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.

  • 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
  • The KSM32/SL has a champagne-colored finish and comes with the following accessories:
  • Locking aluminum carrying case
  • ShureLock elastic-suspension shock mount
  • ShureLock swivel mount
  • Protective velveteen pouch
  • 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
Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement have significant effects on the sound obtained when miking a source. You may need to experiment with these variables to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
