Studio Condenser Microphone


Designed and built based upon years of Shure research and development, the KSM32 is a side-address, cardioid condenser mic outfitted with Class A, transformerless preamp circuitry. This virtually eliminates crossover distortion and brings improved linearity across its entire operating range. Its embossed, high compliance, gold-layered, Milar diaphragm provides extended low frequency response while improving environmental stability. The very low mass of this ultra-thin (c.5 micrometer) diaphragm enables it to accurately reproduce the transient response of any sound source. Performance is enhanced by its extremely low self noise (less than 13dB typical, A-weighted), resulting in the increased dynamic range required for demanding recording applications. Given the KSM32’s high output capability, noise potentials are reduced even further by eliminating the need for large amounts of microphone preamp gain. The KSM32 also offers an extended frequency response form 20 Hz. to 20 KHz. making it ideally suited for use with vocals, acoustic and wind instruments, ensembles, and the overhead miking of drums and percussion. The KSM32 is offered in two models: the KSM32/SL ($1,029) features a champagne-colored finish and comes standard with a ShureLock™ elastic-suspension shock mount, a locking aluminum carrying case, ShureLock swivel mount and a protective velveteen pouch. A CG version ($959) is available for live applications and comes in a non-reflective charcoal grey color and zippered carrying bag. Shure Brothers Inc., 222 Hartrey Avenue, Evanston, IL 60202
