Shure VP89L Long Shotgun Microphone with Case & Foam Windscreen, 60-20,000 Hz Frequency Response, 115.0 Ohms Output Impedance


About Shure VP89L

The Shure VP89L Long Shotgun Microphone features an interchangeable capsule that displays high RF (Radio Frequency) rejection, superior side noise rejection and is paired with the detachable VP89L Preamp. Long sized capsule barrel is available to suite various recording needs, rejection angles and frequency response types.

The Shure VP89L includes a windscreen and carrying case. The state-of-the-art low noise preamplifier design features a low frequency roll-off switch for eliminating noise below 200Hz. The usefulness of the microphone can be further extended by buying one of the other length capsule and simply attaching it to the already included preamp.
