Product Description

Tailored to the instrument miking needs of professional musicians and sound engineers, the Shure SM94LC Condenser Instrument Microphone is ideal for both live performance and sound recording. This unidirectional electret condenser microphone features a smooth, flat frequency response free of either a presence peak or a low-frequency rolloff, making it a perfect choice for all types of musical instruments.

The SM94LC is equally at home in sound reinforcement systems or in sound studios and motion picture/ TV scoring stages. When used with the optional wind-screen, the SM94 can be used by vocalists and speech-makers who desire a wide, flat response with minimum coloration.
