Product Details

What is the KSM32 best suited to?

The KSM32 can be used on an almost endless list of applications, some of which include vocals, acoustic and wind instruments, low frequency instruments such as double bass and kick drum and various overhead miking applications. The KSM32 is equally at home on the stage or in the studio.

What characteristics can I expect when using a KSM32?

You can expect a smooth, neutral reproduction with full character. The KSM32 is a clear, accurate and detailed mic with a full and extended bass response, although the inclusion of both gentle and steep high-pass filters allows the bass end to be tamed very effectively if need be. Performance characteristics also include very low self noise and high input SPL capability

What is the difference between the KSM32/CG and the KSM32/SL ?

The difference between the two microphones is the colour, as well as the accessories that are included with each model:

  • 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
