MPR Says: “Long Shotgun Mic”

“Long version of the classic shotgun mic, with switchable high-pass and low-pass filter. Excellent off-axis (lateral and rear) attenuation. Free of coloration. The KMR 82 is a shotgun microphone with a high directivity that remains within the acceptance angle independent of the frequency.”

Product Overview:

In principle, Neumann shotgun microphones use a combination of a pressure gradient transducer and an interference tube. If the wavelength of the frequency is longer than the tube length, the microphones work as pressure gradient transducers. At higher frequencies they operate as interference transducers for lateral sound. Off axis sound sources are picked up with reduced level, but without coloration. Therefore, the microphones are well suited to record individual instruments of an orchestra. The pickup areas of several shotgun microphones may even overlap as, for example, during recordings on a large stage, without causing any problem.
