Setting the standard

It's no exaggeration to refer to Shure's SM Series microphones as the industry standard. SM microphones have been carrying the torch for great sound for decades, at legendary performances live and in the studio. When you want to know you've purchased a microphone that will stand the test of time — whether in durability or in sound quality — look no further than Shure's SM Series.

Versatility for instrument miking

Shure designed the SM137 condenser microphone for a variety of studio instrument miking applications where controlled, accurate sound is a priority. Its flat response captures all the character of acoustic instruments, while its super-thin diaphragm gives you both smooth highs and tight lows. A 15dB attenuator lets you use this mic in high SPL applications.

    Other Info:

    Why a condenser mic?

    Need to pull the full harmonic complexity from a solo cello? Want to make the most of that magnificent German studio grand piano you spent way too much for? Or maybe you understand that the magic of swing comes from the insistent ping of a deftly controlled ride cymbal, and you're determined to capture it in glorious detail. You'll likely end up with a condenser mic; these simply designed, yet incredibly precise, recording instruments are far more responsive to sonic vibration than their "dynamic" cousins (who, with some exceptions, are more appropriate for PA systems). Whatever your hi-fi recording needs, there's a condenser mic out there with your name on it.
