RØDE BLIMP MK II
At just 210 mm and 68 g, this mic is one of the shortest and lightest shotgun condenser microphones available. At the same time, it offers impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality.
The mic is immune to RF emission and the 19 mm condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. It also withstands use in very humid environments with ease.
The 4017B Shotgun Microphone features two onboard filters.
They are activated via an ingenious switching ring design. With a simple twist of two sturdy rings, engineers can implement a high-frequency boost that adds a 4 dB shelf at 8 kHz. This compensates for hi loss when used with windjammers. A first-order bass roll-off below 120 Hz minimizes handling and wind noise. A permanent third-order high-pass filter at 50 Hz effectively removes unwanted low frequency disturbance from handling and wind noise.
Designed for a broad range of applications, the 4017 Shotgun Mic is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast / ENG / film booming and even studio recording environments.
This condenser microphone capsule is part of the flexible pencil microphones.
It is equipped with a highly-directional hypercardioid pickup pattern; obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection.
The Shotgun Mic Capsule is immune to RF emission and the 19 mm condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. It withstands use in very humid environments with ease.
It delivers clear sound even when used in very hot or cold areas of the world such as the desert and the arctic.
