The Sennheiser MKH 30-P48 is an RF-symmetrical capsule, figure-8 condenser mic with a 40Hz-20kHz frequency response and extremely low self-noise

The Sennheiser MKH 30-P48 is a supercardioid condenser mic designed for high-resolution digital recording. A state-of the–art, noiseless microphone, the MKH 30 is a highly accurate mic with a 40Hz to 20kHz frequency response that captures the entirety of a sound source without hyping any frequencies. A member of Sennheiser’s MKH-series of “truth-loving” condenser mics, the MKH40-P48 is crafted to meet the needs of high-end professional studio production as well as outdoor applications, such as interviews and electronic news gathering.

Sennheiser MKH 30-P48 in one take:

  • High rejection of lateral sounds
  • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
  • Symmetrical transducer technology ensures extremely low distortion
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • Switchable 50Hz (-4dB) roll-off filter to compensate for proximity effects at a distance of approx. 0.5 m
    Switchable -10dB pad
  • Black, anodized light metal body

Sennheiser MKH 30-P48 applications

The symmetrical transducer design of the figure-of-eight MKH 30 produces an unusually wide and smooth frequency response. It’s particularly suited to soloists and small instrumental groups, and can also serve as an ‘S’ microphone in M-S stereo applications. As a support microphone it is particularly useful in the effective suppression of sounds from adjacent sound sources.

A maker of studio-standard microphones for decades, you can’t go wrong with Sennheiser’s MKH 30-P48 figure-8 condenser mic. For more information, call or chat online with your Westlake Pro Sales Consultant today.
