Sanken Microphones has announced the introduction of a new shotgun microphone, the CS-2. The newest model in Sanken’s comprehensive shotgun microphone line offers extended reach in a standard length mic via the company’s unique gradient tube length and proprietary rectangular diaphragm design.
The CS-2 achieves its sharp directivity with a 4.75-inch long acoustic tube in a standard 10-inch length and 3/4-inch diameter body. As a result, a rich natural tone is produced throughout the frequency spectrum, emulating the operation of much longer shotgun microphones.
The CS-2’s light weight makes it ideal for camera-mounted or boom pole operations and suitable for a wide range of applications, such as outdoor location sound, interviews, sports, drama, and variety shows. A new Sanken feature, the “high boost switch,” compensates for the attenuation of high frequencies when the mic is used with a windscreen/windjammer for outdoor use. As a result, the full, natural sound is maintained.
An external brass chassis markedly increases durability, while the PPS (Poly-gold Phenylene Sulfide) diaphragm membrane provides optimum resistance to changes caused by adverse temperature and humidity. The resulting sound is consistent throughout the day in a wide variety of environments and changing climatic conditions.
The new Sanken CS-2 is available through selected Sanken Field Microphone Dealers. For more info about Sanken, visit distributor plus24’s website.
