About: Sanken CS-2 Long Reach Shotgun Mic

Standard length short shotgun with greater directivity and extended reach via the unique audio tube length and proprietary rectangular diaphragm design. A rich natural tone is produced throughout the frequency spectrum, emulating the operation of much longer shotgun mics.

An extended length audio tube provides maximum directivity and reach while still preserving Sanken’s renowned rich and natural tone. Since windscreens used in field recording cause loss of high frequencies, the CS-2’s High Boost Switch automatically compensates for this factor.

Lightweight, Functional and Durable on Location

At just 250mm/10” long, the CS-2 weighs only 110grams/3.8 oz., making it lightweight and ideal for camera-mounted or boom pole operations. 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.

A rich, natural sound makes the CS-2 ideal for a wide range of uses, such as for outdoor location sound, interviews, sports, drama, variety shows, and many more.
