Product Description

A rugged and versatile large-diaphragm, side-address cardioid microphone, with low self-noise and extended frequency response, the Shure SM27 Condenser Microphone picks up vocal and instrument nuances with clarity. Durable Shure construction features three separate mesh layers that reduce wind and breath noise. The SM27 is equally comfortable on stage or in the studio and works just as hard as you do.

Shure SM27 Condenser Microphone Features

  • Uniform cardioid pattern for superior off axis rejection
  • Superior transient response from a low-mass large Mylar diaphragm
  • Flat, neutral frequency response for natural reproduction on stage or in the studio
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect for consistent, extended low-end
  • Durable metal construction
  • Three separate mesh layers reduces wind and breath noise
  • 15dB pad for performance consistency across a wider range of high SPL sources

Ease of Use

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's Shure. If anyone knows how to make a durable mic it's them. Very solid feel to it with absolutely no flex or shift or rattles, It's built like a tank.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
It's a great sounding condenser in a durable package, how often does that happen? The built in filters and included shock mount are all just icing. The directionality of the cardioid polar pattern isn't really a feature, but it sure is handy. It means that this isn't going to be picking up a lot of noise from behind the mic, only the sound in front of it.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Easier to use than most condensers. The built in high pass filter with two slopes to choose is very handy as is the -15db gain switch. I used both on the first thing i recorded with it, my cajon. The gain switch for recording bass from the port, and the high pass switch for the snare. This mic isn't as sensitive as other condensers that I've used, I was a bit put off by that but combined with the very low self noise and excessive shock mounting (internal and external shock mounts) it really does make it easier to record instruments. For the first time I was able to cut a drum track to re-align hits without having to filter out the noise between strikes.
How is the tone?
Clear and flat for the most part, it raises at around 5k hz to 9k hz which gives it a bright tone, but not harsh, Think Yamaha sting instruments/piano bright. That's probably not the right tone for speech or voice over work with most voices, but it really lends it's self to a lot of acoustic instruments.
