Surface

KNOWLEDGE BASE

The surfaces of the SCHOEPS Colette- and CCM series microphones are available in standard version with a grey NEXTEL® finish. Nickel finish and other individual designs and colors can also be made on request. For the CMIT series blue color is standard, an anthacite-gray and other custom colors can be ordered as well. For the V4, the standard color is blue or gray and you can also choose a custom color here.

The NEXTEL® coating (http://www.nextel-coating.com/) is characterized by an inconspicuous, matte surface that hardly reflects any light. This is especially interesting for film and video applications where the microphone should remain as unobtrusive as possible. The surface is particularly scratch-resistant and abrasion-resistant. As a result, microphones from the Colette and CCM series look good even after frequent use. SCHOEPS was the first company to use this coating in the microphone sector in the mid-1970s, before other manufacturers adapted this method in the following decades.

Since 2008, the lettering, logos and symbols on all SCHOEPS microphones and amplifiers have been laser engraved. As a result, it is now possible to apply individual customer engravings, including graphics, to the microphones for an additional charge.
