Product Description

Details

Audio Technica AT897

Audio-Technica's AT897 is designed for field audio acquisition in film/TV/video production, professional recording, wildlife recording and broadcast applications. It mounts conveniently on a DV camcorder without adding noticeable heft, and remains out of the frame even with compact digital cameras. This high-performance short shotgun offers outstanding long-distance audio pickup due to narrow acceptance angle of line + gradient design. It also features smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality and excellent off-axis rejection of sound arriving from the sides and rear of mic.

  • DM Says
    "We often get asked how to pickup speech and singers from a distance - maybe for recording or use with choirs. Shotgun mics offer an excellent way of getting the sound without needing to be right in front of the mic... but careful placement will be necessary to achieve the best results"
