Designed to provide the basic accessories for shock-mounting a shotgun microphone atop a camera for indoor or outdoor environments, this B&H Kit features the Sanken CS-M1 moisture-resistant ultracompact shotgun microphone, a Rycote shoe/boompole shockmount, and a Rycote Classic-Softie windshield.

The kit addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a high-quality shotgun microphone setup that stays out of the frame while delivering professional mix-ready tone, low handling noise, and minimal wind noise. With its XLR output, phantom powering, low self-noise, and ultrahigh sensitivity, the CS-M1 mic is well suited for use with professional camcorders, multitrack field recorders, and portable audio recorders.

Sanken CS-M1 Moisture-Resistant Ultracompact Shotgun Microphone

Little more than half the length of the CS-1e, the Sanken CS-M1 moisture-resistant ultracompact shotgun microphone is designed for capturing dialogue, foley, and sound effects in sterling sound quality while always staying out of the shot. Compared to the CS-1e, the CS-M1 is advantageous when used on close-range sources that don't produce extended bass frequencies.

For independent and major film, television, and location recording gigs where you need a space-saving mic that remains a featherweight on boompoles or short-lens cameras, the CS-M1 is ideal. It's short interference tube and consistent off-axis tone also make it well suited for indoor use.

The microphone exhibits a supercardioid polar pattern at low and midrange frequencies, and transitions to a lobar pattern at high frequencies, allowing it to attenuate the 90° off-axis points by about 10 dB from 250 Hz to 2 kHz and by over 14 dB at 4 kHz.

Resists Humidity and Temperature Changes

When working outdoors in humid environments, moisture and condensation can cause many mics to fail. The CS-M1's rugged design and purpose-built components provide optimum resistance to humidity and hostile temperature changes, assuring dependable signal quality in a variety of environmental conditions.

Professional Sound Quality

The CS-M1 was built for use by independent videographers and demanding sound recordists alike. Its frequency response incorporates a rise in treble peaking at 9 kHz to increase intelligibility and a natural bass roll-off below 70 Hz to mitigate rumble. Its low self-noise of 16 dBA and ultrahigh sensitivity of -22 dB produce signal purity that's ready to be mixed.

Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 44 to 52 VDC phantom power, the CS-M1 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Ideal for Mounting on a Boompole or Camera

Since the CS-M1 isn't bundled with a mic clip or shockmount, consider these separately available options to mount the CS-M1 and prevent the transfer of vibrations to the microphone. The Rycote INV-6 shockmount is perfect for mounting the CS-M1 on a boompole or traditional mic stand, and you can get a 3/8"-16 to shoe adapter to allow attachment to a camera's shoe. The CS-M1's body features a matte black finish to prevent distracting visual reflections.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The CS-M1 has a urethane windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise indoors and outside, consider the Rycote 7cm Classic-Softie furry windshield (available separately).

Rycote 7cm Classic-Softie Windshield for Sanken CS-M1 Microphone

Ideal for film, television, and broadcast production, the Rycote 7cm Classic-Softie is a compact, lightweight microphone windshield offering acoustically transparent reduction of wind noise while protecting your mic from dust and dirt. The slip-on fur windshield is designed for the Sanken CS-M1, and it is also compatible with microphone diameters from 1.9 to 2.2cm including the Rode VideoMic NTG. The 7cm Classic-Softie is handmade in the United Kingdom.

Rycote INV-6 InVision Microphone Suspension for Stand and Boompole Mounting

The Rycote INV-6 InVision Microphone Suspension addresses the demand for a professional, Rycote-quality shockmount in the studio, conference settings and speech capturing applications.

The entire mount is comprised of two large InVision lyres with two clips that accommodate microphone bodies measuring 19 to 25mm in diameter. The lyres rest on a bar with a 3/8" threaded stand adapter at the base.

The stand adapter itself features an integrated cable clip for securing excess cable and minimizing noise. The unique lyre suspension is engineered with Hytrel for a virtually indestructible design that maximizes shock and noise suppression.
