Shure KSM353/ED Overview

The KSM353/ED from Shure is a superior ribbon microphone designed for high-quality reproduction in the studio or concert hall. The mic is hand-assembled in the United States, and features the build quality that Shure mics are renowned for.

Shure outfitted the KSM353/ED with its proprietary Roswellite ribbon material, which has more strength and resilience than a conventional foil ribbon. The mic is also equipped with a custom ribbon-motor assembly, which helps tailor bass response and improve presence. A custom-wound double-shielded, full-size transformer keeps signal loss at a minimum and increases output.

The KSM353/ED's bi-directional polar pattern delivers totally symmetrical audio and superior off-axis rejection. Shure recommends using mic preamps with impedances of at least 1 kOhm to get optimal low-end and midrange performance. The mic offers a low noise floor, and an output level that's on par with moving-coil microphones.

Bi-directional polar pattern delivers premier, completely symmetrical audio with superior off-axis rejection
Revolutionary Roswellite proprietary ribbon material replaces traditional foil ribbons with high-tensile strength, toughness, and shape memory that provides superior resilience at extreme SPLs
Patented custom ribbon motor assembly tailors bass response without attenuating the overall output for full low and mid ranges, and superior upper range presence from a rising frequency response
Double-shielded matched full-sized transformer minimizes signal loss and maximizes output while reducing magnetic and RF interference from 90-degree placement, offset relative to the ribbon
146 dB SPL across 30 - 15,000 Hz frequency response ideal for capturing fast transients in vocals, acoustic instruments, and concert halls
Legendary Shure quality and superior construction from hand-assembly of machined steel, silver, gold, and aluminum materials, and housed in a pure stainless steel casing
