Product description

Product Description

Large single-diaphragm, side-address condenser microphone. Designed for studio use but rugged enough for live applications, the KSM27 has extremely low self-noise, and an extended frequency response specially tailored for vocal tracking and instrument recording.

From the Manufacturer

The Shure KSM27 is a side-address condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. Designed for studio use, but rugged enough for live applications, the KSM27 has an externally biased, 1-inch diaphragm, extremely low self-noise, and an extended frequency response specially tailored for vocal tracking and instrument recording.


  • Cardioid polar pattern - the most commonly used pattern for both studio and live applications
  • 1 inch, externally biased, ultra-thin, 24 Karat gold-layered, low mass, Mylar diaphragm provides superior transient response
  • Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion, while minimizing harmonic and intermodulation distortions
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz
  • Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect
  • Integrated three-stage 'pop" protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise
  • Internal shock mount reduces handling and stand noise
Performance Characteristics
  • Extended frequency response
  • Low self noise
  • Exceptional low-frequency reproduction
  • High output level
  • High input SPL capability
  • No crossover distortion
  • Extremely uniform polar response
  • Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference
  • ShureLockTM Rubber Isolated Shock Mount
  • Protective Velveteen Pouch
Some typical applications for the KSM27 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM27 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.
  • Voice -- solo, background, voice-over, broadcasting
  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Electric instruments such as guitar and bass
  • 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, especially with a high resolution microphone like the KSM27. You may need to experiment with microphone placement and room treatments to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
