Los Angeles, CA, May 2019 – Sanken Microphones is introducing the new CMS-50 stereo condenser microphone, setting new standards for sound quality and versatility in a compact shotgun mic. Ideal for boom pole operation or camera mounted, the mic is especially suited to ambient recording and shoots where tight patterns and premium sound are sought.

The CMS-50 features M-S (Mid-Side) configuration, which makes it possible to adjust the stereo width at the mixer or in post-production. The shotgun includes two outputs, a Cardioid and Figure-8, which can be fed into the mixer for width adjustments. If both outputs are recorded, stereo width can be managed in post.

At only 5.4” in length and weighing only 4.6 oz., the unobtrusive CMS-50 is rugged and dependable in a wide range of applications where sound clarity and noise rejection are critical requirements. It can be camera-mounted without interfering with even a short lens, yet still provide the quality of audio demanded by today’s professionals.

The CMS-50’s lightweight, rugged design and unique components assure optimum resistance to humidity and adverse temperature changes.

Available in June 2019. MSRP: $1,750
