The Shure KSM27 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone that I've used in the recording studio. I guess you could use this for recording a live show, but I've never done so, so this review will focus on using the KSM27 in the studio. While this microphone is widely seen in studios, Shure has recently discontinued making it, replacing it with the SM27. The mic has a cardioid polar pick up pattern, with a frequency response ranging from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The mic also has a -15 db pad. The mic comes with a shock mount, velvet case, and a carrying case.

OVERALL OPINION

The Shure KSM27 is an overall great sounding condenser microphone. It's the perfect in between microphone, as it has a pro studio sound without having the large price tag. I've used the KSM27 for a variety of applications, including vocals, acoustic guitar, and a set of them as drum overheads one time. The mic has a very vibrant sound, with a lot of overall clarity. The most recent thing that I used the KSM27 was for recording acoustic guitar with an API 512 mic preamplifier, which was a great combination as it yielded a very clean sounding guitar for me. While the KSM27 isn't on par with some of the best condenser microphones out there, it's outstanding for the price. If you're looking for an all purpose large diaphragm condenser microphone for your home studio, the Shure KSM27 should definitely be considered, as to me it's one of the best all around condenser microphones for the price. There are definitely a lot of condenser microphones to choose from in this price range, but Shure is a company that has built an incredible reputation for themselves, as it's very well known that they make quality microphones that sound great and last a lifetime. Now that they no longer make the KSM27, you can probably find it even cheaper used. Definitely a great microphone choice for any studio...
