What is the KSM141 best suited to?

The KSM141 can be used on acoustic and wind instruments, low frequencyThis is how many times a sound or radio wave oscillates in one second.Read moreGo to the glossary instruments such as double bass and kick drum and various overhead miking applications.

What characteristics can I expect when using a KSM141?

The KSM141 microphone can withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). It has a high output level, low self noise and reproduces low frequencyThis is how many times a sound or radio wave oscillates in one second.Read moreGo to the glossary sounds exceptionally well. With a switchable polar patternPolar pattern describes how well the microphone hears sound from different directions.Read moreGo to the glossary (omni & cardioid) and three-position switchable pad (0 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB) the KSM141 is extremely versatile and can be used in studio or live settings.
