When you need perfection, the KSM32 delivers! Offering natural, clear sound reproduction and flexible operation, the KSM32 is one of the preeminent side-entry microphones in the world. This cardioid condenser microphone features Class A transformerless preamp circuitry, an ultra low mass 2.2 micron diaphragm for excellent transient response, and very low self-noise. The KSM32 works sonic magic on acoustic instruments, wind instruments, and vocals, giving them a vibrant, arresting tone that you can't take your ears off of. But perhaps the best quality of the KSM32 is its remarkable way of capturing those ephemeral, indefinable elements that can go into making a great recording, things like "atmosphere" and "ambience." Such a quality microphone comes with a high price, but when you listen to the results, you'll know it was worth it!
