The Shure KSM137 is an end-address condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. Designed for studio use, yet rugged enough for live applications, the KSM137 can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). Its low self-noise and extended frequency response make it ideal for recording musical instruments. Comes with windscreen and carrying bag. Champagne finish.

Features

    •  A highly consistent cardioid polar pattern •  Ultra-thin, 2.5 micron, 24 karat gold-layered, low mass Mylar diaphragm for superior transient response •  Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response, no crossover distortion, and minimal harmonic and intermodulation distortion •  Premium electronic components, including gold-plated internal and external connectors •  Subsonic filter eliminates low frequency rumble (less than 17 Hz) caused by mechanical vibration •  Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs) •  Three-position switchable pad (0 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs) •  Three-position switchable low-frequency filter reduces background noise and counteracts proximity effect

Comments about Shure KSM137SL Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

I've used these mics now on a few sessions and found that the sound quality is excellent on both acoustic guitar and for drums. It has a very wide frequency response with great clear top ends, mids are fresh and and the bottom end goes on forever and stays clear the whole way down. We've also recorded some other percussion including triangle and bongos which I didn't think would sound that good based on their position but it come through extremely clear. Cymbals sounds fantastic! I want to also mention that the filters are a great feature and come in very handy.

Again, these have only been used a few times but I haven't been able to stump these yet. These are great and I would recommend getting a pair of them, I've captured some phenomenal sounding tracks so far with mine.
