  • Location and Studio Shotgun
  • Featuring Exceptional Off-axis Rejection
  • Location and studio shotgun featuring exceptional off-axis rejection
  • Unique design combination of line microphone array and second pressure gradient method
  • Very sharp pinpoint directivity
  • Provides rich human voice characteristics

 

  • The CS-3e stands out among shotgun microphones because it maintains directivity over an extremely wide frequency range, especially in the low frequencies.
  • Because of its unique design, the CS-3e is an excellent choice for use in difficult applications, such as close-to-ceiling positions or locations near a noisy camera.
  • Even in such challenging situations, the excellent side and rear rejection of the CS-3e helps to capture only the targeted dialogue without Ambient reverberation problems.
  • The CS-3e delivers sharp directional sound even in the lower frequencies.
  • Sanken's original design results in a low proximity effect which facilitates working in a scene close-up and wide, while producing little change in sound character.
  • In the CS-3e, three directional capsules are arranged in a front-back array to combine line microphone performance and second-order pressure gradient response in a single system.
  • With this unique design, the CS-3e achieves phenomenal supercardioid directivity in the lowest frequencies and throughout the full range in a microphone only 27cm (10 inches) in length.
  • It is significant that the CS-3e picks up the targeted frontal sound sources with exceptional clarity over a wide frequency range - even in noisy Ambient environments or in long reverberation spaces - by rejecting undesired noise and sounds coming from the rear and sides.
