Here are two CPM1Cs mounted in a (delrin?) bar.

So, flipping the prior idea around, could the cpm1c be used as an alternative to active cables/pfa's? Seem pretty compact.

last time i checked, preamps are not sold separately, youd be in for some b9 caps as a package

The CMP1C is very compact, in a way, that it is only slightly longer than the head part of active cable. Easier in use as only add a capsule, you get a ready to use microphone.

It could be sold separately. Only not on the direct sales link. Have to send via PayPal invoice.

Interesting. What would be the price in USD for a CMP1C with 2 meter cable?

The mics  (b9) with front firing  and body r only 2 3/4".  The cmp1c's  with  caps r probably just a tad shorter.  Now B9 offers multiple bodies, 2/4/6 etc all wired together too one multi-pin xlr.  KILLER  if u run multiple pairs of mics.  Nice clean runs with easy clean up.  Like having a x4 or x6 KCY.  Don't know y more peeps don't check these products out.  Schoeps caps r compatible.   Nicky C showed me what to check before i tried things out.  I tried to loan my b9's when first purchased other peeps to check out but never had any intrest.  Only own the bodies now. Dstaz on here owns the hyper caps that came with.  They sounded great!!   Any schoeps user that always wanted a hyper /wide or omni but didn't want to spend  the $$$ on something that doesn't get used as much, these r worth the buy.  The mini shot guns look sick also!

^ That's a nice options for tapers.

I'm back to considering picking up one of the fig-8's for the center M/S position in my rig, which should make for an upgrade over the Naiant X8S fig-8's I'm currently using.. once we get back to taping again.  X8S is inexpensive and has performed well for me in that role, yet uses back to back cardioid elements with some spacing between them (about an inch or so) and I'd like to compare using a true single-diaphragm bidirectional in its place.

I'd love to try the B9 super/hyper as Mid, yet need the pair to fit into a single Shure A81WS windscreen.  For that reason I'm most likely to retain use of the very small diameter DPA 4098H as Mid which can sit directly atop the 8 without greatly increasing its diameter.  If there was someway to position the fig-8 capsule immediately behind and in line with the Mid capsule I'd most certainly try the B9 super/hyper as Mid, or the short-gun (which would require a longer windscreen, but of the same diameter, which is the constraint).
