A stereo set of Schoeps modular microphones with 2 MK21 wide cardioid capsules, 2 CMC6U preamps, 2 SG20 stand clamps and 2 B5D popscreens. 

The MK21 capsule has a directional pattern between omni and cardioid. The basic idea in designing tihs capsule was to combine the advantages of the cardioid pattern with those of the omni. This results in a pickup pattern which blends the two sets of characteristics. It has a fuller and more extended low-frequency response than a cardioid, with less proximity effect, while picking up more room sound than a cardioid.

The directivity of the MK21 is only slightly dependent on frequency. This contrasts with omnidirectional capsules, whose directivity increases within rising frequency, and with cardioids (at least smaller ones), which tend to accentuate high frequencies that arrive at oblique angles.


  • Wide cardioid
  • Especially consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • Pleasant sonic impression, often described as "warm"
  • Often preferred for use as a spot microphone, or as the main pair for overall stereo pickup


  • Frequency range: 30Hz - 20kHz
  • Sensitivity: 13mV/Pa
  • Equivalent noise level (A-weighted): 14dB-A
  • Equivalent noise level (CCIR): 24dB
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (A-weighted): 80dB-A
  • Maximum sound pressure level at 0.5% THD: 132dB-SPL
