Designed to be the workhorse for project and home recording studios maintained by musicians and professional recording engineers alike, Shure's new KSM27 microphone is a large-diaphragm, side-address cardioid model. This latest addition to the KSM product family is currently shipping.
With an extended frequency response of 20 Hz - 20 kHz, the KSM27 is optimized for vocals, but capable of handling high-input SPLs to accommodate sound sources such as drums and guitar amplifiers. The KSM27 utilizes Class A, transformerless preamp circuitry, which virtually eliminates crossover distortion and brings improved linearity across its entire operating range. To enhance low frequency and transient response while improving environmental stability, the mic is additionally outfitted with a one-inch, ultra-thin Mylar diaphragm. As a further complement to the design, the microphone encompasses an internal shock mount to keep self-noise low at 14 dB A-weighted. Like other KSM Series microphones, the KSM27's durable zinc die-cast housing comes finished in an attractive champagne color. To protect the microphone from damage, a hardened low-carbon steel grille shields its capsule. Accessories provided with each mic include a Velveteen pouch and a rubber-isolated, external locking shock mount.
The KSM27 is manufactured in the United States, and carries a suggested retail price of $575.00.
