The SM89 is a highly directional condenser shotgun microphone with distant pickup characteristics suitable for on-location film and television production.

The SM89 can also be used for theater sound reinforcement, spot news coverage, or wildlife recording. The SM89 discriminates at a distance in favor of desired dialogue or effects and against ambient noise -- even in noisy surroundings. 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.

The off-axis response of the SM89 is virtually free of comb-filter effects. This is important when it is not possible to aim the microphone precisely or when it is desirable to pick up dialogue or sound from moving sources.

Designed especially for location film and TV production, theater sound reinforcement, and spot news coverage
