The Shure KSM44A is a go-to mic you can count on for great results in just about any project. It's a premium-grade large-diaphragm side-address condenser microphone that features some of Shure's coolest and most useful technology. The dual-diaphragm design lets you select among cardioid, omnidirectional, or figure-8 pickup patterns, so no matter what your recording environment calls for, the KSM44A is ready! An internal pop filter adds an important layer of protection to the KSM44A when you record vocals or need to contend with air movement. Shure's ultra-quiet Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology also keeps your recordings free of noise, and the KSM44A's transformerless output eliminates unwanted coloration.
