Professional recording engineers and producers praise the KM 183 for its ability to capture a precise, clean sound from a variety of acoustic instruments - acoustic guitar, wind instruments, strings, even percussion and drums. But although the big studios may love it, the KM 183 was really designed to provide that big studio sound quality to the project and home studio owner, at a very affordable price. The omnidirectional KM 183 miniature microphone is a very versatile recording tool, able to deliver the subtle nuances of certain sounds that can really make a difference to a listener. Use the KM 183 to "close-mic" acoustic instruments like guitars, winds, strings, percussion and more. It also does an excellent job capturing the "feel" of a room, transferring those special acoustic qualities on to a recording. The KM 183 also makes a great spot mic for pianos, choirs, organs, winds, etc. Get the jump on what is already become the new standard for studio microphones.

The KM 183 is powered via +48V phantom power. Its 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response provides flexibility for use in a wide range of recording situations. The KM 183's omnidirectional polar pattern provides a generous pick up area and is suitable for X,Y (with cardioid mic and baffle plate) stereo miking, ambiance miking or spot miking instruments such as piano, wind instruments organ and choir. The KM 183 handles sound pressure levels up to 140 dB allowing close miking of instruments high in transient (peak) level response.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern

The omnidirectional polar pattern offers a generous pick up area, suitable for room ambiance capture as well as spot miking on piano, organ, wind instruments and choir.

KM 100 Based Output Stage

The KM 183 features the same output stage electronics as the KM 100. Transformerless circuitry and quiet balanced output design ensure a clean, high gain output signal without any coloration.

Compact Rugged Construction       

The slim design and rugged construction allow easy microphone placement while remaining road worthy.
