Shure KSM137/SL Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphone (Champagne), Foam Windscreen and Carrying Case
Shure KSM137/SL Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphone (Champagne), Foam Windscreen, and Carrying Case
The Shure‘s KSM137/SL ST PAIR is a stereo pair of cardioid condenser studio microphones that are designed for instrument recording and sound reinforcement. The KSM137/SL is also offering a wide 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response for making it a flexible microphone for various applications. The KSM137/SL is featured with a cardioid element and permanently biased transducer design leading to a clean, accurate signal reproduction & frequency response. The transformer-less and class-A output circuitry offers a noiseless output signal path along with maintaining high gain levels. The tight cardioid pattern is effective in attenuating off-axis signals because of room ambiance, instruments, monitor noise, etc.
There is a 3-position low-frequency roll-off switch, eliminating low-frequency rumble noise and counteracting proximity effect. The KSM137/SL handles high sound pressure levels and features a 3-position pad switch providing attenuation at 0 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB. This allows confident miking of instruments high in transient response such as drums, percussion, and brass. the microphone is suitable for piano, strings, guitar, and woodwind as well.
The cardioid polar pattern is effective in attenuating off-axis signals due to room ambiance, instruments, monitor noise, etc.
Class-A Transformer-Less Circuitry
The transformer-less, class-A output circuitry provides a noise-free output signal path while maintaining high gain levels.
3-Position Low-Frequency Roll-Off Switch
The KSM137/SL provides flexible low-frequency attenuation, eliminating low-frequency noise and rumble.
3-Position Pad Switch
