Shure has created a microphone that includes all the benefits of the legendary SM series of microphones like their rugged design to handle the abuse of touring sound, and added a condenser capsule that provides studio quality sound. Features include a tailored frequency response for clear reproduction of vocals, cardioid polar pattern, built-in three point shock mount, 2 stage filter reduces wind and ‘pop’ noise.
The Shure SM86 is a unidirectional (cardioid) condenser vocal microphone for professional use in live performance. An extremely rugged microphone, the SM86 withstands the rigors of touring while delivering studio-quality sound. The tailored frequency response of the SM86 reproduces vocals with clarity. A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. The built-in three-point shock mount minimizes handling noise, and a two-stage pop filter reduces wind and breath "pop" noise. The SM86 is an excellent selection for use with both stage monitors and personal in-ear monitors.
The Shure SM86 is a handheld condenser microphone made with the SM series rugged design but with the clarity and detail of a condenser microphone. Great for live or scratch studio vocals.
