Rycote Expands Professional Microphone Line-up with a bi-directional and long shotgun models

Rycote is excited to announce the launch of two additional microphones that are set to complete and create a solid, high-end range of professional microphones, designed for the film production, sport broadcast and field recording applications. 


The range has been expanded both in the pencils format with a new bi-directional microphone called BD-10 and the shotgun design with a long version named HC-35. The BD-10 is made for stereo and field recording, mainly applied on ambient and dialogues, while the HC-35 is a long shotgun  microphone developed for sport broadcast, a wide outdoor shot dialogue on a script TV. These new microphones have been accurately designed to offer the same signature sound and low-self noise performance as all other recently launched Rycote microphones in the range, ensuring excellence and consistency in all productions. The new products perfectly complement the industry standard Rycote windshields and shock mounting accessories, positioning Rycote as a top choice in the industry that offers the most complete solution even in the most demanding applications.



The BD-10 microphone features an innovative capsule design which allows it to record accurate stereo images with excellent detail and clarity. In addition, it has an integrated suspension system which minimises any handling noise or vibration. This makes it perfect for capturing dialogues or ambience in film production as well as field recording applications. 


The HC-35 long shotgun microphone is specifically designed for sports broadcasting applications, such as football games or other sporting events where clear audio capture is mission critical. It offers superior off-axis rejection which helps reduce background noise from outside sources such as wind or crowd noise. Additionally, its lightweight design makes it comfortable and easy to handle during broadcasts. 

Rycote has developed a microphone range that balances quality with affordability. With these two new additions to the range, Rycote continues to set itself apart as a leader in audio capture technologies. 


"We're very proud of what we've achieved with this microphone range," comments Bjørn

Rennemo-Henriksen, Audio Sales Sr Director. "Our team worked hard to combine a great sound and accurate reproduction with an affordable price tag – something we believe sets us apart from our competitors.


The synergy between the microphone and Rycote's best selling items allows users to create supreme sounding packages. Rycote stands for sound professionals being satisfied with their work and getting the best performances from their equipment. 


With these two new additions, Rycote has now greatly increased their range of microphones, making it not only a great array of choices to cover various productions, but a wise investment as well.
