Features
KSM109/SL with windscreen and zippered carrying case.

The Shure KSM109 offers incredible performance, combining an extended frequency response for natural sound reproduction with a smooth high end and a tight, controlled low end. It is all the microphone you need for studio instrument recording. Other features:
  • A tight cardioid polar pattern
  • Transformerless Class-A preamplifier circuitry design
  • Outstanding transparency without crossover distortion
  • An extended frequency response (20Hz to 20KHz)
  • Natural reproduction of sound with a smooth high-end and a tight/controlled low-end
  • Switchable 15dB Pad allows the input of a wider range of SPL sources

Some typical applications for the KSM109 are listed below, but the microphone may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.

  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
  • Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
  • Ensembles -- choral or orchestral
  • Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums

Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement strongly affect the sound obtained from miking a source. You may need to experiment with microphone placement and room treatments to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
 

Specification
  • Cartridge Type : Permanently Biased Condenser
  • Frequency Response : 20­ to 20,000 Hz
  • Directional Polar Pattern : Cardioid
  • Output Impedance : 150 ohms (actual)
  • Attenuation Switch : 0 dB or 15 dB attenuation
  • Phantom Power : 48 Vdc +/- 4 Vdc (IEC­268­15/DIN 45 596), positive pins 2 and 3
  • Current Drain : 5.2 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 : 24 mm (0.950 in.) diameter, 162 mm (6.375 in.) long; 195 grams (6.9 oz.)
  • Sensitivity (typical, at 1000 Hz; 1 Pa = 94 dB SPL) : -­41 dBV/Pa
  • Self­noise (typical, equivalent SPL; A-weighted (IEC 651)) : 19 dB
  • Maximum SPL@ 1000 Hz
  • 5000 ohms load (Attenuator on) : 150 (165 dB)
  • 2500 ohms load (Attenuator on) : 144 (159) dB
  • 1000 ohms load (Attenuator on) : 139 (154 dB)
  • Output Clipping Level*
  • 5000 ohms load : 15 dBV
  • 2500 ohms load : 9 dBV
  • 1000 ohms load : 3 dBV
  • Dynamic Range (Attenuator On)
  • 5000 ohms load : 133 (136) dB
  • 2500 ohms load : 128 (130 dB)
  • 1000 ohms load : 122 (125) dB
  • Signal to Noise Ratio** : 75 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 the difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self-noise A-weighted
