Sennheiser MKH40

Well established small diaphragm mic in RF technology

  • since 1962 Sennheiser is the leading manufacturer of condenser microphones in Radio-Freqency technology
  • the MKH40 (cardioid) was the first of a newly developed generation of RF microphones in the mid 80s. It followed MKH20 (omni), MKH30 (eight) and MKH50 (supercardioid)
  • extremely low distortion + exceptionally low inherent self-noise
  • approximately linear frequency response results in a powerful bass (which can be alleviated with a bass roll-off) and rounded, smooth treble
  • a slightly darker sound than e.g. Schoeps CMC6 + MK4
  • 2 items for hire (X/Y and ORTF stereo possible). For recording with MS stereo we offer also one MKH30
  • manufacturing period: since 1985

Favourite applications: standard microphone for classical recordings, particularly for grand piano, strings (violins, violas) and woodwinds. Also well suited for overhead, snare, percussion, room and guitar am
