Schoeps V4 U
The V4 U is the studio vocal microphone by Schoeps, that features a classic design and an outstanding sound.
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.
A 33-mm beveled 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 V4 U is available in the two standard colors: blue or grey.
The "V4 SGV Set" contains the microphone, the wooden case and the SGV tripod clamp. The "V4 USM Set" contains the microphone, the wooden case and the elastic USM-V4 suspension.
