Schoeps MK 5g Omni and Cardioid Microphone Capsule - Gray finish,

The MK 5 offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane, a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.

In its omnidirectional setting the MK 5 is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitivity to most wind and breath noise, handling noise or mechanical vibration, and no proximity effect.

Unlike conventional, dual-diaphragm multi-pattern microphones, its cardioid setting retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible.

The MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (MK 2) and cardioid (MK 4).
  • omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
  • slight emphasis of the high frequencies
  • broad range of applications
  • preferred uses similar to those of the MK 2 or MK 2S and the MK 4:
  • in the cardioid setting: for use with singing or speaking voices or most instruments, as a spot microphone, and for stereo recording with coincident, ORTF or M/S microphone arrangements
  • in the omni setting: for recording instruments, singers, etc. at relatively close range
