Production mixer Glenn Berkovitz, C.A.S., recently employed the newSanken CS-1 Short Shotgun microphone for the ABC series KarenSisco. "We used the CS-1 for dialog inside a van," explainedBerkovitz. "We were using my favorite, the Sanken CS-3e shotgun, forexteriors but found ourselves in really cramped quarters and I swappedit for the CS-1. This new Sanken short shotgun worked perfectly, andthe dialog from the two mics matched beautifully."

"Both the CS-1 and the CS-3e have a nice targeted range withoutbeing too pin-pointy like a hypercardioid shotgun where the mic reallyhas to be on a very tight target," added Berkovitz. "The Sankenshotguns are ideal for episodic TV, film and ENG production sound."
