Shure's SM27 micNiles, IL (March 11, 2008)--Shure has expanded its SM line of microphones with the introduction of the SM27 and SM137.
The SM27 is a large-diaphragm, side-address, cardioid condenser microphone that has a 1-inch, ultra-thin Mylar diaphragm for transient response, low-frequency reproduction, and a low self-noise (9.5 dB SPL) for recording or during live performances. The SM27 replaces the KSM27 model.
The SM137 is a cardioid probe microphone for instrument recording applications. It employs an ultra-thin diaphragm, and its 15 dB attenuator reportedly enables it to handle sound pressure levels as high as 154 dB SPL, for consistent reproduction of delicate acoustic as well as high-volume amplified instruments. The SM137 replaces the KSM109 model.
