Cut through the Noise with the Shure KSM32/SL Cardioid Condenser Microphone - Champagne

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. The KSM32 is in heavy rotation in some of the most discerning recording studios for its natural sound. It is often used in overhead recording applications. Other applications include voice, acoustic instruments, wind instruments, or as a room mic.
