Applications: The KSM44/SL is designed as a premium vocal microphone for studio recording. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. Here is a non-exhaustive list of common applications:

  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings

  • 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
Of course, both the acoustic environment and microphone placement have significant effects on the sound obtained when miking any sound source. We encourage users to experiment with these variables to achieve the best overall sound.

This is Shure's flagship studio condenser mic. It is also the most versatile and underrated/overlooked mic on the planet.

This is the best sounding microphone under $1000. You will not find a better mic for around $600. It is built like a tank, has superb frequency responses, is one of the quietest(7db self-noise) I have ever heard, and sounds just as good as those uber-expensive German mics. With the adjustability of patterns and pads, you can use it on anything. Voice, guitars, drums, up-close, overhead, whatever. The sound when matched to a quality tube preamp is amazing.

This mic has delivered everything it promised and more. I have a decent list of clients that are completely blown-away by this obscure powerhouse. Go ahead and read other reviews online. Everyone is impressed and extremely pleased with the Shure KSM44. I am getting a second one and will keep them forever as the first mics I grab out of the locker.

Thank you Shure! How about a tube mic to top this one?
