Need XY Set Up (Schoeps)
« on: August 24, 2017, 11:52:10 AM »
I would like to start running my onstage Schoeps XY. I like the imaging when mixed with the board. I've been pointing the mics outside the drum kit (for Kimock) which works great but I'm ready for a change. What do I need to set up as XY?

You use full full CMC6/capsules - correct? You might get this guy to 3D print a solution for you

Yeah I'm running full bodies. Got rid of the actives years ago.
Thanks

So I just cancelled my order. They sent me an email saying that it's made with a 3D printer and is not intended for use. It's for decorative purposes only.

FWIW, my order confirmation of a different mount from the same seller said the same thing.  While it is made with a 3D printer, I suspect the "decorative use" language is just stock language to limit liability.  The mount I got feels very sturdy.

That's quite strange - all his mounts are 3D printed and many of us own his mounts

That's what my confirmation email says.  I wouldn't let that put you off ordering, but you know your needs better than anyone.

I just can't risk something going wrong, mainly with a warning like that. I have a 3D printer here. Not that I know how to make one.

Charlie thats a generic disclaimer because the overall site sells all sorts of 3D printed items.  I own five of his 3D printed mounts and many others own them also...

His email address is in a thread here somewhere and I believe he is a member. Let me see if I can his email

His name is Scott and he is a member. There is a lengthy thread about his mounts:

http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=170480.0


If you aren't comfortable with the idea that's fine but these are quite strong. Most of the ones I own are for actives so they just need to support  the capsules but I also own one for telefunkens (ORTF) and its also very solid.

Here is his profile you could PM him

Charlie:

I also have used his mounts for a long time. They're really good, and would trust them. Have no fear.
