•Class A transformerless preamplifier circuitry eliminates cross-over distortion for improved linearity across the full frequency range.
•Embossed high-compliance diaphragm provides extended low-frequency response.
•Ultra-thin gold-layered low-mass Mylar® diaphragm for excellent transient response
•15 dB attenuation switch for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL)
•Switchable low-frequency filter provides greater flexibility to reduce background noise or to counteract proximity effect.
•Integrated three-stage pop protection grille reduces "pop" and other breath noise
•Internal shock mount reduces transmission of handling noise
•Replacement cartridge: RK374
Performance Characteristics •Extended frequency response
•Very low self-noise
•Exceptional low-frequency reproduction
•High output level
•High input SPL capability
•No cross-over distortion
•Extremely uniform polar response
•Superior common mode rejection and suppression of radio frequency interference
Applications Some typical applications for the KSM32 are listed below. Microphone use however is a matter of personal taste. The KSM32 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed. •Voice -- solo background voice-over broadcasting
•Acoustic instruments -- such as piano guitar drums percussion strings
•Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
•Low frequency instruments -- such as double bass electric bass kick drum
•Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
•Ensembles -- choral or orchestral
•Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums
Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement have significant effects on the sound obtained when miking a source. You may need to experiment with these variables to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
