Shure KSM32/SL Studio Microphone

The Shure KSM32/SL is an embossed single diaphragm microphone with a carioid pick up pattern, ;argely used for critical studio recording and live sound productions. The microphone offers extended frequency response for natural sounding reproduction of the original sound source.

Features of the Shure KSM32/SL:

  • 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
  • Replacement cartridge: RK374

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

Applications:

  • Some typical applications for the KSM32 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM32 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.
  • Voice -- solo, background, voice-over, broadcasting
  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
  • Low frequency instruments -- such as double bass, electric bass, kick drum
  • Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
  • Ensembles -- choral or orchestral
  • Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums
