Product Code: V4 Ub | V4 Ug

The Schoeps V4 U is a studio vocal microphone that unites the outstanding technical characteristics typical of Schoeps with a timeless, classic design. The "look" of the V4 U is based on the Schoeps CM 51/3 microphone from 1951. But the V4 U is a thoroughly modern studio microphone. Its capsule, circuitry and mechanical construction are the result of extensive new development. It produces a warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response. The V4's newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressure level and excellent electromagnetic compatibility.

A unique 33 mm beveled collar around the diaphragm causes its directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a large-diaphragm microphone. Meanwhile, the superior acoustic qualities of a small-diaphragm capsule are maintained. The capsule is elastically suspended internally to reduce handling noise and other solid-borne sound. The head can be angled ± 20°.

The V4 U is available in either a Blue or Gray finish by itself and packaged in wooden case, or as a "V4 USM Set" which contains the microphone, a wooden case and the USM-V4 elastic suspension from Rycote.
