Featuring integral pop protection and shock-mounting plus a large-diaphragm true condenser capsule and transparent Class-A circuitry, the charcoal gray Shure KSM32/CG 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/CG honest and versatile, so it can be used on anything from vocals and guitars to drums and piano. The CG model comes with a ShureLock stand mount and zippered storage bag.

The uniform cardioid polar pattern of the KSM32/CG 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/CG 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 stand mount and zippered storage bag
