Schoeps Elbow for M221F CMT30F


Rare ORTF Prototype elbow


Up for consideration is a very rare and completely unobtainium Schoeps Elbow for their M221F, CMT30F, and CMMT30F series of microphones. This screw-on elbow allows you to change the mic footprint to side-addressed as the situation requires. Originally, this elbow was made for French Broadcast ORTF as a fixed mount ORFT setup, as can be seen here. The new Schoeps GVC swivel elbow sells for $325, so here is your chance to pick up a collectable, historic, working OFTF prototype elbow and not even have to pay a premium!!!

This elbow is in excellent working condition and good cosmetic condition. I recently tested it with several CMT30FNU mics and capsules and there is absolutely no difference in terms of noise, output or sonics when using this elbow.

Aside from being an excellent working elbow, this also represents a piece of recording history. French Broadcast ORTF invented the ORTF recording technique -- most likely using Schoeps microphones -- and this was an early design solution by Schoeps to standardize the ORTF setup for the set of Schoeps mics and capsules they were using at the time. See here for more info.

This elbow works with the M221F, CMMT30F, and CMMT30F mics. It will not work with the M221a, M221b, CMMT30AF, CMT or CMC mics. If you are not sure, please feel free to ask a question.

USA shipping is $7.50 via FedEx Ground, with tracking, Insurance and Signature Confirmation. All sales are final, so please ask questions first. Guaranteed not to be DOA. I do accept PayPal. Thanks for looking. This auction is for one Schoeps Elbow. No microphone or any other accessories are included.
