The black Rode NTG3B RF-Bias Shotgun Microphone and Auray Fur Windshield Kit from B&H is geared for professional audio capture in outdoor environments. It is ideal for professional applications such as film, video, broadcast TV, and more.
The B&H kit features a black Rode NTG3B RF-Bias condenser shotgun microphone that is powered by 48V phantom power, and the Auray WSS-2018 professional fur windshield that reduces wind noise up to 40 dB. Also included in the kit are a mic clip, a pop filter, an aluminum storage cylinder, and a padded zip case for transporting the microphone.
Rode NTG3B Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone (Black)
Capture broadcast-quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the black Rode NTG3B moisture-resistant shotgun microphone. Professional-level features such as low-noise circuitry, upgraded immunity to radio-frequency interference, and minimal handling noise reduce the need to repair and restore audio in postproduction.
The NTG3B's high sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG3B delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing attenuation of low bass frequencies. Its switch- and dial-free design lets you set up quickly and focus on the sound instead of fiddling with various mic settings. The solid brass housing is both durable and lightweight, and its anti-glare finish prevents reflections in the shot.
Designed to Withstand Adverse Environmental Conditions
The combination of the NTG3B's 10" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis directionality with maximum rejection behind the mic. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and highly sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
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.
