Zoom H4n

The Zoom H4n Handy Recorder picks up where the H4 left off and adds additional features to an already popular audio recorder. Ideal for recording interviews, lectures, rehearsals, meetings and more, this palm-sized unit packs the ability to record up to 4 channelsof audio at greater than CD quality. The H4n features onboard true X/Y stereo microphones to pick up clear, natural sound without phase shifting. The mics can be rotatedto select a 90° or 120° recording pattern for terrific versatility. Notes on my zoom h4n: It is a well-worn/loved piece of equipment- the buttons on the front (play, stop etc) are somewhat worn so they are difficult to read. Therefore, may not be the best choice if you are unfamiliar with the recorder. It works as if new functionally, however.

I was in a bind and needed to rent equipment quickly and at the last minute, and KitSplit was perfect!! Everything went really well with renting Kristina's video kit, everything was in excellent condition and conveniently packed in a great bag! She was extremely quick about responding and setting up the rental, and gave me a quick rundown on her typical setup which was really helpful!

What a wonderful service, I would absolutely recommend KitSplit and intend on using it for future equipment needs!
