The Shure KSM32 is an embossed single-diaphragm, side-address, cardioid condenser microphone for highly critical studio recording and live sound productions. The Shure KSM32 offers an extended frequency response for an open, natural-sounding reproduction of the original sound source.
Versatile Studio Mic
The KSM32’s frequency response with presence peaks at 7kHz and 10kHz makes it ideal for vocals, but the high SLP handling opens it up to use for a number of louder sources as well. Engage the 15dB pad and park the KSM32 in front of a guitar cabinet or over a drum kit with no fear of distortion. Anywhere you need to make sure that every detail of the sound is accurately captured, the KSM32 should be near the top your list.
Built-in Pad and Roll-off Filter
With the built-in pad and roll-off, the KSM32 can be tailored for use in loud applications or engage the roll-off filter to minimize proximity effect and place the mic up close on the sound source. A built-in 3-stage pop filter virtually eliminates the need for an external pop shield, and the internal shockmount greatly reduces handling noise.
For Studio or Stage
Equipped with a cardioid polar pattern (along with the aforementioned internal shockmount) the KSM32 can function equally well on stage as it does in the studio. The cardioid pattern helps isolate the KSM32 from other sound sources on stage. And the pop filter allows a singer to use it on stage for superb sound on vocals without pops.
