Available exclusively through B&H, the Ultimate Shotgun Microphone Kits are designed to deliver the ultimate in professional audio recording for feature film, broadcast and field production. All Ultimate Shotgun kits are configured to satisfy the demands of veteran and professional engineers who require the very best in audio performance, handling and durability.
The Sennheiser MKH-416 is the featured shotgun microphone in this kit. As standard in all Ultimate Kits, a carbon fiber boom pole, Canare XLR cable and complete Rycote Windshield system are included to provide the user with everything necessary for capturing audio in professional applications.
Sennheiser 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
Rycote Windshield Kit 4 - Complete Windshield and Suspension System
The Rycote Windshield Kit #4 is a complete modular microphone windshield system including the Rycote modular suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and necessary extensions. It can be used with the Rode NTG4+ shotgun microphone to provides optimum protection against wind. In addition, the windshield kit is a useful solution for those who do not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.
Each custom configured system will include the correct combination of suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and extensions (whenever necessary) to accommodate the size requirements for use with your specific microphone.
Complete Kit Solution
The Windscreen Kit includes all that is needed for complete set up and use. Each kit includes the necessary modular suspension mount, windshield, windjammer and extensions.
Hytrel Plastic Construction
A material called Hytrel is used on the end rings and shield. The material aids in creating the "dead" space necessary for quiet operation.
Modular locking end rings provide quick and easy replacement of dented ends and modular extensions.
K-Tek K102CCR 5-Section Klassic Series Lightweight Boompole
The K-TEK K-102CCR Klassic Series Microphone Boompole features 5 telescoping sections, lightweight graphite construction, captive collet locking system and soft-touch rubberized collars with dimpled grip.
The rain resistant construction is also dent proof, and weighs just 1.542 lb for easy handling and portability. Eight layers of graphite also resist handling noise. The K-102CCR features an internally coiled cable and side-exit XLR connector at the base.
The K-102CCR features an internally coiled cable and side-exit XLR connector at the base.
The Klassic series poles feature graphite construction for lightweight, dent resistant handling and minimal noise.
The rubberized, dimpled grips stay firm even when wet.
Each section features easy locking due to the low-torque captive colette locking system.
Canare Star Quad (L-4E6S) Microphone Cable 25' (7.62 m)
The Canare Star Quad (L-4E6S) Microphone Cable 25' (7.62 m) is the premier Star Quad cable for all handheld microphone applications. This cable uses trusted Canare technology to give you the optimum in sound quality. Flexible, satin smooth to the touch and extra strong, this standard diameter, 21 AWG cable fits perfectly in all XLR-type audio connectors. Forty separate strands in each conductor eliminate breakage due to flexing. A cross-section of the cable shows four conductors arranged as two pairs in an "X" configuration. The result is a microphone cable that resists induced noise in the most severe environments.
Canare microphone cables utilize high conductivity, annealed copper wires, stranded to form flexible conductors and shields
