Shure SM137 Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Pouch - Black

The SM137 is a versatile, flat-response cardioid condenser probe microphone.

The SM137 has an ultra-thin diaphragm for a frequency response that combines a smooth high-end with a tight, controlled low-end and a 15db pad for natural sound reproduction in both acoustic and high volume performance applications.

• Cardioid polar pattern to reduce the pickup of unwanted sounds
• Ultra-thin, 2.5um 24 karat gold-layered, low mass Mylar® diaphragm for superior transient response
• Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response, no crossover distortion, and minimal harmonic and intermodulation distortion
• Premium electronic components, including gold-plated internal and external connectors
• Two-position switchable pad (0 dB and 15 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)

Performance Characteristics
• Extremely uniform polar response
• Extended frequency response
• Minimal self-noise
• Exceptional low-frequency reproduction
• Able to withstand high SPLs
