Sanken CS-2 overview

  • 1Description

The CS-2 Mono Shotgun Microphone from Sanken features a 4.72" (120mm) long acoustic tube in a standard 9.84" (250mm) body, resulting in sharp directivity and rich, natural sound. A "High Boost" frequency switch is featured for replacing some of the presence and high frequencies that are lost while using windscreens. The CS-2's long range pick up and pristine sound quality make it a favorite for motion picture audio, broadcasts, sporting events, interviews and more.

Long range and rich, natural sound
Sanken's proprietary rectangular capsule results in super sharp directivity
High-boost switch automatically compensates for the attenuation of high frequencies when the mic is used with a windscreen/windjammer for outdoor use

    Sanken CS-2 reviews

    CS-2 Mono Shotgun Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnifique, natural quality! I my typical work environment is usually sound mixing from indie short films to corporate shoots. I needed a decent upgrade and, dayumn, this mic was a great medium!! It captures VERY natural sound when it comes to dialogue. Picking up on sounds for field recording and ambience is a plus as well, even though it's a short shotgun it does carry across a pretty decent distance. Side and rear rejection isn't all too bad, better than what you'd get with an average under 1k mic. Nice and rugged, compact build. No disappointments here! Worth the investment, especially when you're looking to meet near other expensiv-O shotgun mic w/o your pocket hating your guts for overbearing it's limits ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have already I had one Sanken CS-2 and two Rhodes. The Sanken is so clear it does not mix well with the Rhodes so I bought a second. Best mic I have ever used. I use it as a second channel to give me redundancy.
