Location and studio shotgun featuring exceptional off-axis rejection
Unique design combination of line mic array and second pressure gradient method
Very sharp pinpoint directivity
Provides rich human voice characteristics
The CS-3e stands out among shotgun microphones because it maintains directivity over an extremely wide frequency
range, especially in the low frequencies. Because of its unique design, the CS-3e is an excellent choice for use in difficult
applications, such as close-to-ceiling positions or locations near a noisy camera. Even in such challenging situations, the
excellent side and rear rejection of the CS-3e helps to capture only the targeted dialogue without ambient reverberation
problems. The CS-3e delivers sharp directional sound even in the lower frequencies. Sanken's original design results in a
low proximity effect which facilitates working in a scene close-up and wide, while producing little change in sound
character. In the CS-3e, three directional capsules are arranged in a front-back array to combine line microphone
performance and second-order pressure gradient response in a single system. With this unique design, the CS-3e
achieves phenomenal super-cardioid directivity in the lowest frequencies and throughout the full range in a microphone
only 27cm (10 inches) in length. It is significant that the CS-3e picks up the targeted frontal sound sources with
exceptional clarity over a wide frequency range - even in noisy ambient environments or in long reverberation spaces - by
rejecting undesired noise and sounds coming from the rear and sides. The CS-3e is small and lightweight with a low-cut
switch to satisfy the various needs of location and studio recording. The standard 19mm diameter permits use of a wide
range of accessories developed for enhanced performance and field mobility. When a conventional shotgun microphone is
near the sound source, proximity effect results in a boosting of certain low frequencies and slight masking of others. The
CS-3e virtually eliminates the proximity effect and maintains sharp directivity, while the sonic characteristics do not change
with varied distances between sources and microphone. This is a significant advantage over all other directional
microphones.
