Schoeps OFTF Mount Tube


Rare ORTF Prototype Tube


Up for consideration is a vintage Schoeps ORFT Tube and origninal case for the M221F, CMT30F, and CMMT30F series of microphones. Originally, this tube was made for French Broadcast ORTF as part of a fixed mount ORFT setup, similar to the one here. This is a unique chance to pick up a rare piece of Schoeps / OFTF recording history!!!

This tube mount is in fairly good cosmetic condition. I recently tested it with a CMT30FNU mic and the tube still fits perfectly, with no deterioration to the plastic end pieces, and the mic body is still easily positioned within the holding tube. The tube originally came with some elastic, which is no longer available, and Schoeps Repair is no longer able to restore this mount.

This mount 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 tube was made for the M221F, CMMT30F, and CMMT30F mics. It will work with any SDC of the same diameter. I think it will hold a CMC and CMT, but I'm not sure. It could also possibly still be converted into a useable spider mount, or fixed mount.

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 ORFT Tube and original case. No microphone or any other accessories are included.
