Schoeps Windscreens
« on: December 19, 2019, 08:58:25 PM »
Does the "Schoeps B5-BLACK" windscreen work with the MK22 cap and an active cable?

The depth provided by the CMC6 is not needed, screen sits on cap alone?

Or any recommendations for other windscreens?

Schoeps B5 screens are standard.  Work well on active and CCM set-ups.
More intended for indoor use.  But provide "some" wind protection outdoors.
IMO, a "must have" for Schoeps users.

B5D screens would be better for outdoors.

There is also a B1 screen that is more of a dust cover type screen.
Lowest profile screen.
Perfect if air movement is minimal.

These work well and the price is right.

Emphatic +1.

I don't have any Schoeps, but I own these windscreens and they work extremely well with my CM3s, which are very wind-sensitive.

The Schoeps B 5 isn't a windscreen; it's a "close talking guard" a/k/a a "popscreen". Its teardrop shape puts more foam in front of the capsule than all around it, to resist breath noise and popping sounds on plosive consonants. It can lessen the effect of mild wind or other moving air--particularly if the air is blowing toward the front of the microphone--and it's certainly better than nothing, but it's not what's recommended when protection from real wind is needed.

Professionals who record outdoors tend to invest substantially in windscreening equipment, because they have to be realistic: Wind noise commonly extends into the lower midrange and can't be filtered out without making the sound very thin. That's worse than the loss of some high frequencies and/or some directivity.

If you want real wind protection, please look at the Schoeps products with names starting with a W ("Windschutz") rather than a B ("Besprechungsschutz").

--best regards
