Shure KSM9HS Capsule

Capsule for Wireless Handhelds

The KSM9 You Probably Didn't Know Existed

The Shure KSM9 HS capsule is a beautifully sounding, multi pattern condenser capsule. It is has been designed to bring studio grade vocal miking to the stage. Although switchable between sub-cardioid and hyper-cardioid pickup patterns, the KSM9 maintains a relatively identical frequency response on the different patterns (50Hz – 20kHz). Allowing the user to select the best pattern for performance without juggling sound. Great Max SPL (152dB) for even the louder voices on stage and virtually response resistant to proximity effect and mic cupping. Using the KSM9 with a higher quality sound system will make it more noticeably different than say a Beta 87A.

Hyper-cardioid: Use the hyper-cardioid setting to avoid feedback and achieve maximum isolation in loud environments. This pickup pattern is highly directional, with the greatest sensitivity occurring at the front of the microphone and maximum off-axis rejection occurring at 110 degrees toward each side.

Sub-cardioid: Use the sub-cardioid setting to capture more room characteristics and extract detail in quiet environments. This pickup pattern is directional, but much wider than the hyper-cardioid setting. The greatest sensitivity occurs at the front of the microphone, while maximum rejection occurs at 180 degrees toward the rear of the microphone.
