Tascam DR-10LW Digital Audio Recorder (White) With Lavalier Microphone

  • 2 465:-

The DR-10L is an ultra-compact digital recorder / lavalier microphone combination. Designed for both the creative filmmaker and the busy videographer, it is a powerful problem solver providing professional sonics and high convenience. For location recording, a DR-10L can be mounted to each on-camera actor, making booms, wires or expensive (and unpredictable) wireless systems unnecessary. The DR-10L is also an inspiring tool for the experimental audio designer thanks to its portability, high quality and a tiny, professionally spec’d microphone.

For added flexibility, the included wired lavalier microphone is affixed via a screw connector compatible with most Sennheiser lavalier microphones and other mics with the same connector.
