Senal MC24-EL overview

  • 1Description

The Senal MC24-EL is a hypercardioid, professional 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 high quality sound, and its rugged all 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 exceptional sound reproduction with full lows, clear and precise 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 boom pole, a mic stand or a camera, and includes a foam windscreen, a mic clip, and a 5/8 to 3/8" 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 professional 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 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 boom pole or mic stand mounting

    Senal MC24-EL reviews

    MC24-EL Battery or Phantom Powered Professional Condenser Shotgun Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy again, good quality for a reasonable price How many Shotguns does a guy need? I have two, really debated getting the third one, but I like this one as it has good build quality, good sound for a very reasonable price. My comparable mics are the AT 897 and the Sennheiser ME 66. Based on experience, I always want the battery option and overall, this mic simply delivers clean sound. It comes in a box with foam, so you will need a case for it, eventually I bought a case to carry the three shotgun mics that I use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT MICROPHONE! I have a couple of differentmicrophones laying around and I use this one the most. The microphone has great quality, I really like it for studio work. In fact I was testing this back and forth with my NTG-2 and this microphone ended up replacing my NTG-2 in my studio work. Really great for the price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So bad. Did I get a defective unit? Even with levels dialed up to 100 and standing 10 inches away, it barely registers -24db. When files are imported into audio editing tool for inspection, the sound quality is basically the same as an in-camera DSLR microphone! Using phantom power instead of battery improves pickup slightly, but I bought this model so I wouldn't have to rely on phantom power! Also annoyed with lack of on/off switch and power indicator lights.
    Date published: 2017-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic value I needed a mic for corporate-style talking head interviews. This is a really, really great sounding mic! I used it with a Tascam DR-60 MkII and it sounded very clean. Very low noise floor. It feels nice. The only thing I don't like it when you run it off battery power, you have to take the batter out. There's no battery switch.
    Date published: 2018-07-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, needs foam windscreen even indoors This shotgun mic has a very open sound with wide frequency response. I would advise using the foam windscreen (included) when direct-miking a speaker to avoid pops. It should not need it indoors when miked overhead on a boom pole unless there is air movement such as from a ventilating system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I definitely would. Really Great Mic. Did a lot of research before I bought this Mic. This Mic is comparable to the Rode NT2. Really love the sound, so clear.
    Date published: 2017-02-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great audio solution! Was worried about this purchase because I didn't see any information on them online, but very hapy with the purchase. Great sound quality!
