No expense spared�ۡ�ݕ�_ microphone

By John Moyer

from Greenwood, IN

The KSM353 is a �ۡ��̏no expense spared�ۡ�ݕ�_ microphone crafted for pristine audio in studio and concert hall applications. Like the 313, it's also handmade but comes in a tall wooden box that looks like it should hold a delicate astronomical instrument or a nuclear fuel rod. The mic has a highly polished, machined stainless-steel tube containing the double-shielded transformer and ribbon motor rigidly joined together for minimal magnetic and RF interference, lowest noise and highest output. Both sides of the 353 are symmetrical in frequency response to minimize off-axis coloration.Great mic!!!!
