The Sennheiser MKH-416 Pro Shotgun Pack is designed for professional audio recording on set and in the field. The kit consists of the Sennheiser MKH-416 Short Shotgun Microphone, an MZS 20-1 Pistol Grip for handling the microphone, an MZW60-1 Blimp Screen for reducing the effects of wind noise, and the MZH 60-1 Hairy Wind Cover to go around the blimp and further reduce the influence of high velocity wind noise. The microphone is attached to the shock mount of the pistol grip. The blimp then covers the shotgun microphone which in turn is surrounded by the hairy wind cover to complete the pack.
MKH-416 - Short Shotgun Interference Tube Microphone
Designed for recording audio in film, radio, and television the MKH 416 from Sennheiser is a short shotgun interference microphone optimized for outdoor applications. It offers excellent directional control in a compact design with high consonant articulation and rejection of feedback. The unit is highly immune to humidity because of its RF condenser design. It operates as a hypercardioid at low and medium frequencies with a lobar pattern above 2 kHz.
Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube
Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance
The RF-design yields low noise levels and high immunity to humidity and moisture
The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents
Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2 kHz approaches lobar pattern
Very low inherent self-noise
Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
Matt black all-metal body
MZS20-1 Combo Mount/Grip/Stand
Combination shock mount, pistol grip and stand adapter for ME-66 and ME-67 as well as MKH Series Microphones
Required for mounting in MZW "blimp" windscreen.
May be boom or stand mounted. Requires MZA-216 adapter (included).
Includes interchangeable mike clips for MKH-416/MKH-816, or MKH-20 through MKH-70
MZW 60-1 Blimp Windscreen
The MZW 60-1 Blimp Windscreen from Sennheiser is for the ME66/MKH-416/MKH-60 shotgun microphones. This windscreen requires the MZS 20-1 shockmount/pistol grip and provides suppression of wind noise when used for outdoor applications. Length is 17" ( 44 cm).
MZH60-1 - Wind Muff
Long hair wind muffs greatly reduce high velocity wind-noise when used with MZW series blimp windshields and MZS-20-1 pistol grip/shock mount. Requires MZW 60-1 "blimp" windscreen. (for ME-66, MKH-416/MKH-60)
