Product Description

The Shure KSM141 Instrument Condenser Microphone is a dual-pattern mic with the Shure KSM pedigree.
The KSM141 is designed to mic instruments including: acoustic guitar, drum overheads, high-hat cymbals, and more. It is a dual-pattern mic (cardioid or omnidirectional) with Shure's Class A transformerless preamp circuitry, an ultra-thin, highly sensitive diaphragm, and a 3-position low frequency filter switch to limit unwanted background noise and proximity effect. It microphone can reproduce sounds between 20 and 20,000 Hz and features a switchable pad (15 or 25 dB). Includes a carry case/pouch, mic clip and Popper Stopper windscreen.

The Shure KSM141 is an end-addressed condenser microphone with mechanically switching dual polar patterns (cardioid and omnidirectional). Designed for studio use, yet rugged enough for live applications, the KSM141 can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). Its low self-noise and extended frequency response make it ideal for recording musical instruments.

Shure KSM141 Features

  • A mechanical polar pattern switch for highly consistent cardioid and true omnidirectional polar patterns. Provides flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
  • Ultra-thin, 2.5 micron, 24 karat gold-layered, low mass Mylar® diaphragm for superior transient response
  • 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
  • Three-position switchable pad (0 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
  • Three-position switchable low-frequency filter to reduce background noise and counteract proximity effect

Performance Characteristics

  • Extended frequency response
  • Low self noise
  • Exceptional reproduction of low-frequency sounds
  • Can withstand high sound pressure levels (SPL)
  • High output level
  • No crossover distortion
  • Uniform polar response
  • Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference

APPLICATIONS
Some typical applications for the KSM141 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM141 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.

  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
  • Low frequency instruments -- such as double bass, electric bass, kick drum
  • Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
  • Ensembles -- choral or orchestral
  • Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums

    Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement strongly affect the sound obtained from miking a source. You may need to experiment with microphone placement and room treatments to achieve the best overall sound for each application.

  • Sensitivity (typical, at 1000 Hz; 1 Pa = 94 dB SPL): -37 dBV/Pa
  • Self-noise (typical, equivalent SPL; A-weighted (IEC 651)): 14 dB
  • Maximum SPL*:
    • 5000 Ohm load: 145 (160, 170) dB
    • 2500 Ohm load (Attenuator on): 139 (154, 164) dB
    • 1000 Ohm load: 134 (149, 159) dB
  • Output Clipping Level*:
    • 5000 Ohm load: 15 dBV
    • 2500 Ohm load: 9 dBV
