The Senal MC24-EL is a battery-/phantom-powered long shotgun microphone that delivers broadcast-quality sound in the studio or on location. It maximizes the rejection of sound coming from the sides and rear of the mic and can be used as a directional microphone to capture full, rich, natural-sounding audio for speech and dialog.

Thoughtfully designed and engineered for demanding video productions, ENG, and broadcast applications, the MC24-EL delivers quality sound, and its rugged brass frame ensures it is capable of withstanding the rigors of recording in the field or on the go.

The microphone features a high-grade condenser transducer that captures detailed and accurate sound. It has a broad frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz and delivers clear sound reproduction with full lows, present mids, and crisp highs. There is a selectable high-pass filter at 180 Hz that minimizes unwanted noise and rumble.

Furthermore, the microphone runs on 48V phantom power which is available from most professional video cameras, mixing boards, or recording devices, and runs on a single AA battery (over 400 hours) for those DSLRs, computers, and other devices where phantom power is not available. The mic is suitable for mounting on a boompole, a mic stand, or a camera, and includes a foam windscreen, a mic clip, and a 5/8" (mic stand thread) to 3/8" (boompole thread) adapter.

The microphone is covered with a matte-black rubberized coating that reduces handling noise and ensures trouble-free recordings when being operated. The finish also rejects unwanted light reflections. It is built with a gold-plated XLR connector and comes in a leatherette pouch.

Broadcast Sound Quality
Senal's MC24-EL shotgun microphone is designed for video production and broadcast applications. Its length is well suited for ENG, outdoor recording, and camera mounting.
Hypercardioid Polar Pattern
A hypercardioid polar pattern provides front-facing directivity and off-axis sound rejection. It is suitable when recording speech or dialog in noisy environments such as a convention floor or sporting event.
Battery or Phantom Power
The MC24-EL runs on 48V phantom power supplied by most professional video cameras, mixing boards, or recording devices. It can also be powered by one AA battery over 400 hours, which is ideal for recording to DSLR cameras, computers, and other devices that don't offer phantom power.
Brass Construction
The durable and solid construction ensures the microphone is capable of withstanding the rigors of recording in the field or on the go.
Rubberized Coating
The rubberized coating minimizes handling noise.
Matte Finish
The matte finish doesn't reflect light when shooting in the studio.
High-Pass Filter
The selectable high-pass filter rolls off unwanted low-frequency noise and rumble at 180 Hz and minimizes room noise when recording in environments with fans, air conditioners, blowers, or overhead lights.
Gold-Plated XLR Connector
The gold-plated XLR connector resists corrosion and ensures excellent signal transfer.
Foam Windshield, Mic Clip
A foam windshield is included to minimize wind noise and to protect the microphone from dust and debris. A mic clip is included for boompole or mic stand mounting.
