The Shure KSM32 is a side-address, cardioid condenser microphone for highly critical studio recording and live sound productions. It offers an extended frequency response for an open, natural sounding reproduction of the original sound source. FEATURES: Class A, transformerless preamplifier circuitry eliminates cross-over distortion for improved linearity across the full frequency range. Embossed, high-compliance diaphragm provides extended low-frequency response. Ultra-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, Mylar® diaphragm for excellent transient response. 15 dB attenuation switch for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). Switchable low-frequency filter provides greater flexibility to reduce background noise or to counteract proximity effect. Integrated three-stage pop protection grille reduces "pop" and other breath noise. Internal shock mount reduces transmission of handling noise. Performance Characteristics: Extended frequency response. Very low self-noise. Exceptional low-frequency reproduction. High output level. High input SPL capability. No cross-over distortion. Extremely uniform polar response. Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference.
Includes Aluminum case and A32SM shockmount
