The Shure KSM 27/SL is a studio condenser microphone intended for general studio recording of vocals, instruments and ambiance as well as live sound reinforcement applications. The microphone features a side-address cardioid condenser element, providing a focused pick up while minimizing ambiance and noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone. Cardioid patterns are particularly useful while capturing in close proximity to monitors and noisy environments.

The 1 inch, externally biased, 24 Karat gold-layered Mylar diaphragm provides a smooth frequency response and warm sonic presence. The transformer-less output design and Class A circuitry result in a high output signal and low noise floor. A 3-position low-frequency roll-off switch eliminates hum and noise at low frequencies and an internal three stage "pop" grille reduces plosive and breath noises.
