Mic #4 Answer

It’s the Sennheiser MKH 50, recommended to me by Doc Kane for ADR. Once you engage the low rolloff it has a very similar sound to it’s sister Sennheiser, the popular 416 used for film/TV dialog. A slight move off axis can sound comb filtered with a 416. But since the MKH 50 lacks an interference tube, it avoids the comb filtering. The supercardioid pattern holds pretty consistent across the spectrum, so off axis sounds don’t have any particular color.
