  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect
  • Integrated three-stage ‘pop” protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise
  • Internal shock mount reduces handling and stand noise

Applications

Some typical applications for the KSM27 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM27 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.

  • Voice — solo, background, voice-over, broadcasting
  • Acoustic instruments — such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Electric instruments such as guitar and bass
  • Wind instruments — brass and woodwind
  • Low frequency instruments — such as double bass, electric bass, kick drum
  • Overhead miking — drums or percussion
  • Ensembles — choral or orchestral
  • Room ambiance pick-up — guitar amplifier or drums

Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement strongly affect the sound obtained from miking a source, especially with a high resolution microphone like the KSM27. You may need to experiment with microphone placement and room treatments to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
