Schoeps CCM Cable
« on: June 10, 2014, 02:59:12 PM »
I hope this is not an entirely idiotic question. I have Schoeps CCM 4 microphones that I purchase used on TS a few months back. I started using them last month and have a system that is working for me at the moment. Is it possible to shorten cable length? The length of the cables are far longer than I need for my customary use. Are there any risks I need to know about? If it is possible, can you point me in the direction of a reliable service provider to do the work?

Redding Audio can shorten them for you.

Is it a Lemo cable or is the cable terminated into the mic?

Terminated into the mic.

I'd contact redding audio to make sure they can do it in house (I am pretty sure they can)

You may also consider Vark audio - but redding is the Schoeps distributor for the US so you can't go wrong

Can't you just shorten them from the XLR end, no electronics in the ccm xlr is there?

Thanks for the suggestions. Redding Audio is a thirty minute drive from my house. So I am going to see if they will let me bring the mics in to avoid shipping issue. If that is not an option, or the turnaround time is too long, I will probably take darktrain up on his offer.

If Redding can't do it, I highly recommend Darktrain (Robb), as will numerous others on this forum.

Following up a long time later--I'd just like to note that all the circuitry of a CCM is located in the (miniature) microphone body itself; none of it is in the cable or the XLR output connector.

There are two general types, the CCM-L and the CCM-U. The "U" type has a permanently attached XLR-3 output cable while the "L" type has a Lemo connector on the microphone, and the cable is basically an adapter from Lemo to XLR. Of those two, the "L" type allows the use of a number of special accessories and for people who do remote recording with portable gear, I would think that it would be almost universally preferred.

--best regards
