Joe was very accommodating for my pickup and drop off. Equipment was in great shape and worked well. I only wish I had been told that the fan needed to be turned on to take the light to full output.

Very down to earth and knowledgeable in his craft. A great person to work with and look forward to in the future.

Joe was very helpful and communicative. The shoulder mount kit was exactly as described and he even included a bag for me. Thanks!

This combination of the CMC 5 preamp and the MK41 capsule is perfect for interior dialogue, with the classic Schoeps warmth and even off-axis response with little coloration.

From the manufacturer:
The Schoeps MK41 is part of the Colette series of modular capsules. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated even more than with a standard cardioid. The pickup is "drier" and less susceptible to acoustic feedback, provided there isn't a strong sound source directly on the rear axis of the microphone. Its directivity is highly independent of frequency, so that even sounds arriving off axis and reverberant sound are registered without coloration. Consequently, even distant placement of the microphone produces a very natural sound pickup.
