6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Details
The Shure VP83 LensHopper is a shotgun microphone designed for capturing high-definition audio with DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders. The integrated coiled 3.5mm cable simply connects straight into a recording device's audio input. With a supercardioid polar pattern, the VP83 provides outstanding protection from noise interference caused by wind and other ambient noises to deliver natural sound reproduction in any situation. The audio reproduction is rich with a wide frequency range, high sensitivity, low self-noise and a full end response. Furthermore, the Rycote Lyre shock mount system isolates vibration and mechanical noise for quiet operation. A foam windscreen adds another layer of protection from wind noise when filming outdoors and all-metal construction ensures durability.

Natural Sound Characteristics

Featuring a wide frequency range, high sensitivity, extremely low self-noise, and a full low end response, the VP83 easily delivers natural audio reproduction full of quality. A supercardioid pattern ensures a smooth performance by rejecting off-axis sound to focus directly on the main source of sound. The tight pick-up pattern works with an outstanding windshield and shock mounting system to deliver an overall sound free from vibration, wind and mechanical noise.

Accessible Control

Should you find yourself recording within extremely loud environments, simply use the three-position audio gain switch found on the back of the microphone. The switch features the option to toggle between -10 dB, 0 dB and +20 dB so you can alter the levels dependent on how loud different sound sources are.

Robust, Rugged & Lightweight

Designed for use with DSLR cameras, camcorders and portable audio recorders, the condenser shotgun microphone offers all-round protection. The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mounting system ensures isolation from vibration and any mechanical noise. Like any other Shure product, the VP83 features durable yet lightweight construction.
