Adhering to Azden’s highest engineering and performance standards, the 3500 series shotgun microphones are handcrafted in Japan to meet the stringent demands of video and broadcast professionals.
The SGM-3500 is a 7” long shotgun microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern for excellent side noise rejection. The relatively shorter length of the 3500 makes it a practical choice for on-camera mounting with cinema and broadcast cameras, while still being perfectly well suited for boom-pole work.
At the core of the microphone’s high performance is Azden’s newly developed high-sensitivity microphone element, capable of capturing rich detail, with ultra-low self noise and a wide frequency response tuned especially for speech.
The all metal brass body ensures durability and provides excellent rejection of external RF sources. A gold-plated XLR connector prevents corrosion and ensures good connectivity.
The SGM-3500 is backed by Azden’s longest warranty term of 10 years (with online registration) unmatched by other brands of microphones in its performance class.
Included with the SGM-3500 microphone is an articulating mic clip with 5/8″ and 3/8″ thread adapters, a high-density foam windscreen and a deluxe hardshell case. Each microphone is also tested before leaving the factory and is accompanied by its own frequency response chart.
