Shure SM86 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Shure SM86 reviews

    SM86 - Handheld Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity! This microphone has clear and accurate voice reproduction. I have a very low voice, and I had previous damage to my vocal chords that caused the base to be so dominant that I always sounded muffled when I used a microphone. This microphone is able to capture the higher tones so that my voice is clearly reproduced. It also captures nuances and is smooth. There is a base roll-off for when you get too close so that it doesn't distort. It is also very sturdy and looks good- I couldn't be more pleased.
