The Shure KSM32 is a popular fixed-cardioid condenser microphone that eventually finds itself in the hands of every audio engineer. With a wide frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz that peaks at 7 kHz and 10 kHz to add some high-end air, this microphone is a great choice on vocals and voiceover. It has a thin Mylar diaphragm for great transient response, high SPL handling for recording percussion or louder instruments, and a transformerless preamplifier circuitry, resulting in low self-noise that make it a great fit for critical studio recording. Accessories included are a stand mount and a shock mount, so you can set up and start recording
The KSM32's frequency response doesn't confine it to being strictly a vocal microphone. The SPL handling goes as high as 154 dB with the -15 dB pad, so you can set this microphone in front of a bass or guitar amplifier without worry of distortion. It also works well as an ambient room mic, kick drum mic, or even paired up as overhead mics on drums or a choir.
Aside from the -15 dB pad, the KSM32 offers switchable rolloff settings of -6 dB per octave below 115 Hz, and -18 dB per octave below 80 Hz. These filters are helpful for recording vocals, guitars, and mid-to-higher frequency percussion, to weed out the lower unwanted rumble these instruments tend to have around 100 Hz. With the filters off, the KSM32's frequency range goes as low as 20 Hz, so you can grab those lower frequency instruments -- like bass or kick drum -- when you want to.
Built with class A tranformerless preamplifier circuitry, the KSM32 has a low self noise of only 13 dB. You'll be able to get that tight and dry sound from a professional vocal booth without any unwanted noise. The Mylar diaphragm is ultra-thin and is very light -- providing a great transient response and true-to-life sound. Also, with the included shock mount, this microphone also works great on stage as well as in the studio.
