Parabolic recording systems use a large dish to pick up sounds and focus them onto a microphone located in the centre of the dish. They are very directional and will pick up even very quiet sounds over long distances. For this reason they are the ideal choice for recording wildlife such as bird songs.
This economical package includes a PRO-X handle with 3.5mm minijack cable, a Telinga MK2 microphone and a 56cm (22") foldable dish. The microphone is fitted with a 45 PPF cell foam windshield and has a frequency response of 60-20,000Hz, low self noise and matched stereo microphone capsules. These combine to provide excellent sound qualities.
The dish is foldable and will pack down to a diameter of 15cm (6"). This makes it easy to transport and store. A soft carry case is also available to purchase separately which will allow you to pack together the microphone, handle and folded dish.
A windshield and tripod mount are also available to buy separately.
