The KSM32: A Permanent Resident in Every Studio
Shure KSM32 At-a-Glance:
Versatile Studio Mic
The KSM32's frequency response with presence peaks at 7kHz and 10kHz makes it ideal for vocals, but the high SLP handling opens it up to use for a number of louder sources as well. Engage the 15dB pad and park the KSM32 in front of a guitar cabinet or over a drum kit with no fear of distortion. Anywhere you need to make sure that every detail of the sound is accurately captured, the KSM32 should be near the top your list.
Built-in Pad and Roll-off Filter
With the built-in pad and roll-off, the KSM32 can be tailored for use in loud applications or engage the roll-off filter to minimize proximity effect and place the mic up close on the sound source. A built-in 3-stage pop filter virtually eliminates the need for an external pop shield, and the internal shockmount greatly reduces handling noise.
For Studio or Stage
Equipped with a cardioid polar pattern (along with the aforementioned internal shockmount) the KSM32 can function equally well on stage as it does in the studio. The cardioid pattern helps isolate the KSM32 from other sound sources on stage. And the pop filter allows a singer to use it on stage for superb sound on vocals without pops.

Awesome Drum OHs
by Jonathan Jorge from Riverside, CAI got the chance to use these the other day while recording drum tracks and was blown away with the sound that I was able to get from these! They did a great job with the overall sound of the kit, but... read more [+] I especially appreciated the clean and bright sounds of the cymbals. I would highly recommend these getting a pair of these for drum drum OHs. close [-]

by fromThese are great as drum overheads. I used these today on a project and they blew away mics costing twice as much. I also tried a pair of Neumann km 184s, Shure SM81s, and AKG c414s and none of them ... read more [+]could compare. A spaced pair of these does a great job of picking up the whole kit. If your one of the people who thinks overheads are just to pick up cymbals, these aren't for you, but for anyone who knows what over heads are meant for, these are your best bet. close [-]

The Best Microphone I have ever used
by Jake Saltus from Im here, Im there, Im everywhere.I have been using this mic (ksm 32/sl) for about 3 years now. I have used Rode, Neumann, Blue, and everything else under the son. I love it for its clarity. A rare frequency response, natural with onl... read more [+]y a few slight bumps in the 5 k range. The result is you get back the vocal you put in. Im very obsessive over my vocals sounding the way i picture in my mind and so far this is the only mic that does it. Believe it or not for me it knocked the Neumann tlm 103 and u 87 out of the water. Many would disagree but with mics it depends on the singer some need exaggeration in some frequencies and other dont. i myself have a rather thick vocal so i need this mic's sonic properties to thin it down a little. Well im off to sing stuff bye. close [-]

Excellent mic for recording! Its flat response makes it great for multi-applications: Choir, Big Band, wonderful on vocals male and female, drum overheads and strong enough to handle the sound pressure level of Marshall guitar amps.
