Audio Scope SG-5B

Battery or phantom-powered short shotgun microphone with XLR output


The Audio Scope SG-5B is a professional shotgun built for the rigors of field use.  It has a narrow pickup pattern and excellent off-axis rejection resulting in enhanced pickup from the front of the microphone.  Perfect for boom pole use or static mounted for broadcast, film or theater applications.
