Sennheiser 8050 with Rycote Cyclone bundle

Sennheiser MKH8050 with Rycote Small Cyclone and Windjammer 

The Sennheiser MKH8050 super-cardioid is a great general purpose microphone perfect for recording soloists, large instruments like the grand piano, orchestras and of course speech for radio and TV productions.


The 8050 has a wide frequency response of 30 to 50,000 Hz and the symmetrical transducer with 2 backplates provides extremely low distortion and noise.


The Nextel® coating gives you the freedom to position the MKH8050 without having to worry about reflections from lighting upsetting camera dept. The poor lambs.


The Cyclone windshield has superb acoustic transparency. Designed with an open shell structure consisting of curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces, it greatly reduces room-tone effects inherent in conventional tubular windshield designs. All Cyclone models feature advanced 3D-Tex® material covering a lighweight yet durable chassis. This provides a neutral appearance and superior performance over standard basket solutions with excellent acoustic transparency and superb attenuation of wind-noise.


This is an excellent combination of top quality products for professional feature film and drama applications.
