An excellent choice for instrument miking.
The Shure KSM141 is a dual-pattern microphone offering cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns with the turn of a rotating mechanical switch. Other features include Shure's Class A transformerless preamp circuitry for transparency; extremely fast transient response with minimal distortion; a highly sensitive 2.5-micron gold-layered mylar diaphragm; and a switchable, 3-position low-frequency filter to limit unwanted background noise and proximity effect. The KSM141 microphone can capture sounds between 20Hz and 20kHz. Switchable pad (15 or 25dB) permits miking of extremely high SPL sources such as guitar cabs and snare drums.
Shure includes a break-resistant mic clip, carrying case, and Popper Stopper windscreen with the KSM141 mic.
The KSM141 requires phantom power.

Comments about Shure KSM141/SL Dual-Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone:
After a few months of research I finally bought the ksm141 (pair for stereo). I almost skimped and got a cheaper mic, but realized i would be kicking myself when it came time for recording. After receiving the mics, i could hear a hell of a lot difference in my recordings. The mics gave the music its natural tone with no high "hisses". Of course you should study up on mic placement to take full advantage of this product (most of my problems were cured through mic placement). My latest recording needed little to no eq'ing, compression, and/or effects. The straight signal from the mic was the perfect NATURAL sound. Oh yeah, got really good sounds switching from cardiod to omni directional (love that option).
