It includes a rubber suspension shock mount ideal for isolating stand vibrations in recording applications, a velveteen storage pouch that protects it when not in use, and a case.

Features

  • Uniform cardioid pattern for superior off axis rejection
  • Superior transient response from a low-mass large Mylar® diaphragm
  • Flat, neutral frequency response for natural reproduction on stage or in the studio
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect for consistent, extended low-end
  • Durable metal construction.

    Comments about Shure SM27 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Case, Shockmount, & Bag:

    I really like this mic. It is very versatile. I use two for drum overheads and they do a great job. They capture the full spectrum of frequencies naturally and transparently. They shine on vocals and acoustic guitar. A solid workhorse mic for a project studio.

    SM27 Mic Great Studio Mic

    By Sidney

    from Roanoke, VA

    Comments about Shure SM27 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Case, Shockmount, & Bag:

    The SM27 is always my mic of choice in the studio.
    I love the SM27 condenser microphone in my studio. I use a SM58 when I sing out but when I record, I always use the SM27. I have recorded sounds, main vocals, backup vocals and this mic is great for singers like me with a powerful voice.
    The results are great whether I'm singing softly close to it or if I have to step away from it in order to wail out some really dynamic vocals. I am a recording artist who works alone, creating my own instrument and vocal tracks. This mic has been a indispensable workhorse in my studio.
    For 300 bucks you can't ask for a better mic in my opinion.

    Shure KSM27 Microphone

    By Bill Duncan

    from Lenoir, North Carolina

    Comments about Shure SM27 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Case, Shockmount, & Bag:

    I've had this microphone for 3 years and the more I use it, the more I want to use it.

    If you don't need different patterns and caridoid works, then this microphone will certainly do the job. Maintaining proper distance is important in vocals. How many times have you heard that? But, maintain your distance, control your room acoustics, and the results will reward you with clarity and buttery smoothness.

    Great microphone, good value. It's a Shure
    Bass roll off, spl control.
    It's a Shure.
    It's a Shure. It's USA made.
