Product Description

The Shure KSM9 CG Handheld Condenser Microphone is a dual-pattern (cardioid and supercardioid) mic designed expressly for live vocal performance applications. The KSM9 removes the boundary between the studio and stage, offering the finest and clearest performance on modern high-end touring systems. The large dual diaphragm provides consistent polar response across the entire frequency range, for higher gain-before-feedback and minimal proximity effect for clear vocal reproduction.

Shure KSM9 Features

  • Dual .75-inch gold layered, low mass Mylar diaphragms provide superior frequency response.
  • Dual polar patterns (cardioid and supercardioid) for maximum flexibility in a wide variety of performance applications.
  • Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier provides transparent, extremely fast transient response with no crossover distortion and minimal harmonic and intermodulation distortion.
  • Advanced suspension shock mount system that isolates cartridge from handling and stand noise.
  • Premium electronic components, including gold-plated internal and external connectors.
  • Three-stage grille reduces pop and breath noise
  • Shure KSM microphone series

Cardioid Pattern
Most sensitive to sounds directly in front of the microphone and is least sensitive to those in back. Cardioid is the most commonly used pattern in live sound applications. Its slightly wider pick-up pattern is more forgiving at picking up off-axis sound.

The narrower pattern provides greater rejection of off-axis sound and maximun gain before feedback. The supercardioid pattern is ideal for use in loud environments or applications in which sound sources are very close to each other.

Phantom Power
The KSM9 requires phantom power and performs optimally with a 48 Vdc supply (IEC-268-15/DIN 45 596). However, it will operate with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity with power supplies as low as 11 Vdc.

Three-pin (XLR) professional audio

Aluminum die cast construction with painted champagne or chacoal finish, and hardened steel mesh grille with painted finish.

*100 Hz to 20 kHz;THD < 1%.
**S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self-noise A-weighted.
