    The Shure Beta 58A is a supercardioid dynamic handheld microphone that’s one of our most popular rentals. Get the classic “Shure sound” that cuts through the mix, with bright midrange and moderate low-frequency rolloff for proximity effect control.   The mic is great at controlling feedback, with highly directional sensitivity.  Signal output is relatively high, making the mic a great choice for stage, or any time you need to run a long cable.

    Discounts are available for rentals with multiple microphones.

    This simple handheld microphone is popular for events and presentations. It features an on-off switch for simple operation. Moderate isolation helps eliminate feedback while still making the microphone easy for anyone to use. This is a dynamic microphone, which means it does not require phantom power. It connects to any PA system or camera with standard XLR cables.  If you want to go wireless, we can help you with a wireless adapter.

  8. Sennheiser MKH416 Shotgun Microphone

    shotgun-mic-416

    You probably hear audio recorded on the Sennheiser 416  shotgun microphone almost every time you turn on the TV or watch a film.  This shotgun mic is a standard for film and video production. It features a supercardioid pickup pattern, fantastic frequency response, and the ability to handle both field and studio voiceover work.

    We rent it with a shockmount for reduced handling noise and ease of mounting on your boom pole or camera.

    You’ll need to provide phantom power to this mic.  If you’re looking for a well-matched recorder, we suggest the Zoom H6.

  9. Rode VideoMic Pro Microphone

    rode-videomic-pro-shotgun

    The Rode VideoMic Pro provides quality shotgun sound with a small size. It’s designed to work with most smaller cameras that use 1/8″ (3.5mm) inputs, especially mirrorless and DSLR cameras.  The integrated shockmount reduces handling noise, and the adjustable gain takes the pressure off your camera’s microphone preamps.

    The Rode VideoMic Pro uses a supercardioid pattern to avoid unwanted noises from the side, and a low rolloff switch for outdoor use. It mounts in a standard hot or cold camera shoe or on a 3/8″ thread.  Runs all weekend on one 9v battery, included. We use a VideoMic Pro on everything we shoot on DSLR and mirrorless cameras, even when we’re running double-system sound.  This makes for a cleaner, faster sync in post, plus we have an excellent backup source in case there are problems with the external audio recorder.

    For DSLR shooting, we suggest turning your camera’s gain setting down as low as is reasonable, and turning up the level on the Rode VideoMic pro to max (+20 dB).

  10. Rode NTG-1 Shotgun Microphone

    rode-ntg-1

    This Rode NTG-1 shotgun microphone uses 24-48v phantom power.  Moderate rejection of off-axis sounds and great SNR make it a great all-purpose shotgun mic.  Less “hot” than typical shotgun mics from manufacturers like Sennheiser, this mic is a perfect match with cameras and recorders with sensitive preamps.

    Includes a low roll-off switch for rumble and wind reduction.  We send ours with a windscreen and a shockmount with 3/8″ mounting threads, for easy attachment to your boom pole or camera shoe.
