About the Shure KSM32

The Shure KSM32 is a ruggedly built, large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone (Champagne). Its class-A circuitry and extended "sweet spot" delivers a smooth, detailed response, making it well-suited for recording sources from piano to percussion or violin to vocals.

Shure KSM32 Includes

  • Shure KSM32 Embossed Single-Diaphragm Microphone
  • Locking Aluminum Carrying Case
  • ShureLock Elastic-Suspension Shock Mount
  • ShureLock Swivel Adapter
  • Protective Velveteen Pouch
  • Shure Warranty

Shure KSM32 Features

  • 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
  • Extended frequency response
  • Very low self-noise
  • Exceptional low-frequency reproduction
  • High output level
  • High input SPL capability
  • No cross-over distortion
  • Extremely uniform polar response
  • Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference
