    Rycote HC-22 Shotgun Microphone

    Notify me when this product is available:

    The Rycote HC-22 is a hypercardioid shotgun microphone designed for a wide range of applications in cinema, TV, ENG, live broadcast, sound design, studio and field recording.

    The HC-22 combines a highly directional polar pattern with extremely low self-noise. This provides solid off-axis rejection and isolation with a precise sound quality to match, making the HC-22 a great all around mic for recording environments which may require a more focused recording approach.
