New, in- box, unused Shure KSM32 microphone kit. Includes microphone, shock mount, original case and all original packaging.
Note, product does not come with the silver case pictured. Shure has redesigned its KSM 32 case, which is now a black leather-type material. The case is still strong and built to withstand tough conditions.
Product Description An embossed single-diaphragm, side-address, cardioid condenser microphone for highly critical studio recording and live sound productions. The Shure KSM32 offers an extended frequency response for an open, natural sounding reproduction of the original sound source. Amazon.com Designed for studio use but rugged enough for live applications, the Shure KSM32 side-address condenser microphone with cardioid polar pattern features a permanently-biased 3/4-inch diaphragm, extremely low self-noise, and an extended frequency response specially tailored for vocal tracking and instrument recording.

Key Features Class A, transformerless preamplifier circuitry eliminates cross-over distortion for improved linearity across the full frequency range. Embossed, high-compliance diaphragm provides extended low-frequency response. Ultra-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, Mylar diaphragm for excellent transient response 15 dB attenuation switch for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL) Switchable low-frequency filter provides greater flexibility to reduce background noise or to counteract proximity effect.
Integrated three-stage pop protection grille reduces "pop" and other breath noise Internal shock mount reduces transmission of handling noise Performance Characteristics

Some typical applications for the KSM32 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM32 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed. Voice -- solo, background, voice-over, broadcastingAcoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, stringsWind instruments -- brass and woodwindLow frequency instruments -- such as double bass, electric bass, kick drumOverhead miking -- drums or percussionEnsembles -- choral or orchestralRoom ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drumsSpecifications Type: Permanently Biased Condenser Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz Directional Polar Pattern: Cardioid/Omnidirectional Output Impedance: 150 ohms (actual) Attenuation Switch: 0 or -15 dB attenuation Low Frequency Response Switch: Flat; 6 db/octave below 115 Hz; -18 dB/octave below 80 Hz Phantom Power: 48 Vdc +/- 4 Vdc (IEC26815/DIN 45 596), positive pins 2 and 3 Current Drain: 4.65 mA typical at 48 Vdc Common Mode Rejection: ≥50 dB, 20 Hz to 20 kHz Sensitivity (typical, at 1000 Hz; 1 Pa = 94 dB SPL): -36 dBV/Pa (16 mV) Selfnoise (typical, equivalent SPL; A-weighted, IEC 651): 13 dB Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on output pin 2 relative to pin 3 Weight: 17.3 ounces
