The Azden Special Edition SGM-PII is a high-performance shotgun microphone that operates via Phantom Power (11-52VDC) only. Designed to fit right into the microphone clamp/holder of today’s high performance cameras, the SGM-PII offers the same directional, quality sound as the popular and highly rated SGM-PDII. Where the SGM-PDII has a hard wired output cable the SGM-PII terminates with an XLR connector, allowing the use of any length high performance microphone cable. The SGM-PII offers super directional sound pick-up, wide response and low noise. Works perfectly with broadcast and prosumer cameras that supply phantom power. Includes shock mount holder with shoe and flocked foam windscreen.
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!
