Sanken lavalier and condenser microphones

CS-3e Location and Studio Shotgun Microphone
Key Features

• Exceptional Off-axis Rejection
• Unique design combination of line mic array and second pressure gradient method
• Very sharp pinpoint directivity
• Provides rich human voice characteristics
The CS-3e stands out among shotgun microphones because it maintains directivity over an extremely wide frequency range, especially in the low frequencies. Because of its unique design, the CS-3e is an excellent choice for use in difficult applications, such as close-to-ceiling positions or locations near a noisy camera. Even in such challenging situations, the excellent side and rear rejection of the CS-3e helps to capture only the targeted dialogue without ambient reverberation problems. The CS-3e delivers sharp directional sound even in the lower frequencies. Sanken's original design results in a low proximity effect which facilitates working in a scene close-up and wide, while producing little change in sound character.
