The Shure SM 86 is a cardioid (uni-directional) condenser handheld microphone intended for use in sound-reinforcement and recording applications. The cardioid pattern is effective in reducing ambient, off-axis noise making it a suitable option for use near stage monitors, loud instruments etc. The condenser element requires between 11 to 52 Volts DC phantom power and produces a sensitivity far greater than that of dynamic microphones. Condenser elements provide higher output levels, frequency response, and dynamic range resulting in studio-level sonic quality. A built-in 3-stage shock-mount minimizes handling noise and an internal windscreen reduces noise caused by wind and breath sounds. It's rugged metal construction is made to withstand the rigors of touring and daily use.
