    Seriously Good

    I happened upon this mic when I was recording a band at a new studio and forgot to bring my standard overhead mics. I was extremely happy with the transparency, clarity, and versatility of this mic, that I wound up purchasing a pair for myself. They're built like a tank and I am in love with their ability to capture the source at hand.

    Great condenser for the price.

    Using with a Bose L-1 with a Martin acoustic and harmonica. Love it!

    Just the right side address mic

    First used for a bluegrass band performing in a park. Bass player, Banjo and Mandolin shared. All came over the PA very nicely, and they were able to switch positions easy for each break. The bass just blended right it. Nice.tone and coverage, no feedback.

    This microphone is amazing. It is small and rugged and completely portable and the response is amazing. It requires very little extra body even including EQ or compression for the voice work that I use it for on The Less Desirables podcast. Almost makes my SM7B sound wimpy. I love this mic. I have 3 on the podcast, one for my co-host one for my color commentator and one for any guest we have (I use the SM7B). I have to do the most post-production on the SM7B and almost nothing with the 27s.

    Very Nice!

    I've had this mic for about a month and I really enjoy using it. My vocals are really dynamic and this mic is able to handle it. The vocal replication is accurate but not harsh. The Shure SM27 is a microphone that I highly recommend. Very Nice!

    SHURE KSM 27

    This stuff is great at an affordable price tag n a bit more in high frequency than lower end but a KSM 32 would be more of a proffesional touch.

    Excellent for live guitar

    I use the SM27 on one side of my stereo guitar rig to fatten up the sound in the FOH system. Mixed with a Sennheiser e609,for attack,the SM27 rounds out the sound and adds a nice,full and balanced tone that always get noticed. Shure makes microphones that can take a beating and keep on working,as my thirty year old SM57s can attest,and that represents real value.

    I'm disappointed. Too much high end response and not enough warmth. I have to spend too much time on EQ in the software to get the vocal sound I want. It also is very easy to overload this mic through the preamp. I have to back the preamp down to 1.5 to get my normal levels the firewire control surface to the softwate.
