Decca Tree Set

Complete Set for Recording with a Decca Tree

Features

The Decca Tree Set consists of:

  • three microphones for Stereo Recording with a "Decca Tree"
  • sphere attachments
  • miniature cable hangers

Order number

  • No. 129001 Decca Tree Set 2S
  • No. 129002 Decca Tree Set 2H
  • No. 129006 Decca Tree Set CMC 1L + MK 2S
  • No. 129007 Decca Tree Set CMC 1L + MK 2H

Description

The Decca Tree Set 2H consists of the following items:

  • 3 * No. 121009: Compact Microphone CCM 2H
  • 2 * No. 191701: Matching incl. certificate
  • 3 * No. 169001: KA 40, sphere attachment

The Decca Tree Set CCM 2S contains three CCM 2S (No. 121011) instead of the CCM 2H.

The Decca Tree Set CMC 1L + MK 2S contains three CMC 1 L (No. 132012) and three MK 2S (No. 131011) in place of the CCM 2H.

The Decca Tree Set CMC 1L + MK 2H contains three CMC 1 L (No. 132012) and three MK 2H (No. 131009) in place of the CCM 2H.

Practice

The Decca Tree is a triangular arrangement of three omnidirectional microphones. The microphones should be placed at least 1.5 m apart to reduce crosstalk and excessive correlation at low frequencies.

Often the microphones of a Decca Tree must be suspended from above. Therefore, the Decca-Tree set is equipped with compact CCM microphones or with a CMC 1 L amplifier and capsule. The KA 40 accessory mounting spheres cause increased directivity between 1 and 4 kHz, which in turn increases the differences among the signals picked up by each...

The KA 40 accessory mounting spheres cause increased directivity between 1 and 4 kHz, which in turn increases the differences among the signals picked up by each microphone. The M 50 microphones used in the original Decca Tree (1950s) were built on this same principle.

Variants & Options

Instead of the CCM microphones, microphones consisting of a CMC 1 L amplifier and an MK capsule are also suitable. The Decca Tree sets can alternatively be ordered in this modular form.
