The VP89 is a modular shotgun microphone with class A preamplifier electronics and excellent RF immunity.

The VP89 is available in three variants: VP89 L, VP89 M and VP89 S with long, medium and short barrel. The Long (L) version with a 30° pickup angle is ideal for long distances such as sporting events, ENG, wildlife and field recording, the Medium (M) version with a 50° pickup angle is meant for wider sources like audience response, talk shows and live concerts while the Short (S) version with a 70° pickup angle is well suited for near-field pickup range, mounted on cameras.
