Up for consideration is an excellent sounding Schoeps CMC56 mic. This it the last of the 3-pattern Small Diaghaphrm Condensers, as these mics were too expensive to make, and even at the selling price of $2850, they were actually losing money. This capsule was serviced in Jan 2005 by Schoeps, and it has the lastest MK6 gaskets. So here is a rare opportunity to get a recently serviced CMC56 at more than 50% off!!!
You can read the full description on the MK6 capsule from the Schoeps brochure, here, and 1270 dpi hi-resolution photos of this mic are here, and hi-res photos of the case are here.

This mic was originally sold under the Studer name as a SKM5U, but it is made by Schoeps and is 100% identical to the Schoeps CMC5 body with a MK6 capsule. It was brought up to spec by the former owner in Jan., 2005, with only light use since. Schoeps Repair has verified the capsule was serviced and is the latest MK6 design with the newest rubber gaskets and other parts to insure long life.
This beauty of this multi-pattern mic is that you basically get 3 different mics in one package, and you can change patterns on the fly. The MK6 has a Figure 8 pattern which is very similar to the $1,094 MK8 (see chart); the MK6 Cardioid pattern is very similar to the $1,150 MK4V (see chart); and then you get the omni pattern thrown in for free. A new CMC6 mic with the 3 separate capsules will run you a total $3,845, so this mic saves you about $2,500!!!
Here are a few quick, 1-take MP3 sound files of Lucio Nunez 10-string Classical Harp Guitar, to give you an idea of what to expect. These MP3 files have no compression, EQ or reverb
-- just straight signal, tracked into a Presonus ADL 600 preamp to
an Apogee Rosetta 200 A/D converter into Logic. The mic pattern is Cardioid.
