The Tascam DR-40 Street Interviewer Portable Recorder Pack is a B&H Kit designed for the street interviewer and presented in a very travel-friendly form. The DR-40 provides professional-level features and flexibility in a compact and durable design that's ideal for use in the field.
For situations where an external handheld microphone is preferred, the Audio-Technica AT8004L performs admirably with its internally shock-mounted element that minimizes handling noise. The built-in microphones of the DR-40 can also be utilized simultaneously to record general ambiance for example, audio that can be later mixed to taste in post.
A pair of headphones, an extra memory card, a carry bag, foam windscreen and microphone cable round out a very attractive portable audio recording package for capturing street interviews.
