ME31 Compact Gun Microphone

Sturdy metal body makes this microphone a reliable choice for lecture recording and outdoor use.

This directional gun microphone is great for recording birds singing outdoors.  The adoption of a metal-cut body makes it very sturdy.  It is also convenient for lectures and other events as there is a stand that attaches to the grip to enable the microphone to be placed on a table.  A grip that facilitates attachment of a microphone stand (NS 5/8″) or camera tripod is also included.
