This rugged industry-standard small-diaphragm cardioid condenser offers a two- setting bass roll-off, -10 dB pad and very accurate “studio worthy” frequency response. The SM81 handles a lot of SPL, is easy to place, whether on a specific cymbal, as an overhead mono mic, or as a pair. As such, it also shines on acoustic guitar and other detailed acoustic instruments.
