Vintage Schoeps CMT 30 w/ M934b

SOLD Excellent Condition FET mic w/Card/Omni Cap!!!

CMT 30

Up for consideration is a vintage Schoeps CMT 30 microphone in excellent condition. Both the CMT30 body and M934b capsule were serviced by Schoeps in 2009. Originally this mic was made for French Broadcast / RTF (Radio/Television France) as a FET version of the M221F tube mics. The mic sounds very similar to the famous M221, yet has no expensive AC701k tube to replace. The M934b capsule is skinned in mylar, which is more durable than the fragile nickel capsules on the M221. New, the current model Schoeps CMC 6 with the MK5 omni/card capsule sells for $2,290, so here is your chance to pick up a vintage, recently serviced mic with the famous M934b omni/card capsule at less than half price!!!

This mic is in excellent cosmetic condition, and like-new working condition, as both the capsule and the the amp were serviced by Schoeps in 2009.

* CMT 30 F Serial Number: 669
* Inscribed RTF
* Gold XLR
* Serviced by Schoeps 2009

* M934b Serial Number: 2678
* Inscribed RTF
* Polar Pattern: Omni / Cardioid
* New Phase Ring
* Serviced by Schoeps 2009

This mic has thread patterns that also work with the original M221 and M221F tube mic and the CMMT30F mics. It will NOT work with the M221a, M221b, CMT or the current CMC mics. If you are not sure, please feel free to ask a question.

This mic runs on 12V Phantom Power (not T-Power), but it works with standard 48V Phantom Power just fine -- but is NOT HOT-SWAPPABLE. You must power down the mic before removing or connecting it.
