Bundled with a furry windshield, a foam windscreen, and a vibration-reducing shockmount for clean audio with minimal extraneous noise, the BOYA BY-BM6060L long shotgun microphone offers an affordable solution for videographers, indie filmmakers, and boom operators who need a flexible and budget-friendly shotgun mic with an especially narrow pickup angle.
The long interference tube and supercardioid polar pattern yield sharp directionality in front of the mic and the switchable 150 Hz high-pass filter attenuates rumble and low-frequency handling noise. The mic's wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response allows quality signal capture for speech, ambient sound, nature sounds, and sound effects. Wind noise can be effectively reduced using the supplied windshield and windscreen.
To ensure reliable operation with a variety of devices such as cameras, mixer adapters, and portable audio recorders, the BY-BM6060L microphone runs on a single AA battery or 12 to 48 VDC phantom power. It utilizes a balanced XLR output for straightforward connectivity.
Sturdy and Lightweight
Built with an aluminum-alloy housing, the BY-BM6060L offers ruggedness while remaining lightweight, a welcome combination for comfortable use on boompoles.
Long Interference Tube
By incorporating a long interference tube and a supercardioid polar pattern, the BY-BM6060L offers a narrow pickup range with greater side- and rear-rejection characteristics than shorter shotgun mics, making it ideal for reducing the capture of ambient sound when recording outdoors.
Full-Range Frequency Reproduction
The wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response of the microphone allows it to accurately capture speech, ambient sounds, nature sounds, and sound effects. The switchable high-pass filter attenuates low frequencies below 150 Hz to help you control difficult bass issues such as rumble and traffic noise.
Battery or Phantom Powered
Able to be run on a single AA battery or 12 to 48 VDC phantom power, the BY-BM6060L can be used with DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, professional camcorders, field recorders, and handheld audio recorders. The XLR 3-pin output provides a balanced, high-quality connection point.
Strong Output Signal
The mic boasts a high sensitivity of -32 dB, which allows it to produce strong output levels with less gain (and less noise) at your recording device.
Use the included foam windscreen to control noise from light breezes or indoor turbulence from fans. Switch to the supplied furry windshield for enhanced wind noise reduction when recording outdoors.
Shockmount Inhibits Handling Noise
The BY-BM6060L comes with a shockmount that decouples the mic from your camera, boompole, or stand, thereby inhibiting vibrations and handling noise.
