The matte black CSR-2 Rear Rejection Shotgun Microphone from Sanken is used to capture audio in critical applications such as TV, film sound and more. This microphone features a back electret condenser with 3 capsules. It combines the long acoustic tube and rectangular capsule design of the Sanken CS-2 with the mid and low frequency side and rear rejection of the Sanken CS-3e. A switch allows you to turn off the mid and low frequency side and rear rejection capsule to obtain a wider and warmer sound image. The frequency range is 70 to 18kHz.

The CSR-2 is built with an XLR connector and is powered by +48V phantom power. Measuring about 10 inches in length and weighing 6 ounces this mic is a candidate for camera or boom pole mounting scenarios. A urethane wind screen and vinyl case is included.
