New in Rentals: Shure KSM8


TC Furlong just added Shure’s newest vocal mic, the KSM8 Dualdyne, to its already extensive rental inventory of hardwired mics and wireless capsules.  The KSM8 is the world’s first dual-diaphragm dynamic handheld microphone.  Designed for high quality vocal reproduction, the KSM8 offers excellent clarity and control along with the rugged reliability of a dynamic microphone.

The newest in Shure’s KSM line, the KSM8 boasts a patented cartridge design featuring two ultra-thin diaphragms (one active and one passive) and groundbreaking inverted airflow system.  This translates to an unmatched control of proximity effect leading to a larger sweet spot, as well as a flat and accurate frequency response that minimizes the need for EQ and processing.

Some features include:

  • Exceptional control of proximity effect vastly increases working distance without on-axis coloration.
  • Accurate frequency response due to controlled proximity effect which allows for neutral mid-and-high frequency reproduction.
  • Off-axis attenuation is flat and broad resulting in superior quality of rejection of unwanted sound sources for increased vocal clarity.

The KSM8 joins our roster of over 90 hardwired mic options and over 18 wireless capsule options.  The new KSM8 is interchangeable across all of the Shure wireless platforms in our rental inventory including Axient, UHFR, ULXD, UHF, and ULXP.
