Sanken Introduces New CS-2 Short Shotgun

New Sanken CS-2 Short Shotgun Microphone

Compact Mic with Long Reach and Rich, Natural Tone

Sanken Microphones has announced the introduction of a new shotgun microphone, the CS-2, which captures distant sound with an amazingly rich and natural tone. The newest model in Sanken’s comprehensive shotgun microphone line offers extended reach in a standard length mic via the company’s unique gradient tube length and proprietary rectangular diaphragm design.

The CS-2 achieves supersharp directivity with a 120mm (4.75″) long acoustic tube in a standard 250 mm (10″) length / 19mm (3/4″) diameter body. As a result, a rich natural tone is produced throughout the frequency spectrum, emulating the operation of much longer shotgun microphones.

The CS-2’s light weight makes it ideal for camera-mounted or boom pole operations and suitable for a wide range

of applications, such as outdoor location sound, interviews, sports, drama, and variety shows. A new Sanken feature, the “high boost switch,” compensates for the attenuation of high frequencies when the mic is used with a windscreen/windjammer for outdoor use. As a result, the full, natural sound is maintained.

An external brass chassis markedly increases durability, while the PPS (Poly-gold Phenylene Sulfide) diaphragm membrane provides optimum resistance to changes caused by adverse temperature and humidity. The resulting sound is consistent throughout the day in a wide variety of environments and changing climatic conditions.

The new Sanken CS-2 is available through selected Sanken Field Microphone Dealers. For more info about Sanken, visit distributor plus24: or phone 323.845.1171
