You'll Love This Ribbon Mic for Its Sound — and Its Toughness!
Shure KSM353 Ribbon Microphone at a Glance:
Roswellite ribbon element
If the fear of damaging a ribbon mic's fragile ribbon element has made you hesitant about adding one to your locker, worry no more. Shure's KSM353 uses a stronger element made of Roswellite material, which has better "shape memory" than conventional materials. This means the KSM353 can withstand high SPLs without ill effects — and still give you the smooth ribbon-mic character you're looking for.
In addition to its Roswellite ribbon element, the KSM353 comes packed with premium components. Inside, for example, you'll find a double-shielded transformer, which gives you robust output while minimizing RF and magnetic interference. This is a must for modern recording situations. A custom ribbon motor assembly tailors bass response without attenuating the overall output, so you get full lows and mids. You also get great upper-range presence from this mic. This hand-assembled mic includes high-quality machined steel, silver, gold, and aluminum materials throughout, and you can expect it to remain a mainstay in your studio for years to come.
You get classic, smooth performance, even on loud sources
You'll definitely be able to put this mic's figure-8 pickup pattern to work in your studio setup. The KSM353 delivers completely symmetrical audio on axis, while its off-axis rejection is stellar. Like other great ribbon mics, the KSM353 provides smooth character, but it also gives you plenty of articulation and detail. Unlike other great ribbon mics, however, this one can handle serious SPLs.
