The V4 U is a studio microphone that unites the outstanding technical haracteristics typical of Schoeps with a timeless, classic design. The “look” of the V4U is based on the Schoeps CM 51/3 microphone 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. It produces a warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response. The V4’s newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressure level and excellent electromagnetic compatibility. The V4 is a fantastic vocal microphone and for the highest quality spot-miking of numerous instruments. A unique 33 mm beveled collar around the diaphragm causes its 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 are maintained. The capsule iselastically suspended internally to reduce handling noise and other solid-borne sound. The head can be angled /- 20°. The newly designed amplifier of the V4 U is completely symmetricalafter the capsule and can accept high SPL signals up to 144dB without attenuation.

The Capsule

  • A 33-mm beveled collar causes the capsule’s directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a largediaphragm 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
