At 21.22" long, Audio-Technica's new BP4071L is among the longest shotgun microphones on the market today. Originally developed at the request of broadcast professionals, this microphone boasts an extremely narrow polar pattern, excellent rejection from the sides and rear of the microphone, along with crisp, intelligible audio reproduction.
It offers switchable low-frequency roll-off and a 10dB pad, and comes generously equipped with a stand clamp, windscreen, and case.
Did You Know?
Many top record producers, when recording vocals, will use a dynamic mic for up close vocals and a heavily compressed shotgun mic about five feet away. It's true! The dynamic mic not only captures part of the final sound, but is also useful for giving the artist something to focus on, keeping a fairly consistent position relative to the shotgun mic. Have a shotgun mic on hand for your next vocal session....it could be the goldmine you've been seeking.
