Universal Audio SD-5 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Add vintage sound and a vintage look to your live-sound and studio-recording setup with the Universal Audio SD-5, a supercardioid dynamic microphone featuring rugged all-metal construction and a cool, retro look. The SD-5's hand-selected dynamic capsule can handle extreme SPLs, while the narrow, supercardioid polar pattern effectively rejects off-axis sounds, making the mic ideal for kick drums, bass amps, and most low-frequency instruments.

The SD-5 uses UA's award-winning Hemisphere Microphone Modeling technology to give you the authentic sound of iconic dynamic mics from Shure, Sennheiser, AKG, and more, in real time with Apollo or natively in your DAW (using the included Hemisphere plug-in). You can also shape the sound of your recordings using filter, proximity, and axis controls—even after tracking—and get album-ready results, fast.

Easily Capture your Best Bass Sounds
  • From stage to studio, the SD-5’s supercardioid design, ultrahigh SPL capability, and extraordinary isolation give you powerful heft and thump.
  • Move the SD-5 around your source to get the perfect amount of detail and bass response without using EQ, and capture all the transients and tone of your instruments.
