Cardioid vocal microphone offers an extended high frequency response and rugged construction to withstand the rigors of touring. Features include a built-in 3-point shock mount to minimize handling noise and a 2-stage pop filter to reduce wind 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 a clear, studio-quality sound.

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.

Shure SM86 Cardioid Vocal Microphone Features:

  • Condenser cartridge for studio quality sound.
  • Tailored frequency response for a clear reproduction of vocals.
  • Rugged construction withstands the rigors of touring sound.
  • Cardioid polar pattern minimizes unwanted background noise.
  • Excellent choice for stage monitors and personal monitors.
  • Built-in three-point shock mount minimizes handling noise.
  • Two-stage "pop" filter reduces wind and breath noise.
