The Schoeps BLM 03 C is connected through its fixed cable to a Colette CMC microphone amplifier, thus resulting in a complete microphone. All known properties of the BLM 03 C are identical to those of the BLM 3.
It is recommended to use the BLM 03 C when the BLM 3 is too large (for example when recording for TV or film) or too heavy (for example when gluing to the roof inside a vehicle or under the lid of a grand piano).
Since the BLM 03 C includes active electronics, it is not compatible with other active accessories such as RC, KC.
- can be placed unobtrusively
- preferred uses: on speaker tables, altars, in a grand piano, or as a room microphone
- only 80 mm in diameter
- cable length: 5 m / 16.40 ft
The small dimensions of the BLM 03 C in combination with the matte gray Nextel surface enable a particularly discreet placement. Even completely invisible placement is possible if the microphone is hidden under a tablecloth made of lightweight fabric.
Due to its small size, however, it should be noted that the BLM 03 C should definitely rest on a sufficiently large, sound-reflecting surface. When recording a panel discussion, a table may be sufficient. For most music recordings a larger area is recommended.
The BLM 03 C can also be mounted in a grand piano with the lid open or closed.
