The Shure KSM353/ED is a premium bi-directional ribbon microphone crafted for pristine audio in studio and concert hall applications. With a 146 dB max SPL across a 30–15,000 Hz frequency response makes the KSM353/ED ideal for capturing fast transients in vocals, acoustic guitars and drums.
Assembled from state-of-the art transducers, transformers and metals, the KSM353/ED is the pinnacle of Shure quality for prestigious vocal and acoustic performances. Shure’s proprietary Roswellite technology provides revolutionary ribbon resilience and durability under extreme conditions. The high-tensile strength, toughness and shape memory of the KSM353/ED’s Roswellite ribbon material replaces traditional foil ribbons for superior resilience at extreme SPLs.
With unique technology and application features, alongside superior materials and construction, Shure KSM ribbon mics are the go-to choice for the some of the world’s most prestigious studios and stages.
