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
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.
Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics (Standard Hole)
The standard hole Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is ideal for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG and more.
The 18cm Super-Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. It's robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. Also, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.

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.
Caged type contact and improved ground contact.

Auray Neoprene Boompole Bag for 34" Closed Boompole with Shotgun Mic and Softie
The Auray Neoprene Boompole Bag for 34" Closed Boompole with Shotgun Mic and Softie is a case designed to hold up to a 34" closed boompole with shotgun microphone, softie, and shock mount. Its interior end cap is strengthened to protect the bag from punctures. It features a zipper closure with protective interior lining to prevent snags and scratches. The bag is built with an interior pocket for accessories that opens or closes with hook and loop fasteners. An adjustable shoulder strap is included with a nametag holder.
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.
Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics (Standard Hole)
For mics 0.7 - 0.9" (19 - 22 mm) in diameter
For mics slots no further than 7.1" (18 cm) from the front of the mic
Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter.
For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 18 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 18 cm from the front of the mic.
The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm).
