Sanken CUB Contact Mic


Sanken CUB Contact Mic


The Sanken CUB offers an exclusive design which overcomes the limitations of previous boundary microphones, producing an extremely rich and full-bodied sound. Although small (32.5mm diameter, 14mm height, 45g weight) the sound is comparable with much larger microphones. The CUB is designed for use in many situations, from TV and film field shooting to broadcast studio production and conference table recording. Because of its small size it is easy to conceal from the camera, and can be positioned in a variety of environments, for example, attached to the ceiling of a car with two-sided sticky tape.
