MXL FR-304M overview

  • 1Description

The FR-304M from MXL is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone designed for use in location and Foley recording for TV, video, and film. Its supercardioid polar pattern maximizes sound rejection from the sides and rear, providing a highly directional focus also well-suited for recording dialog. Its 50 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response naturally attenuates sub-bass frequencies, minimizing rumble, handling noise, and low-end build-up.

It features an FET preamp and multiple power source options. The 3-position switch allows the FR-304M to be powered by phantom power, battery, or switched off for easy muting. A 1.5V AA battery yields up to 100 hours of power. The mic's aluminum body ensures durability, a necessity for use in location recording.

The included mic stand adapter and shoe mount allow easy mounting to a microphone stand or video camera. The XLR output allows connection to most microphone preamps. A foam windscreen is supplied to reduce wind noise in outdoor environments.
