Show full description »

Large single-diaphragm, side-address condenser microphone. Designed for studio use but rugged enough for live applications, the KSM27 has extremely low self-noise, and an extended frequency response specially tailored for vocal tracking and instrument recording.

Features

  • Cardioid polar pattern
  • 1 inch, externally biased, ultra-thin, 24 Karat gold-layered, low mass, Mylar® diaphragm provides superior transient response
  • Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion, while minimizing harmonic and intermodulation distortions
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz
  • Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
  • 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

Performance Characteristics

  • Extended frequency response
  • Low self noise
  • Exceptional low-frequency reproduction
  • High output level
  • High input SPL capability
  • No crossover distortion
  • Extremely uniform cardioid polar response
  • Superior common mode rejection, suppression of radio frequency interference

Applications

Microphone use is a matter of personal taste, and 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

Specifications

  • Cartridge Type: Externally Biased Condenser
  • Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz
  • Directional Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Output Impedance: EIA Rated at 150 ohms (140 ohms actual)
  • Attenuation Switch: 0 or 15 dB attenuation
  • Low Frequency response switch: flat; -6 db/octave below 115 Hz; -18 dB/octave below 80 Hz
  • Phantom Power: 48 Vdc +/- 4 Vdc (IEC­268­15/DIN 45 596), positive pins 2 and 3
  • Current Drain: 5.4 mA typical at 48 Vdc
  • Common Mode Rejection: >50 dB, 20 Hz to 20 kHz
  • Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on output pin 2 relative to pin 3
  • Dimensions and Weight: 53.0 mm (2.08 in.) maximum body diameter, 156.2 mm (6.15 in.) long; 642 grams (22.6 oz.)
  • Sensitivity (typical, at 1000 Hz; 1Pa = 94 dB SPL): -37 dBV/Pa
  • Self­noise (typical, equivalent SPL; A­weighted, IEC 651): 14 dB
  • Maximum SPL at 1000 Hz:
    • 2500 ohm load (Attenuator on): 137 (152) dB
    • 1000 ohm load (Attenuator on): 132 (147) dB
  • Output Clipping Level*:
    • 2500 ohm load: 7 dBV
    • 1000 ohm load: 1 dBV
  • Dynamic Range:
    • 2500 ohm load: 123 dB
    • 1000 ohm load: 118 dB
  • Signal to Noise ratio**: 80 dB

*20 Hz to 20 kHz; THD < 1%. THD of the microphone preamplifier when applied input signal is equivalent to the cartridge output at specified SPL.
**S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self-noise A-weighted.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
