About Shure KSM44A

The Shure KSM44A Multi-Pattern Large Dual-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone features a dual-diaphragm capsule, a tailored frequency response and extensive pop filtering at the inside and outside of the capsule's grille. The KSM44A features switchable omnidirectional, cardioid and bi-directional polar patterns for maximum flexibility in any recording scenario.

Its Prethos Advanced Preamplifier technology delivers transparent audio quality and smooth proximity control over an ultra-wide dynamic range. An attenuation (Pad) switch maximizes headroom and minimizes distortion when capturing percussive or transient signals. A low-cut roll-off switch eliminates low frequency noise and the KSM44A ships with a shockmount and storage case.

Shure KSM44A Features

  • Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology: Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier provides transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion. Minimizes harmonic and intermodulation distortions.
  • Groundbreaking specifications: 4 dB of self-noise and max SPL of 131 dB for a total dynamic range of 127 dB - an increase of 7 dB that defines the new standard for cleanly nuanced audio capture
  • Multiple polar patterns-cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional-for maximum flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
  • Dual 1 inch, externally biased, ultra-thin, 2.5 micron, 24 karat gold-layered, low mass diaphragms provide superior frequency response
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz.
  • Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted stand vibration noise or counteract proximity effect
  • Integrated three-stage "pop" protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise
