KSM8 Replacement capsule for Shure nickel

KSM8 Dualdyne - the name of the first dynamic microphone capsule with two diaphragms and a neutral and precise sound. Right, two membranes! And these ensure optimal signal pickup, no matter how the artist behaves in front of the microphone. But what is the difference to other microphones?

Das KSM8 sieht bei jeder Live-Anwendung gut aus!

Often the proximity effect plays a role, because the artist cannot always stand in front of the microphone on stage. But even more distant signals have their problems to remain permanently assertive, because the performance often does not allow it here either. Thus, some singers who like to touch the capsule almost with their lips either sound too"musty" or they are too quiet and the voice sounds too thin if they are not optimally centered in front of the microphone.

However, the KSM8 creates a combination of everything: so that you can concentrate on your audience, yourself and the music, the KSM8 with its two membranes makes the way across many distances. This has an effect not only on the singer's comprehensibility, but also on his or her well-being on stage. Dull signals are therefore not additionally transmitted via the monitors to the already noisy stage environment. For multitasking artists who have a guitar or other instruments in front of them and sing along the way, it is also a relief, because every now and then you automatically look down to the strings and you can't keep the distance to the microphone exactly as before. Last but not least, the basket is made of hardened steel and is lined from the inside with water-repellent foam, which means that water, explosive sounds and wind influences hardly stand a chance.
