their peerless omni microphone capsules.

Tidepool Audio has been an authorized Schoeps microphone dealer for over fifteen years and can help you pick out the appropriate Schoeps microphone for your application.

Schoeps microphone capsules are offered with differing frequency response curves to complement the pickup pattern dictated by the mic'ing application at hand.  For instance, an engineer may choose to use an omni with a bit of rise on the top end if distance mic'ing in a hall or church is the main priority - or potentially opt for a capsule with a flatter top-end response when close-in or 'spot' instrument mic'ing.  Of course some may choose to use a Schoeps microphone capsule with a discernable rise - even when close up to convey a hyper-detailed representation of a particular music instrument's timbre.

Schoeps Colette Microphones are sold in Mono Sets and Matched Stereo Sets which include a CMC1 or CMC6 preamp, capsule, stand adapter and windscreen, all housed in a handsome and protective box.
