Rycote are renowned for designing and manufacturing quality windshields and microphone accessories. Using their knowledge of audio, Rycote have created this range of ‘high-quality’ shotgun microphones.
Note, the microphones are supplied only with box and don’t include a clip nor foam. Please see below for compatible accessories.
HC-15 Short Shotgun Microphone
HC-15 shotgun microphone has been designed for use in cinema, ENG, TV, field recording, and live broadcast. The back electret condenser microphone has a hypercardioid pickup pattern and a frequency range of 50Hz to 20kHz. The microphone features active in-line filtering to protect against RF interference, along with gold-plated Neutrik XLR connector for optimum transfer.
