SCHOEPS BLM 03 C + CMC 6 Body Frequency Response and Polar Pattern
SCHOEPS BLM 03 C + CMC 6 Body Frequency Response and Polar Pattern
In a nutshell

Schoeps BLM 03 C is a PZM microphone. Schoeps microphones are very popular on TV stages and in radio studios; they have built their reputation there thanks to a large number of "active" accessories allowing many fittings and combinations. Their precision and their transparency have made them favorites for stereo pair recording. CMC 5/CMC 6 microphone preamps, which only differ in their powering, can be detached from MK series capsules via KC active cable (integrating FET) or via GVC swivel which allows the angle of a capsule to be adjusted on microphone amplifier. CMCx preamps have neither attenuator, nor low-cut filter.

Our recommendations

BLM 03 C omnidirectional pressure zone microphone ("PZM", pressure transducer) has a high sensibility because acoustic pressure on transducer baffle surface is doubled. For good bass response, it is necessary to mount the BLM 03 C on a plane surface whose dimensions are similar to the largest wavelength (lowest frequency) that one wants to pick up. BLM 03 C is popular with sound mixers for its discretion and tonal balance for concert piano recording.
