  • Excerpt: I’ll never say, “No” to the chance to try out a new condenser mic. Shure unleashed this addition to their fine stable of mics last year. I feel like I haven’t given it a full test, because I started putting it up in front of electric guitar amps and have kept doing so. It has a great low-end presence that I really dig, and the mids and highs sound pretty natural. Check out Sleater-Kinney ’s upcoming CD, All Hands on the Bad One, to hear it in use.

Shure KSM32: CARDIOID CONDENSER MICROPHONE

Mix Online
1 February 1999
  • Excerpt: The folks at Shure really know how to package a microphone to make one drool with anticipation. This mic looks good! Fortunately, the sleek look mirrors its fine performance, which is not entirely surprising, given Shure's success with other condenser mic designs, such as the industry-standard SM85, SM87 and SM98.

"Very even sound." - Kierkes

  • Excerpt: The Shure KSM32 in practice is an incredible workhorse in the studio. The fact that it is supposedly tailored doesn't prevent this microphone from fulfilling a great number of roles. If one uses a KSM32 on everything, be it overheads, guitar cabs, lead vocals, backing vocals, a number of other instruments, the one thing that everyone is afraid o...

  • Excerpt: The Shure KSM32 is a great option for a large diaphragm condenser microphone in any studio. It's best for the home studio owner looking for a great microphone at a great price, as it's got a professional sound without having to spend a ton of money. There are plenty of options in the KSM series, but the KSM32 is as good as any for the price. ...

  • Excerpt: I bought it in the USA five years ago. Very smooth sound with my Avalon preamp, perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. It's my universal microphone. Incredible value for money (way ahead of Chinese mics). Standard mic in US recording studios and on stage (for overheads, etc.).

  • Excerpt: I've owned mine for 3 years now. It's works great. Dependable, and produces a great sound. Gives you a clear, sharp sound. I like that you can change the frequency response. I have a very low voice. I haven't tried any other models before but I'm think of upgrading to the Shure KSM44. I figure, it's a higher price, and better quality than this, ...

"Shure KSM 32 Condenser Microphone" - MGR/Anonymous

29 June 2001
  • Excerpt: When I set out to buy a really good large condenser mic for my home studio, I actually hadn't even considered this mic. I went to Guitar Center looking to purchase a Neumann TLM 103 and was fully prepared to plunk down $900 for it. When I got to talking with the salesperson, however, he told me that I could save $450 and get a mic that, in his o...
