Shure SM89 Shotgun Microphone

The Shure SM89 is a directional condenser, shotgun microphone that is ideally suited television production, on location film, theatre sound and on the spot news coverage. The SM89 picks up directional sound so eliminates ambient noise and traffic.
The on-axis 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 frequencies.
