CCM 2S

Compact Microphone

Properties

  • omnidirectional pattern
  • slight high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at moderate recording distances
  • for a very wide range of recording applications
  • often preferred for spaced stereophony and Decca Tree arrangements

Order number

  • No. 121011 CCM 2 L (standard Lemo version)
  • No. 121012 CCM 2 U (fixed cable version with XLR)

Description

The CCM 2S exhibits a slight high-frequency emphasis for frontal sound incidence, with only a slight rolloff of high frequencies off axis and in the reverberant sound field.

The frequency response characteristic of the CCM 2S falls between that of the CCM 2 and the CCM 2XS, making this microphone suitable for a wide range of applications.

Practice

The CCM 2S has proven particularly useful in two- and three-microphone stereo arrays, where its placement near the reverberation radius of the sound field presents a sonically balanced pickup favored by many recording engineers. This model has become our most popular pressure transducer.

For spaced microphone (A/B) stereo recording and especially the Decca Tree method, KA 40 accessory spheres are recommended.
