About Shure SM86

The Shure SM86 is a unidirectional (cardioid) condenser vocal microphone for professional use in live performance. An extremely rugged microphone, the SM86 withstands the rigors of touring while delivering studio-quality sound. The tailored frequency response of the SM86 reproduces vocals with clarity.

A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise.

The built-in three-point shock mount minimizes handling noise, and a two-stage pop filter reduces wind and breath pop noise. The SM86 is an excellent selection for use with both stage monitors and personal in-ear monitors.
