The transformerless Class-A output circuitry provides a noise-free-output signal path while maintaining high gain levels.

There is a 3-position low-frequency roll-off switch, eliminating low-frequency rumble noise and counteracting proximity effect. The KSM141/SL handles high sound-pressure levels and features a 3-position pad switch providing attenuation at 0, 15, 25 dB. This allows for confident miking of instruments high in transient response such as drums, percussion, and brass. The microphone is also suitable for recording piano, strings, guitar, and woodwinds. The KSM141/SL ships with a case, a microphone clip, and a foam windscreen.

Switchable Patterns

Class-A Transformerless Circuitry

The transformerless, Class-A output circuitry provides a noise free output signal path while maintaining high gain levels.

3-Position Low-Frequency Roll-Off Switch

The KSM141/SL provides flexible low-frequency attenuation, eliminating low-frequency noise and rumble.

3-Position Pad Switch

The 0, 15, and 25 dB Pad switch adds greater SPL-handling allowing the microphone to withstand high audio levels without distortion.

Wide Frequency Response

The microphone offers a wide 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response making it a flexible microphone for a variety of applications.
