It is *NOT* an ME 40 - it's an MKE 40 - these are *very* different microphones with a huge price difference.

The ME 40 is a low budget cardioid tie mic. supplied with some ew radiomics and is pretty horrible (IMHO).

The MKE 40 is a professional cardioid tie mic that is very popular in mainland Europe - it is an excellent mic. and vastly superior to the cheapo ME 40.

I am quite surprised at you saying that, is it not the ME4 that is the cheap cardioid lav mic and the ME 40 is a shotgun capsule for the K3u modular system.

Anyway regardless of quality the MKE40 is still a goddamn ugly in vision mic and I have never ever seen one used on TV here in the UK.

[red face] Yes - you are partially right.

The ME 40 the cardioid head for the K3 system - the gun heads were the ME 80 and ME 88.

Yes - it *is* the ME 4 that is the cheapo cardioid.

I was so concentrated in getting across that the mic. pictured was the MKE 40, that I got the other bit wrong.

Oops

Yes, the MKE 40 is big and ugly compared to the miniature omni mics like the MKE 1, MKE 2 and the DPA 4060 - but it's a high quality cardioid and works well in acoustically unfavourable areas - which is why it is so popular with European TV stations.
