By this time the company had hired two more employees and had nearly finished developing its first condenser microphone capsule − a small pressure transducer with flat response across the entire audible range.

To support this work, Schoeps built and leased out a small series of high-quality tape recorders. These were used mainly by record companies, but two were installed at conservatories of music. For use with those recorders, and as a demonstration platform for the new capsule, some two dozen amplifiers were built.
