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-3500L is a 10” long shotgun microphone with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for maximum side noise rejection. The microphone’s long acoustic interference tube creates a more focused directional pickup that performs well in noisy environments.

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-3500L is backed by Azden’s longest warranty term of 10 years (with online registration) unmatched by other microphones in its performance class.

Included with the SGM-3500L 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.
