Jecklin Disk and Schneider Disk microphone mounts

Jecklin Disk

Stereo recordings use two (or more) microphones. There are many ways to position two microphones to get a realistic stereo image. Entire books have been written about the many different mic positioning techniques for stereo.

One of the more recent developments is Juerg Jecklin's "Optimal Stereo Signal" technique. This technique uses two omnidirectional microphones spaced 160mm (approximately 6 inches) apart, separated by an acoustically absorbent flat disc that is 300mm (approximately 12 inches) across. This microphone mount has come to be called the "Jecklin Disk."

You can find Jorg Jecklin's german-language tech paper on the Jecklin Disk here.



Schneider Disk

A variant on the Jecklin Disk is the Schneider Disk. The Schneider Disk adds a foam covered sphere to the center of the disk, better mimicing the human head's absorption characteristics.

How do you choose between them? Both provide excellent stereo imaging when played back over speakers. The Schneider Disk provides a slightly better approximation of a binaural recording when played back over headphones. We recommend the Schneider Disk for chamber groups, rock bands and small choirs. We recommend the Jecklin Disk for larger orchestra and choirs.

The microphone clips on both Disks are designed to accept microphones having a 21mm diameter. They will accept slightly larger microphones too.

CSB microphones and accessories have been sold to customers all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, England, Scotland, Norway, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Serbia, South Africa and many others.
