Excerpt: This mic differs from most unidirectional mics in having an extended low frequency response. This makes it ideal for piano, orchestral and pipe organ recording. I used a pair of these mics in a DIN stereo recording pattern (mics placed about 8 inches apart and angled 90 degrees) to record the tracker action pipe organ in our church with outstanding results.
Summary: Look out recording fanatics. This microphone is crystal clear with amazing tone! When used with a great pre amp you can hear every part of your voice. The shock mount is solid as a rock. Its durability is excellent. If your looking for a microphone that is great for the home and studio this is the one to get. Being able to hear your voice so well can help you learn how to sing. The tube sound is warm and with the phantom power it sounds crystal clear.
Summary: When I was first looking around for a great recording microphone that wasn't an outrageous price I looked at many but none had as good as reviews as this mic. From the first time I opened the box and took it out to now this mic has done nothing but sound amazing. I have had no problems what so ever with it and the sound quality is outstanding.
Excerpt: I do voice work in professional studios and over more than 30 years of experience, I find the KSM32 one of the finest sounding microphones I've ever used. It an extremely smooth sound and makes me sound better than I thought possible! I plan to build a small voice facility in my home for out of town clients and will definitely consider this microphone as my choice.
Excerpt: I own two Shure KSM32 studio condensor mics. It has a very natural sound. I bought them because when I used some Audio Technica Midnight Blues to record a band, I noticed bass guitar was missing, and also the bass drum. The frequency response curve of the KSM32 indicates it has very flat bass response. I used them on four concerts and the bass drum sounds awesome on the recording, the spectrum analyzer in Adobe Audition measures it at 54 Hz.
Summary: I am in highschool and work for my band director who records bands and choirs. We have a set of these and they are awesome. We use two of them in front of a whole Symphonic band and they pick up ever single instrument. Very good mic.
