Overview

A versatile, flat-response mic for acoustic and high volume performance applications.

The SM137 is a versatile, flat-response cardioid condenser probe microphone with an ultra-thin diaphragm for a frequency response that combines a smooth high-end with a tight, controlled low-end and a 15db pad for natural sound reproduction in both acoustic and high-volume performance applications.

Features

  • Ultra-thin diaphragm for smooth high end and tight, controlled low end
  • 15dB pad for performance consistency across a wider range of high SPL sources
  • Low self-noise and transformerless preamplifier circuitry

SM137 Condenser Microphone
  • Cartridge Type: Permanently Biased Condenser
  • Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000Hz
  • Directional Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Output Impedance: 150? (actual)
  • Attenuation Switch (0dB or 15dB attenuation) Phantom Power: 48 VDC ± 4 VDC, (IEC-268-15/DIN 45 596), positive pins 2 and 3
  • Current Drain: 5.2 mA typical at 48 VDC
  • Common Mode Rejection: >50dB, 20Hz to 20kHz
  • Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on output pin 2 relative to pin 3
  • Dimensions: 24mm (0.950") diameter, 162mm (6.375") long
  • Weight: 195g (6.9oz..)
  • Sensitivity (typical, at 1000Hz; 1 Pa = 94dB SPL): -41dBV/Pa
  • Self-noise (typical, equivalent SPL; A-weighted (IEC 651)): 19dB
  • Maximum SPL@ 1000Hz:
