STUDIO VOCAL MICROPHONE V4 U

The V4 U is the studio vocal microphone by SCHOEPS. It unites the outstanding technical characteristics typical of SCHOEPS with a timeless, classic design. The “look” of the V4 U is based on the SCHOEPS CM 51/3 from 1951, but the V4 U is a thoroughly modern studio microphone. Its capsule, circuitry and mechanical construction are the result of extensive new development.

Features

  • Studio Vocal Microphone
  • New small-diaphragm capsule architecture, with bevelled collar for controlling the polar response.
  • Warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response.
  • Capsule head with adjustable tilt angle.
  • Optimal on-axis frequency response featuring a mild high-frequency lift.
  • Very smooth polar response; carefully-controlled narrowing of the pattern at high frequencies.
  • Diffuse-field response parallel to the 0 ° response, with a gentle roll-off at high frequencies.
  • Newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressure level.

The Capsule

  • A 33-mm bevelled collar causes the capsule’s directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a large diaphragm microphone.
  • Meanwhile, the superior acoustic qualities of a small-diaphragm capsule, like the extraordinarily smooth frequency and polar response, are maintained.
  • The capsule is elastically suspended internally to reduce solid-borne sound such as handling noise.

The Electronics

  • Newly developed bridge-type balanced output circuit.
  • Maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB SPL, corresponding to an output level of 4.8 V.
  • Output stage transformerless and free of coupling capacitors.
  • The resulting output impedance is low and constant with frequency, while the symmetry is very high.
  • Symmetrical, balanced output, the entire audio circuit is symmetrical from the output of the FET onward.
  • High immunity to interference, with gapless shielding and a modern RFI filter at the output; very good electromagnetic compatibility.
