||Shure SM87A Microphone
The Shure SM87A is a professional-quality, condenser microphone that features
a smooth, tailored frequency response for use in sound reinforcement, broadcasting,
and studio recording installations. It's supercardioid polar pattern provides
increased rejection of unwanted sound sources, making it ideal for miking individual
instruments in a multi-microphone setting or for miking single sources in reverberant
or noisy environments. The SM87A has a built-in three-stage wind and pop filter
that protects against wind and breath noise while its built-in shock mount reduces
stand and handling noise.
SM microphones have come to define the sound of live performance. Sound engineers
have relied on SM products on stage and in concert halls for years. Remarkably
reliable and consistent they are the standard house sound equipment for venues
