Featuring integral pop protection and shock-mounting plus a large-diaphragm true condenser capsule and transparent Class-A circuitry, the champagne Shure KSM32/SL microphone is built to deliver excellent transient response and neutral tone in the studio or on stage. Its flat frequency response and selectable settings—two low-cut filter options and a -15 dB pad—make the KSM32/SL honest and versatile, so it can be used on anything from vocals and guitars to drums and piano. The SL model comes with a ShureLock shockmount, ShureLock stand mount, velveteen pouch, and hard shell carrying case.

The uniform cardioid polar pattern of the KSM32/SL helps reduce the capture of stage bleed and background noise, allowing you to achieve more gain and stronger direct sound. The built-in pop protection utilizes three separate layers to minimize noise from vocal plosives, breaths, and even light wind. Internal shock-mounting helps to decouple the mic from sources of vibration that could otherwise transfer from the mic body to the capsule. Being a solid-state XLR condenser mic, the KSM32/SL requires 48V phantom power.

Class-A Output Stage

Class-A transformerless preamplifier circuitry eliminates cross-over distortion for improved linearity across the full frequency range

Extended Low-Frequency Response

Embossed, high-compliance diaphragm provides extended low-frequency response

Excellent Transient Response

Ultra-thin, 2.5 μm, gold-layered, low-mass, Mylar diaphragm for excellent transient response

-15 dB Pad

-15 dB attenuation switch for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL)

Low-Cut Filter

Switchable low-frequency filter provides greater flexibility to reduce background noise or to counteract proximity effect

3-Stage Pop Filter

Integrated 3-stage pop protection grille reduces "pop" and other breath noise

Internal Shockmount

Internal shockmount reduces transmission of handling noise

Accessories

Includes ShureLock shockmount, ShureLock stand mount, velveteen pouch, and hard shell carrying case
