Available exclusively through B&H, the Deluxe Shotgun Microphone Kits are designed to provide field audio engineers with a complete system that delivers improved sonics and lighter components. All Deluxe Shotgun kits are configured to satisfy seasoned videographers and engineers who desire improved performance over entry level microphones and accessories.

The Sennheiser MKH-416 is the featured shotgun microphone in this kit. As standard in all Deluxe Kits, a universal shockmount, light weight boom pole with bag, universal hand grip, short and long right angled XLR cables are all included to provide the user with everything necessary for capturing audio for video, film and field production 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
    High sensitivity
    Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
    Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
    Matt black all-metal body
    Increased directivity

  • Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shock Mount for Camera Shoes and Boompoles

    The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal hand-grips.

  • Auray WSS-2018 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones - (18cm)

    The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshields deliver superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

    This WSS-2018 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 18cm and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm-thick simulated rabbit fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear wind protection.

    When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4-25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

    In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2018 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Rode, Sennheiser, Sanken, Sony and others.

    The WSS-2018 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable - 20' (6.1 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.

  • Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip

    The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

    In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.
