Shure SM89 Directional Shotgun Microphone

Details
The Shure SM89 Directional Shotgun Microphone features a highly directional polar pattern that offers distant pickup characteristics, making it ideal for on-location film and television production, theater sound reinforcement, spot news coverage and also wildlife recording. The SM89’s on-axis frequency response is very smooth and extended, perfect for capturing clarity and a well-balanced recording. It discriminates at a distance in favour of desired dialogue or effects and against ambient noise, even in noisy surroundings. It is the ideal microphone for capturing sound from moving sources as the off-axis response is virtually free of comb-filter effects.

Clear Sound

The Shure SM89 offers a smooth frequency response that allows it to capture a range of static and moving sound sources clearly. It features extremely low hum, noise and RF pickup, which results in cleaner recordings. The SM89 also features a slight presence rise that optimises the high-frequency response to compensate for any high-frequency losses, providing clarity and speech intelligibility. Additionally, the low-frequency roll-off can be used to minimise any wind pickup, mechanical vibration, ambient noise and low rumble without affecting voice frequencies. With a frequency response of 60Hz to 20000Hz, the SM89 microphone is ideal for capturing a range of sound sources.

Ideal Outdoor Microphone

The SM89 is ideal for location filming both indoors and outdoors. It can operate over a wide range of temperatures and humidity, making it perfect for capturing sound in every part of the world. Thanks to the rugged and reliable design, the Shure SM89 can withstand the usual knocks and bumps when on the move. As it is extremely lightweight, the SM89 can be suspended on a fishpole for long periods of time without operator fatigue.

Capture Moving Sources

The off-axis response of the SM89 is virtually free of comb-filter effects. This is important for when it is not possible to aim the microphone precisely or when it is desirable to pick up dialogue or sound from moving sources.
