Azden SGM-3500 Broadcast Spec Shotgun Microphone Supercardioid
The SGM-3500 Shotgun Mic with Supercardioid polar pattern demonstrates Azden's pinnacle of engineering and performance standards for professional broadcast use that provides excellent off-axis rejection
Adhering to Azden’s highest engineering and performance standards, the 3500 series shotgun microphones are designed to satisfy the needs of even the most fastidious audio and video professionals.
Basically a shorter version of the 3500L, the SGM-3500 measures 7” long. The comparatively shorter interference tube generates a slightly less directional supercardioid polar pattern, that still provides excellent rejection of off-axis sound. While perfectly suitable as a boom microphone, the shorter length makes the 3500 a more practical choice for on-camera mounting.
