Shure SM81 (Mono)

Description

The SM81 is a legendary, high-quality condenser microphone. It delivers clear, unadulterated sound on acoustic instruments. That's why it's very popular with professional sound engineers. The equipment is extensive: three-stage damping, switchable high-pass filter, very linear frequency response and very wide frequency range.

WHO IS THE SM81 THE RIGHT MICROPHONE FOR?
The SM81 is the right choice for professionals with high demands in the acceptance of acoustic instruments. Shure-typically robust, it is used both in the studio and on stage by sound engineers.

HOW DOES THE SM81 SOUND?
The SM81 allows very lifelike reproduction: The extremely linear frequency response and the very wide frequency range ensure that nothing is distorted. The triple switchable low cut filter reduces background noise and reduces the proximity effect. The switchable -10 dB attenuation prevents distortion even with loud instruments.

WHERE DOES THE LEGENDARY STATUS COME FROM?
The SM81 has been available since 1979 and combined studio sound with stage-ready robustness. Since then it has been used in countless gigs and thousands of successful music productions.

Summary:
High-quality pre-polarized condenser microphone | Linear frequency response for true-to-original sound reproduction | Cardioid characteristic for maximum isolation of the signal source and reduced background noise | Low inherent noise and high overload protection | Distortion-free recordings even at high sound pressure | Low high-frequency interference sensitivity | 3-stage switchable high-pass filter: linear, 6 or 18 dB/octave reduction | Switchable 10 dB attenuation

Capacitor

The condenser microphone, invented at Bell Labs in 1916 by E. C. Wente is also called a capacitor microphone or electrostatic microphone—capacitors were historically called condensers. Here, the diaphragm acts as one plate of a capacitor, and the vibrations produce changes in the distance between the plates.

XLR

The XLR connector is a style of electrical connector, primarily found on professional audio, video, and stage lighting equipment. The connectors are circular in design and have between 3 and 7 pins. They are most commonly associated with balanced audio interconnection, including AES3 digital audio, but are also used for lighting control, low-voltage power supplies, and other applications. XLR connectors are available from a number of manufacturers and are covered by an international standard for dimensions, IEC 61076-2-103. They are superficially similar to the older and smaller DIN connector range, but are not physically compatible with them.
