Shure KSM44A/SL Large-Diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone


Featuring integral pop protection and shock-mounting plus a multipattern true condenser capsule and transparent Class-A circuitry with ultralow self-noise, the Shure KSM44A/SL large-diaphragm microphone is built to deliver excellent transient response, neutral tone, and the flexibility to handle most sound sources and mic configurations. Its flat frequency response and selectable settings—two low-cut filter options and a -15 dB pad—make the KSM44A/SL honest and versatile, so it can be used on anything from vocals and guitars to drums and piano.

The cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8 polar patterns of the KSM44A/SL allow it work optimally as a close mic, room mic, or single mic for multiple instruments. The built-in pop protection utilizes three separate layers to minimize noise from vocal plosives, breaths, and even light wind. Internal shock-mounting helps to decouple the mic from sources of vibration that could otherwise transfer from the mic body to the capsule. Being a solid-state XLR condenser mic, the KSM44A/SL requires 48V phantom power. Since it comes with a ShureLock shockmount, ShureLock swivel adapter, velveteen pouch, and hard shell carrying case, it is equally ready for the studio and the stage.

Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology
Class-A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely wide frequency response, and no crossover distortion, minimizing harmonic and intermodulation distortions
Impressive Performance
4 dB of self-noise and max SPL of 131 dB for a total dynamic range of 127 dB (measured in cardioid mode with the pad off)
Three Polar Patterns
Multiple polar patterns including cardioid (picks up sounds directly in front of the mic and is least sensitive to those in back), omnidirectional (picks up sounds from all directions), and figure-8 (picks up equally from the front and back of the mic while rejecting sounds from the sides) for flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
Excellent Transient Response
Dual, 1" externally biased, ultra-thin, 2.5 μm, 24kt gold-layered, low-mass diaphragms provide superior transient response
Subsonic Filter
Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz
-15 dB Pad
Switchable -15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL)
Low-Cut Filters
3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted stand vibration noise or counteract proximity effect
3-Stage Pop Filter
Integrated 3-stage pop protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise
Internal Shockmount
Internal shockmount reduces transmission of handling noise
Includes ShureLock Cristal elastic shockmount, ShureLock Cristal swivel adapter, velveteen mic pouch, and hard shell carrying case
