Shure SM81 Overview

  • 1Description

Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, this Shure SM81-LC Microphone Kit gives you a cardioid-pattern condenser microphone as well as a reflection filter, a microphone cable, and a mic stand. The microphone can be used for live sound, broadcast, or recording, as it provides off-axis rejection and a flat frequency response between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. It also sports a rugged design.

The reflection filter mounts directly to stands and can be used to attenuate room noise and filter out unwanted acoustic reflection caused by the room. The XLR mic cable allows you to route the microphone into PAs or interfaces, and the mic stand is used to hold up the SM81-LC, so your hands are free for other tasks.

  • Shure SM81-LC Cardioid Condenser Mic

    The Shure SM81-LC is a cardioid condenser microphone used in live sound, broadcast, and recording scenarios. It features a flat-frequency response between 20 Hz and 20 kHz and provides a switchable low-pass filter that can be set to either 6 dB/octave or 18 dB/octave. Other features, such as a lockable -10 dB pad and SPL handling of 146 dB (with the pad on), make the microphone well suited for a variety of situations.

    This mic sports a cardioid polar pattern that helps it achieve a high level of gain before inducing feedback, ensuring the mic will work well on the stage. This polar pattern also sports excellent off-axis rejection, helping to retain isolation in live and studio recordings.

    The SM81-LC offers the kind of durability one would expect from Shure as well as low susceptibility to RF issues in the field. Its steel construction ensures the mic can be used in a variety of conditions, though phantom power is required to operate the SM81-LC.

    Key Features at a Glance
    • Uniform cardioid pick-up pattern provides lots of gain before feedback on stage, as well as rejection of off-axis sound
    • Flat-frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz for accurate reproduction of sound sources  
    • Selectable low-frequency response (flat, 6 dB/octave, or 18 dB/octave roll-off)
    • Vinyl-coated steel construction and stainless steel screen resist wear and abuse
    • High sound pressure level (SPL) handling
    • Low susceptibility to RFI
    • Lockable -10 dB attenuator switch
    • Performs over a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions
    • Phantom powered
    • Rugged and reliable

  • Auray RF-GN-10 Reflection Filter with Gooseneck

    Featuring a 10" profile that allows it to fit into tight spaces where other reflection filters would be impractical, the RF-GN-10 Reflection Filter with Gooseneck from Auray can be used to absorb and diffuse external noise and acoustic reflections when recording drums, pianos, electric and acoustic guitars, vocals, and more. Its highly adjustable gooseneck attaches directly onto mic stands or boom arms for precise and accurate placement.

    Its construction of high-density acoustic foam and a perforated aluminum shield prevents sound from reflecting back into your microphone, resulting in higher quality recordings free from noise caused by less than ideal room acoustics.

    Versatile Applications
    The RF-GN-10 is optimized for use in recording studios, acoustically-untreated rooms, or for desktop recording. It attenuates room noise and unwanted acoustic reflections when recording vocals, piano, drums, guitars, or practically any acoustic instrument
    Acoustic Foam
    High-density acoustic foam works with the perforated aluminum shield to absorb unwanted room noise as well as acoustic reflections to isolate the microphone
    Compact Design
    The ten-inch width of the RF-GN-10 allows it to fit into tight spaces that are too small or narrow for regular-sized reflection filters
    Gooseneck
    The thick and sturdy (1/2" wide) flexible gooseneck provides secure mounting, and allows precise placement of the reflection filter for optimum results
    Attaches to Mic Stand or Boom Arm
    The gooseneck's clamp attaches directly to a mic stand. For precise placement of the reflection filter in tight spaces, the RF-GN-10 can also be attached to a mic stand boom arm
    Lightweight & Sturdy
    Metal alloy design and compact size make the RF-GN-10 easy to carry and capable of withstanding the rigors of transport

  • Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 25' (7.6 m), Black

    The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (25') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.

    Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    98% braided shield offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Cast zinc shell and chuck style strain relief.

  • Auray MS-5220T Short Tripod Microphone Stand with Telescoping Boom

    The Auray MS-5220T Short Tripod Microphone Stand with Telescoping Boom features durable, steel construction.
