This or the MKH 416 kit? That doubled the price. I know the 416 is basically industry standard. I'm thinking of recording voice overs, small YT clips of conversations, and possibly a run and gun recording of a soprano singing at a concert or hall.

This mic sounds really good with the Zoom preamps. I have the H5 and use this mic for audio interviews. It's a good combo deal.

A shotgun mic wouldn't be recommended for recording a singer. If you just want to record some voice over stuff you'd be better suited for a dynamic mic, like the Shure SM57, unless money is really no object. Shotgun mic for voice over is overkill, unless you plan to do it professionally. If you haven't already, I'd recommend checking out some videos by boothjunkie on youtube.

I agree that a shotgun mic isn't ideal for vocal pickups, but it might have to be the compromise to get the job done on-the-fly (re: their need to capture a very broad, if not contradictory, range of use cases). Assuming they can't mic the performer or source a better capture from in-house engineers, best practice would be to set up the H6+mic remote and as close to the source as possible. Running the risk of operation errors, but it'll be the best way to capture w/ this kit's specs.

Also, the H6 comes included with a decent condenser capsule that gets the job done for voiceover and podcasting needs, so the kit works for those use cases too and w/o dependency on whichever shotgun mic they go w/.

I got this deal. There was a pop-up I got during the shopping process that let me get Adoramas annual premium membership with it for free. This enabled free two day shipping.
