An excellent choice for acoustic guitar and piano.
The Shure KSM137 is an end-address condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. Designed for studio use, yet rugged enough for live applications, the KSM137 mic can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels. Its low self-noise and extended frequency response make it ideal for recording acoustic guitar, drum overheads, and hi-hats. Other features include Shure's Class A transformerless preamp circuitry for transparency; extremely fast transient response with minimal distortion; a highly sensitive 2.5-micron gold-layered mylar diaphragm; and a switchable, 3-position low-frequency filter to limit unwanted background noise and proximity effect. The microphone can capture sounds between 20Hz and 20kHz. The Shure KSM137 microphone sports a champagne finish and comes with accessories including a break-resistant mic clip, carrying case, and Popper Stopper windscreen.
Requires phantom power.
