The MKH 8050 offers an even higher attenuation of off-axis sound than its sister model, the MKH 8040, by virtue of its super-cardioid pick-up pattern. It’s a good option for recording soloists, or when acoustic separation is demanded of your work. A balanced frequency response throughout the whole pick-up pattern ensures large instruments like pianos or even whole orchestras sound flawless and distortion-free. The Nextel coating prevents reflections, giving you the freedom to position the mic according to acoustic criteria alone.
