Sennheiser MKH8060 with Rycote Medium Cyclone inc. Windjammer
The mighty Sennheiser 416 has been the mainstay of location recording for years, decades even, but time and technology wait for no one and Sennheiser have a range of modern alternatives starting with the MKH 8060.
Whether it's a feature film, a documentary, an outdoor shoot or a studio production, the MKH 8060 will provide high quality sound to match your great pictures. Handily compact it shows its strengths as a professional shotgun microphone: The MKH 8060 delivers an absolute natural sound and outstanding off-axis linearity, attenuating sound coming from the side without coloration. Like all mics of the 8000-family it can be easily combined with the MZD 8000 digital module, turning it into a full-fledged digital microphone.
There are a number of windshielding options for the 8060 and this bundle is one of the most popular. We've packaged up the mic with a Rycote Medium Cyclone and Windjammer which provides excellent wind protection and low handling noise.
