I had been looking at this ksm9 for quit some time.This microphone I bought is for Indian classical concerts. I was thinking between ksm9 and kms105I had a chance to buy kms105 on sale on black Friday. Consistently reference of low to no feedback with ksm9 is what helped my decision. Feedback can destroy a otherwise great concert. As soon as we did a test song. The clarity is amazing no feedback even with the microphone pointing straight at the speaker. No regrets.

Amazing quality!

Best sounding microphone ever! amazing sound quality.

Amazing Mic

My sales engineer at sweetwater has advised me several times to pick up this mic. I took his advice and he has never steered me wrong during our 10 year history. This mic is the real deal amazing sound clarity and response with no feedback issues. I have used tons of mics over the years and I promise you, you will be completely satisfied with this product. I am gearing up for a new album release and plan on picking up another KSM9 and a KSM9 wireless system before touring. Thanks again Paul ext. 1380

I Fall In Love With My Voice Each Time

I have been a Shure junkie for the longest time and graduated from the SM58 to the SM58 BETA over the years. But my newest acquisition, the Shure KSM9, just blows me away every time. Was one of my best decisions ever to buy one. Performing in India, one rarely gets great sounding live options, and I'm done screeching my lungs out just to be audible. Enter KSM9. Whether you're on stage or at your home studio, it makes singing effortless and an absolute pleasure. Finally, as stupid as this may sound, I fall in love with my voice every time!

Yes, I'm blown away! Being a faithful customer of Sweetwater for many years, and having purchased several musical products, I have come rely on my favorite salesperson, Brian Cravens' advice. He's right again!!! This microphone can make anybody sound better, even me! I was having a lot of feedback on stage with other instruments and floor monitors, but now my problems have been solved. This mike can take care of most all demanding situations. Brian, you're right on target again with this one . . . I'm so glad I purchased it, and Sweetwater couldn't be a greater bunch of guys to do business. No, they are not paying me to say this, but it's the truth. Buying a microphone from a business that are both tops is HEAVENLY!

Sweetwater Advice

Mark Magdich

Having been a singer for well over 20 years, I have always looked for a microphone that would deliver excellent output and exceptional consistancy. The KSM9 is the first microphone that actually made singing easier! I could hear every thing I was doing! The supercardioid setting helped get my monitor volume up to a level that didn't have the soundman fighting with an EQ all night. I highly, HIGHLY recommend the KSM9 for every singer out there - no matter what style you sing!
