Compact, Short Shotgun Condenser Microphone

Overview

ZOOM IN
for theaters, houses of worship, film and TV productions

The C568B professional small condenser capsule combines high directivity and a wide frequency range. It is a perfect tool for theater, sound reinforcement and film/TV applications. Due to its compact and lightweight design, the C568B is ideal for camera-mount use.

Below 500Hz, it functions as a hypercardioid microphone; above 500Hz, the acoustic interference tube introduces increasing directivity. A switchable 12dB/octave 120Hz bass roll-off filter effectively suppresses impact and wind noise. The C568B's rugged, all-metal body contains the built-in pre-amp, which requires 9-52V phantom power. The package includes a special foam windscreen as well as a stand adapter.
