The KSM44 multipattern condenser mic is the second offering in Shure's KSM microphone line. It follows on the heels of the cardioid-only KSM32, which was introduced a couple of years ago.

These are excellent, large-diaphragm microphones. I've used them on bass instruments (double bass, bassoon, contrabassoon) with great success. I'm looking forward to trying them on vocals in the future!

If you're looking for a deal get this microphone. The new model costs 2x as much. New pre-amp that reduces self noise by 3db. I would challenge anyone to distinguish between this one and the new one. Same capsule and outstanding sound quality. Blows the TLM103 out of the water in my opinion.

Solid, super well built professional STUDIO microphone, solid state/transformer-less 'pletharos' design. Multi-pattern. Incredibly low self noise. LARGE diaphragm condenser.

Many of Shure's products have become industry/studio standards throughout the years because they just work, and work well. Their mics seem to "get the job done" without frills. Their products remind me of 'military grade'; constructed to be functional and to last.

The shure Mic. Is an awsome Mic. I use it mainly on vocals. It gives body and presence to the vocal track. My vocal track sits nicely in the mix. It's a great Mic.

The engineer at the studio where I recorded my first 5 CD's began using the KSM 44 on my third project, and I love the sound he got. He used it for my vocal (solo) and for my male background vocalist (tenor/baritone). I think he was using an A/T mic for my female BGV.

The Shure KSM44 is Shure's highest offering in the condenser microphone territory. It has been and always will be compared to its cheaper cousin, the

Excellent quality item with lots of flexibility in usage options. Top of the Shure special purpose microphones.

The Shure KSM44 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone that is designed for use in the recording studio. This is probably the highest end condenser microphone that Shure currently has to offer, as of course they are best known for their dynamic mics.
