Audio Technica BP4071L microphone with BPZ-XL Soft Zep system (490mm long)

At 21.22" (539mm) long, the Audio-Technica BP4071L is among the longest shotgun microphones on the market today. Originally developed at the request of broadcast professionals, this microphone boasts an extremely narrow polar pattern, excellent rejection from the sides and rear of the microphone, along with crisp, intelligible audio reproduction. It offers switchable low-frequency roll-off and a 10 dB pad, and comes generously equipped with a stand clamp, windscreen, and case.

The Soft-Zep is lightweight, robust and simple to use and has a permanently mounted high quality fur windcover around an open cell foam core and a very comfortable hand grip made from Kraton rubber with soft gel inserts. A thread in the base of the handle allows a boom pole to be attached. The rubber handle can be easily removed and a microphone cable (not included) can be threaded through the handle so it is out of the way. For ease of use, the microphone is simply inserted into the rear of the Soft-Zep in the same way as a “Windshield”.
