SM81 SPL rating

FAQ #1119 Updated September 16, 2008

Question:

I've been looking all over, and I can't seem to find a specific published SPL rating for the SM81. I'm using a pair of them now for drum overheads as well as stereo live recording. Although I've never had distortion problems, I'm wondering what that number is.

Answer:

146dB SPL with 10 dB pad used.
