Sanken reveals a new Short Stereo Shotgun Mic

Recommended Posts

https://www.sankenmicrophones.com/news/cms-50

 

Mid side all in one very short body. Really interesting.

Waited for too much time an MKH8030 capsule. Now I'm thinking getting one of these, or the pearl audio one... Just wondering about the directivity of the mid capsule, some sites say shotgun, other write cardio... Wait and see.

sanken site says 1795 $ , june 2019

i would try and compare the other options before buying- neumann rsm 191 ca 1500€ used, Audio-technica bp4027 1000€ new, to name some good alternatives...

There aren't many good mikes of this type on the market, so I find it a quite good idea from Sanken.

 

The Beyerdynamic MCE 72 PV isn't really a professional piece of gear due to it's noisiness.

 

I've been working with the RSM 191/192 a lot and find it too bulky, too sensitive on RF. And that special multicore cable is terrible.

mine is working fine since years with an neumann cable.

you can use any 7pin cable, just solder an 7pin xlr at the mic suspension side.

i like the soundstage of this mic alot, in comparison to sennheiser 418, the at bp4027 and sanken css5.

For many years I've understood that post do not prefer mid side over XY

 

Despite the BBC liking it for some work I heard it likened to telling a DP

to shoot only on a 50mm lens!

here in germany its a common standard, from practical side for documentary shots its unbeatable, no mic swapping, gathering ambience and dialog at the same time and the advantage that you have a dedicated mic mid are big pluses. anyway if you want to deliver xy for whatever reason you can  matrix while recording in nearly every modern recorder, but then you loose the easy control of the center signal in post.

I have the AT bp 4027.... And I don't personally like it. Those electret capsules are a bit too noisy for my schoeps and MKH formated ears... And it's not very sharp in therms of middle bass reproduction if you ask me.

 

Actually  It's one of my dust collecting mic that I never have the chance to put in action.

Thanks for the input. There are the polar pattern dispayed in there, so there is the answer to my first question. The mid is a cardiod, I would have prefered an hyper....

Yeah it didn't get much discussion the first time around, which is a pity as I'm quite a fan of Sanken now

The pearl MSH10 seems really good and got very nice comments....

But I'm always afraid of RF and moisture problems, I'm paranoid since I got unusable signal with my schoeps on a scene with shower...

 

So when I got my MKH8060 (just after this nightmare shooting), all these problems and stress disappeared. 

 

Sanken told that they worked to be RF immune and moisture resistant... what about the MSH10 ? anyone can relate ?

 

I do work in sometimes quite hard conditions for the gear (understand : documentary guerilla style) that's why I always hoped an MKH 8030... wich seems not planned at all. Very disappointing.

My rep told me last week they are "on the boat" from Japan but will still take another two weeks or so to arrive here in the states.
