||Shure SM89 Shotgun Microphone
The SM89 is a highly directional 'shotgun' condenser microphone with distant pickup
characteristics suitable for on-location film and television production, theatre
sound reinforcement, spot news coverage, and wildlife recording. The SM89 discriminates
at a distance in favor of the desired sound and against ambient noise, even in
frequency response of the SM89 is very smooth and extended. For clarity and speech
intelligibility, a slight presence rise optimizes the high-frequency response
to compensate for high-frequency losses. A low-frequency roll-off minimizes pickup
of wind, mechanical vibration, ambient noise, and rumble without affecting voice
