Shure SM81 Condenser Mic


The legendary SM81 is an industry-standard, flat-response cardioid condenser microphone, featuring a wide frequency response and low self-noise. Highly versatile, the SM81’s renowned sonic accuracy is a constant choice around the world for acoustic stage and studio performance, including guitar, piano and drum overhead applications.

 

Features

  • 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response
  • Flat response curve for accurate reproduction of sound sources 
  • Low noise and high output clipping level 
  • Low distortion over a wide range of load impedances 
  • Cardioid polar pattern, uniform with frequency and symmetric about axis, providing maximum rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sounds
  • Low RF susceptibility  
  • Selectable low-frequency response: flat, 6 or 18 dB/octave rolloff
  • 0 dB/10 dB lockable attenuator switch
  • Phantom powering (DIN 45 596 voltages of 12 to 48 Vdc)
  • Rugged steel construction for durability
  • Field-usable over wide range of temperature and humidity conditions

 

Specifications
