SWITCH IT UP WITH SENNHEISER’S NEW MKH 800 TWIN

mkh_800_twin.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – APRIL 2008: Sennheiser is introducing its new MKH 800 Twin microphone at the 2008 NAB Show(tm). Based upon Sennheiser’s legendary MKH 800, the MKH 800 Twin multiplies recordists’ abilities by offering polar pattern switching after the recording session.

The MKH 800 Twin can be thought of as a multi-pattern microphone without the pattern switches. So how does it generate the various patterns? The MKH 800 Twin is equipped with both front and back capsule outputs. In a standard multi-pattern mic like its legendary predecessor, the MKH 800, the pattern of the mic is derived by adding and subtracting the back capsule. Thanks to the MKH 800 Twin’s dual outputs, recordists can simply plug both of these capsules into a DAW or recorder and create the pattern desired during mix-down.

“The MKH 800 Twin will become a new classic thanks to its incredible versatility, even after a recording session is complete,” said Dawn Birr, product manager professional systems for Sennheiser. “Whether you find you need a tighter or wider pattern for a few seconds or for several minutes in a certain part of the recording, the MKH 800 Twin makes it happen.”

The MKH 800 Twin is ideal for film scoring, symphonic recording, broadcasting, 5.1 surround, and studio and field recording. Sennheiser’s renowned transparency and accuracy, incredibly low self-noise and humidity-resistant construction makes the MKH 800 Twin a powerhouse in any application, while its wide frequency response spans 50kHz. The MKH 800 Twin also features a symmetrical capsule design with extremely low distortion.

The MKH 800 Twin will be available in April 2008.
MSRP: $3,356
