Echoschall Berlin rents small diaphragm microphones from the manufacturers Schoeps, Neumann and Sennheiser. In this segment, we are the only rental company in Germany to offer the Neumann tube models KM53, KM54 and KM56, which deliver outstanding results especially for the recording of grand piano, acoustic guitar and other plucked string instruments.
Of course, we also rent the two most common transistorized small-diaphragm condenser microphones, each with four specimen: the Neumann KM84 and the Schoeps CMC6 + MK4 (cardioid capsule). In some applications the Sennheiser MKH40 is a good alternative to the two with its strictly linear frequency response and the high attenuation of lateral sound incidence. All three are recommended for neutral recordings.
