Product Description

Shure KSM313

 features a Dual-Voice ribbon assembly that lets users choose from two different sound signatures.
Addressing the front of the KSM313 mic delivers a warm, full sound that is ideal for many instruments while addressing the rear side offers a bright, articulate sound that complements vocals. The KSM313 is a premium bi-directional ribbon microphone for world-class audio and performance. The Dual-Voice design features discrete front-and-rear side sonic signatures for use with amplified instruments or in intimate vocal applications. Hand assembled in the USA with custom components and proprietary Roswellite technology for revolutionary ribbon resilience under extreme conditions.

What Roswellite can do for you
If fear of damaging a ribbon mic's fragile ribbon element has made you hesitant about adding one to your locker, worry no more. Shure's KSM313 uses a stronger element made of Roswellite material, which has better "shape memory" than conventional materials. This means the KSM313 can withstand high SPLs without ill effects - and still give you the smooth ribbon-mic character you're looking for.

Premium construction
In addition to its Roswellite ribbon element, the KSM313 comes packed with premium components. Inside, for example, you'll find a double-shielded transformer, which gives you robust output while minimizing RF and magnetic interference. This is a must for modern recording situations. This hand-assembled mic includes high-quality machined steel, silver, gold, and aluminum materials throughout, and you can expect it to remain a mainstay in your studio for years to come.

You'll love this mic's "split personality"
While the difference between the KSM313's "bright" and "dark" voices isn't exactly of "Jeckyll and Hyde" proportions, you'll find that it does make this mic sound great on several different sources - without losing its essential character. Sing into the bright side, and you're treated to a clean, clear, and smooth sound with plenty of articulation. Turn the mic around to capture amplified instruments, with a full, natural sound.
