Neumann MCM 114 SET HIGH STRINGS is a complete set for using the Miniature Clip Mic (MCM) system on the body of a violin, viola, mandolin or similar instrument.
We’ll get to the ‘clip’ part in a moment, but the start of this kit is undoubtedly the KK14 cardioid capsule, providing a “new level of tonal balance, more body, especially in the bass and mid-range, and transparency in the treble”. KK14 overcomes limitations of the electret principles and catches the signature sound of a wide range of acoustic sources. The strict quality control also guarantees an unheard level of tonal consistency. Each capsule sounds exactly the same and delivers the neutral Neumann-style sound, saving time during setup and EQ tuning especially when running multiple microphones simultaneously.
MC1 clip for quick, secure and safe positioning on violins (and more):
The self-adjusting spring mechanism and rubber coating ensure reliable attachment without damaging the instrument. The gooseneck holder rotates and locks in 45° increments to allow you to adjust the orientation. Clip span: 32 mm – 50 mm.
This MCM 114 SET HIGH STRINGS package will connect to a mixer (requiring +48v phantom power), or you can easily remove the MCM100 XLR adapter, and plug the cable straight into a Sennhieser EW-D or EW100 / 500 G4 transmitter. If you need to use a different wireless system, other cables are additionally available, including AC32 (Lemo 3 pin), AC33 (MicroDot), and AC34 (mini 4-pin XLR).
