When you need your mics to give you exactly what they get, count on Schoeps. When combined with a Schoeps microphone amplifier, the MK 8 provides a classic figure 8 pickup pattern. Perfect for M-S or Blumlein stereo recording (when paired with a cardioid mic) the MK 8 is also great on its own. The MK 8's figure 8 pattern is very consistent across the frequency spectrum, giving you a very natural sound.
Schoeps microphones are among the most respected in the industry. Since 1948, Schoeps microphones have benefitted from innovative German engineering and an ongoing quest for transparency. Their unique designs and impeccable audio characteristics have earned Schoeps microphones a loyal following in classical music and audio for TV and film. With Schoeps microphones, any studio can bolster their microphone locker, adding mics that are not only sonically excellent but steeped in a rich history.
