The Shure Model SM87A is a professional-quality, handheld condenser microphone for use in sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording installations. Its super-cardioid polar pattern provides greater rejection of unwanted sound sources, making it ideal for miking individual instruments in a multi-microphone setting or for miking single sources in a reverberant or noisy environment. The SM87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off tailored for optimum peformance when close-miking sound sources. An integral three-stage wind and pop filter protects against wind and breath noise. Its built-in shock mount reduces stand and handling noise. The SM87A operates on phantom power.
