We use this mic for recording vocals on a boompole during client interviews and dialogue from narrative projects.We were using the Rode NTG-3 shotgun, which is still a great mic, but the tone and richness from the Sennheiser is noticeably superior.The barrel of the MKH-50 is realy short, only 6, so...
