The Shure VP89L Modular Shotgun Microphone features an interchangeable capsule that displays high RF (Radio Frequency) rejection, superior side noise rejection, and is paired with the detachable VP89 Preamp. Long, short and medium sized capsule barrels are available to suite various recording needs, rejection angles and frequency response types.

This model ships with the long capsule, and includes a windscreen and zippered pouch. The state-of-the-art low noise preamplifier design features a low frequency roll-off switch for eliminating noise below 200Hz. The usefulness of the microphone can be further extended by buying one of the other length capsule and simply attaching it to the already included preamp.
