Sennheiser MKH 30 P48 Bi-Directional Condenser Microphone


Owner Notes:

This is THE gold standard figure-8 microphone for Mid-Side stereo recording. Amazingly low self-noise and ideal for capturing subtle ambiences.

Pairs excellently with any microphone in the MKH 40/50/60 or 800 series for stereo field recording. Includes a case, foam windscreen and two specialized shock mounts.

Official description from Sennheiser:

RF condenser microphone with figure-of-eight pick-up pattern. Particularly suited to soloists and small instrumental groups. Can also serve as an 'S' microphone in MS stereo applications as well as a support microphone.

Features
- Microphone with figure 8 pick-up pattern
- Highly symmetrical and frequency-independent pick-up pattern
- High rejection of lateral sounds
- Wide, flat frequency response
- Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
- Switchable roll-off filter to compensate for proximity effects at a distance of approx. 0.5 m
- Switchable pre-attenuation
