The Shure KSM137 is an end-address condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. Designed for studio use, yet rugged enough for live applications, the KSM137 can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). Its low self-noise and extended frequency response make it ideal for recording acoustic instruments, including low-frequency-range instruments.Shure's KSM-series studio condenser microphones balance exceptional sensitivity and flexibility with unmatched durability to accurately capture the widest variety of sound sources. Finely tuned condenser cartridges give voice to each of these elegant recording microphones.


- Highly consistent cardioid polar pattern
- Ultra-thin, 2.5 micron, 24 karat gold-layered, low mass Mylar(TM) diaphragm for superior transient response
- Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference
- Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response, no crossover distortion, and minimal harmonic and intermodulation distortion
- Premium electronic components, including gold-plated internal and external connectors
- Subsonic filter eliminates low frequency rumble (less than 17 Hz) caused by mechanical vibration
- 3-position switchable pad (0 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
- 3-position switchable low-frequency filter reduces background noise and counteracts proximity effect
- Wide 20Hz-20kHz frequency response is superb for vocals and instruments
