The symmetrical transducer design of the Sennheiser MKH-30 Micrphone produces an unusually wide and smooth frequency response.

Particularly suited to soloists and small instrumental groups, the MKH-30 can also serve as an "S" or side microphone in MS stereo applications. As a general support microphone, it is particularly useful in the effective suppression of sounds from adjacent sound sources. The MKH-30's transformerless output has inherently low noise and distortion, and it also features switchable roll-off filtering and pre-attenuation. The MKH-30 uses +48V Phantom Power, and is finished in a black anodized metal casing.
