Premium vocal condenser microphone with switchable hypercardioid and subcardioid polar patterns.
Consistent with legendary Shure microphone innovation, the KSM9 is the first handheld condenser with dual diaphragms and variable polar patterns. As a premium vocal microphone, the KSM9 captures vocal subtlety with extraordinary detail to deliver clear articulation, functional flexibility and precise vocal reproduction for live performance. Transformerless, Class A preamplifier circuitry and dual, gold-layered diaphragms capture a transparent sound, revealing every nuance and subtlety in a vocal performance. The KSM9 uses an advanced suspension shock mount to virtually eliminate handling noise even in the most demanding live environments.
The KSM9 is designed to capture and control the detailed sonic nuances of critical studio performance, while withstanding the punishment of professional live sound reinforcement. The frequency response of the two patterns are nearly identical, allowing performers to easily adapt to any venue. The cardioid pick-up pattern is ideal in live performances for musicians with in-ear monitors, providing a warm, full sound. This setting provides excellent gain before feedback, with minimal off-axis coloration. The supercardioid pick-up pattern provides maximum sound isolation and is ideal for applications in which there are high levels of ambient noise, or where multiple instruments or vocalists are close together.
The microphone grille consists of 3 separate mesh layers that act as an integral pop filter. This helps reduce wind and breath noise. Depending on the performer, an external pop-protection screen or windscreen mat be necessary when close-miking vocalists.
Maximum SPL capability, output clipping level, and dynamic range vary with the input load impedance of the preamplifier to which the microphone in connected. Shure recommends a minimum load impedance of 1000 Ohms. Most modern microphone preamplifiers meet this requirement. Higher impedance results in better performance for these specifications.
