Designed as a complete, high-grade microphone setup for location recording in demanding film work, broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), and field production applications, this B&H Kit eliminates the guesswork in configuring a shotgun microphone system that delivers pristine quality and low noise for a variety of challenging recording environments.

It features the Sennheiser MKH 416-P48U3 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone, the Rycote Windshield Kit 4 all-inclusive modular windshield, suspension, pistol grip, and windjammer system, a cabled 9' graphite boompole, and a long XLR cable to provide you with everything necessary for capturing mix-ready audio for video, film, and sound design applications.

Sennheiser MKH 416-P48U3 Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone

Achieve superb audio capture in demanding conditions for your next professional film, TV, or location recording with the Sennheiser MKH 416-P48U3 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone. Mix-ready sound quality is provided by its sharp directivity, low noise, and strong output. Plus, there are no controls to worry about; the MKH 416-P48U3 delivers the reliability you need for high-pressure gigs.

The microphone exhibits a hypercardioid polar pattern at low to midrange frequencies and transitions to a lobar pattern in high frequencies, allowing it to attenuate 125 Hz to 2 kHz by approximately 10 dB at the 90° off-axis points. Your dialogue, foley, and sound effects can be recorded with full dynamics and clarity, thanks to the MKH 416-P48U3's wide frequency response, enhanced consonant articulation, and high SPL handling.

Performs in Adverse Environmental Conditions

When your work takes you outdoors, you're bound to encounter humidity and condensation, which can cause many mics to fail. The MKH 416-P48U3's RF condenser design makes it highly immune to moisture, allowing you to reliably capture high-quality audio in normal and adverse environmental conditions.

Professional Sound Quality

The MKH 416-P48U3 was engineered with the experienced professional in mind. Its 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response incorporates a gentle rise from 5 to 15 kHz to increase intelligibility, and a natural bass roll-off to mitigate rumble. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and high sensitivity of -32 dB enable studio-worthy signal purity without requiring noise reduction and gain boosting in postproduction.

Phantom Powered

The MKH 416-P48U3 boasts a transformerless and fully floating balanced output for optimal signal integrity. Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 44 to 52 VDC phantom power, the MKH 416-P48U3 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 Boompole Mounting

The MKH 416-P48U3's metal body features a matte black finish to prevent distracting visual reflections. Mount the MKH 416-P48U3 directly on a stand or boompole using the supplied MZQ 100 clip. Alternatively, place the MKH 416-P48U3 in the separately available Sennheiser MZS 20-1 combination shockmount, pistol grip, and stand adapter to prevent the transfer of vibrations to the microphone.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The MKH 416-P48U3 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Sennheiser MZH 60-1 furry windshield (available separately).

Rycote Windshield Kit 4 - Complete Windshield and Suspension System

The Rycote Windshield Kit #4 is a complete modular microphone windshield system including the Rycote modular suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and necessary extensions. It can be used with the Rode NTG4+ shotgun microphone to provides optimum protection against wind. In addition, the windshield kit is a useful solution for those who do not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.

Each custom configured system will include the correct combination of suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and extensions (whenever necessary) to accommodate the size requirements for use with your specific microphone.

Complete Kit Solution

The Windscreen Kit includes all that is needed for complete set up and use. Each kit includes the necessary modular suspension mount, windshield, windjammer and extensions.

Hytrel Plastic Construction

A material called Hytrel is used on the end rings and shield. The material aids in creating the "dead" space necessary for quiet operation.

Interlocking Ends

Modular locking end rings provide quick and easy replacement of dented ends and modular extensions.

K-Tek KP9CCR 9' KlassicPro Graphite 6-Section Boompole with Internal XLR Coiled Cable, Side Exit

The KP9CCR 9' KlassicPro Graphite 6-Section Boompole with Internal XLR Coiled Cable, Side Exit from K-Tek features a removable headpiece for cable reconfiguration without soldering. The top attachment is a 3/8" male thread that includes a coiled cable with a KlassicPro right angle connector and a bottom male 3-pin XLR with a side exit. This boompole can be used as a solution for Film, Broadcast TV, Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Electronic Field Productions, (EFP), and other field recording applications.

The KP9CCR boompole measures 31.5" to 9.3' in length. The cable can be removed or installed without soldering and transformed to various configurations including uncabled, coil cabled, straight cabled, or with a transmitter at the top or the bottom (available separately). Gone are the soldered and sealed poles of the past. After removing a standard sized set screw, the headpiece simply threads on and off the tube smoothly. The modular system allows for quick transformations and eliminates the need for a completely new system just for a cabling change.

The cable kits are built with a high-quality coiled cable that features a low-profile, right-angle connector and incorporates thick gauge wiring and aluminum shielding. This makes it stronger and protected from radio frequency (RF) interference. Also, the connector is small, light, serviceable, and made with a Neutrik connector at its base.

The KP9CCR uses a modified collett with a thicker and smoother surface, allowing for more subtle, gradual extension of each section. Replacing the dimples with oval exterior divets and improving the finish means the pole has a better grip and smoother feel when opening and closing each collar. The boompole is hand-burnished to diffuse handling noise.

Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20', Black)

The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. The 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables and helps prevents external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
