Shure KSM313

The KSM313 is a premium bidirectional ribbon microphone for world-class audio recording and performance. The “Dual-Voice” design features discrete front and rear sonic signatures to accurately capture intimate vocals or intricate instrumentation.

Ribbon microphones are renowned for being extremely delicate. Two things set the KSM313 apart:

  1. The KSM313/NE’s high-tensile strength, toughness and shape memory of Roswellite™ ribbon material replaces traditional foil ribbons for superior resilience at extreme SPLs and allows the microphone to be more durable.
  2. The bi-directionality means that one side of the KSM313/NE provides a brighter character that shines on your vocals, while the other side offers a rich, full sound that’s ideal for your amplified instruments.
