Schoeps CMT30F

The CMT30f was made in 1965 especially for ORTF, the French broadcasting company.
The goal was to have compatibility with the capsules used with the previous wonderful M221.
As the CMT30 is a transistor microphone there is no need for a power supply. You get it. The downside of this microphone is that its self noise can be a bit too high for very quiet recordings. My units have been upgraded by Jean Marie Mallet and are now as quiet as my CMC. They give me the opportunity to use my 934c capsules.
