    Rycote HC-15 Short Shotgun Microphone

    Notify me when this product is available:

    The Rycote HC-15 is a hyper-cardioid short shotgun microphone designed for a wide range of applications in cinema, TV, ENG, live broadcast, sound design, studio and field recording.

    The HC-15 combines a moderately directional polar pattern with extremely low self-noise. This provides some level of off-axis rejection and isolation with a precise sound quality to match, making the HC-15 a great all-around mic for many recording environments.
