Shure...
a comitment to excellence
Shure microphones are singularly uniform. When
you buy more than one, you automatically have a
matched set -in sound, coloration, output level,
frequency response, and pickup pattern. If you
later buy another unit of the same model number,
even in a different city (or in any of one hundred
and fifty other countries in which Shure microphones are sold), it will be the performance twin of
the original unit.
Let's consider the cable. Frequently, it can be a
trouble spot so Shure gives it special attention. We
anticipate the worst and test accordingly. We test
samples from every production lot because we
know the microphone will be dragged by the cable,
and swung about by the cable. We also know that
the cable will be stretched, stepped upon, tripped
over, yanked, over-flexed, and be generally misused and abused. Shure -developed flex and stretch
testing equipment and procedures are state- of -theart and have been adopted as industry standards
by leading cable manufacturers.
Thoroughbred quality throughout
Shure microphones are sometimes copied
intensive development, design, and engineering. It
must then be manufactured using carefully selected
and monitored materials, with precise tolerances
and exact relationships among interdependent parts.
It is built using sophisticated equipment under the
guidance of experienced specialists, so that there
is identical conformance to specifications from
one unit to the next. When finally assembled, it
must pass a battery of demanding tests to insure its
ability to maintain this high level of performance
under severe conditions.
Every Shure microphone goes through all these
steps. Such attention to detail is rare, because it is
costly. Yet, this is the only way to assure the quality
of a finished product upon which you will be depending for many years to come. We will not take cost cutting short cuts. We never have. We never will.

appearance, but they are never duplicated in performance and reliability.
Shure has always published both frequency
response curves and complete polar patterns
for its microphones (we were tre firstto do so)
together with detailed specifications that are
scrupulously accurate, conservative, and accompanied by all
necessary reference figures.
This is not always the case
with other manufacturers or assemblers who often

raging Cumberland River
flooded Opryland U.S.A. Many Shure
microphones, as well as a large number of Shure amplifiers, mixers, and
consoles. lay submerged in mucky
water for days. When the waters
receded, the sound technicians at
Opryland washed the microphones
and circuitry equipment with very
hot, soapy water, rinsed them with
hot water, blew out the water with
compressed air, and submerged everything in a bath of
_PS -1, a petroleum base de- wetting agent Then, the equipment was kept
under five 1000 -watt studio lights day and night for three days at a temperature
of 40.5 °C. (105 °F.). At the end of this ordeal, they worked!
Shure microphones have survived fires, car crashes, and earthquakes. Though scuffed
up or burned externally, they still worked.
On- the -spot news teams daily cover fast -breaking stories under the
worst possible conditions for their microphones -such as dense smoke
and intense heat, rain, sleet, bilowing debris, thundering shock waves
of rocket launches, and unpredictable abuses by rioting crowds.
From long experience, they know that their Shure microphones
will work -and they do.
Professional vocalists depend upon their microphones
much as musicians depend upon their instruments, but
many don't hesitate to throw their Shure microphones
across the stage and down on the floor violently -as
part of their live performances. They never give it a second thought. They know that Shure microphones shrug
off abuse that would make
others inoperative.
Ali 'a.
50 years of experience
with microphones has
taught us one thing: they
are not always used under
ideal conditions -far from
it -so we develop, design,
build, and test them for
the worst conditions we
can imagine.
We know they'll be called upon to function at humidity
levels near 100 %.
We know they'll be flung into equipment boxes after
performances.
We know they'll be left in the direct rays of the midday
sun for hours, awaiting important addresses by world renowned dignitaries.
Speaking of dignitaries, every president since Herbert
Hoover has used Shure microphones in situations as critical as
war and peace announcements, as widely heard as inaugurations, and as important as news conferences. And yet, reliability and
dependability are only part of the story.

Versatility in sound characteristics is another important Shure plus

::_n take for granted-because we
For instance, if you are in public safety com-
munications-a fireman, policeman, ambulance
driver -you don't need, or want, high fidelity across
the audible range. What you do need is highly
intelligible sound in the speech range, coupled
with exceptional reliability under the most adverse
conditions. Shure's landmark pioneering with
CONTROLLED MAGNETIC® microphone elements for use in gun turrets of battleships and
inside tanks during World War II formed the basis
of ongoing research and development in the highly
specialized area of speech intelligibility. That is
one kind of "Shure Sound."
If you are a performer, your special needs are
entirely different. As a vocalist, you may want the
crisp sound that comes from the carefully placed
presence peak of the Shure Unidyne or Unisphere
dynamic series or the SM85 Condenser Microphone- another "Shure Sound."
As an instrumentalist, you may want the
unaccentuated smoothness of the Shure
SM59 Dynamic Microphone or SM81
Condenser Microphone.
Shure gives you a choice of sounds.
Shure also gives you the widest choice
of other options, including polar
patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional,
bi- directional); configurations (handheld, stand -mounted, gooseneck, lava lier, desk -top, boom -mounted); and
a host of other features; such as
built -in windscreens, shock mounts,
on -off switches, response modifica-
tion switches, cables, and even
case colors.
The first Shure catalog -dated
1932 -was 2 pages. This one is 72
pages. There are over 150 microphones described in this catalog. No
one person or installation needs them
all. But because of this wide selection
-the broadest in the world -you will
find the models that are right for you.
Wherever you are using a microphone
on stage; in recording; in an auditorium,
concert hall, or meeting room; in a moving vehicle; on the ground, in the air, or
on the sea; Shure offers you the broadest selection in the world. And to simplify selection, we offer suggestions
for the most appropriate applications
in the section where each microphone
is individually described as well as
easy -to -use charts on pages 6 and 7.

Shure took microphones out of the category of
delicate instruments and made them practical, rugged tools for everything from a hard rock concert
to an open -air symphonic concert.
If you are not a trained professional, Shure goes
to great lengths to provide singular ease of use
combined with rugged reliability.
The cardioid pickup pattern -first made practical by Shure in the late thirties -is very "forgiving"
in the hands of an amateur. Shure found how to
make this pattern symmetrical about the axis and
uniform in response at all frequencies and in all
planes, so the positioning of the microphone relative to the user is not critical. Its possible to move
from side to side without causing audio chaos
such as extreme changes in volume or distracting changes in coloration. Feedback problems

In the hands of an experienced user, the same
microphone has such uniform and predictable
characteristics that it can be worked like a fine
musical instrument -close to the mouth for
accented proximity effect, farther away for smooth
diminuendos
or it can be "aimed" at the
subject of an impromptu, on- the-run news interview with assurance of clear, intelligible sound.
Shure microphones are built to take hard knocks
and prolonged vibrations. Pack them in the trunk
of a car with no special protection and drive dusty
back roads in searing summer heat, or travel the
length of the Alcan Highway in winter with assurance that they will perform when their time comes.
In fact, you can drop them six feet onto a hardwood floor. (Shure does just that as a standard
test .. more about that and other tests on the
inside back cover.)

Microphone specifications ...and what they mean
The specifications provided for each Shure microphone in
this catalog are not "laboratory standards" or theoretical figures
developed in optimum acoustic environments...they are consistently accurate measurements of the performance you can expect
from actual production models. By reviewing and comparing
specifications, you will be able to select the proper Shure microphone that best meets your performance requirements.
Below is a sample listing of Shure microphone specifications
along with the frequency response and polar patterns -taken from
the SM59. Because specifications are worded in technical terms()

The frequency response curve shown for each Shure microphone provides an accurate
picture of the microphone's range and response. The curve represents the output voltage,
expressed in dB (decibels) versus frequency in hertz. Note that the frequency scale is truly
logarithmic, the voltage scale is uniform, and the scales are in the proportion recommended
by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA). Where important to proper usage of the
microphone, Shure response curves show normal response, response at closer distances,
and selectable response effect.

TYPICAL POLAR PATTERNS. 160'
In a dynamic microphone, a coil of wire, fastened to a diaphragm moves in a
magnetic field in response to sound waves arriving at the diaphragm. This motion induces
minute voltages in the coil. These voltages constitute the electrical output of the microphone.
Shure dynamic microphones are capable of response to the full range of audio frequencies
and are designed for every use from studio recording to CB radio. These microphones are not
only rugged, but also reliable, under all conditions of heat and humidity, indoors or out.
Ribbon: Similar to the dynamic, the ribbon microphone has a thin strip of metal foil that
functions as both a diaphragm and one -turn coil. Electrical signals are induced in the ribbon
as it moves through a magnetic field in response to sound waves.
Shure ribbon microphones are excellent for both voice and music, for indoor broadcast,
recording and sound reinforcement. They provide superior sound fidelity and are quite
rugged, except for their susceptibility to damage from fast -moving air currents. This limits
them to indoor use.
Condenser: The diaphragm in a condenser microphone serves as one plate of a variable
capacitor. Diaphragm motion due to sound waves varies the spacing between the capacitor
plates, changing the capacitance and, through additional circuitry, generating minute voltage
changes. This mode of operation requires an integral impedance- converting preamplifier and
external power source.
Shure condenser microphones have earned the reputation of being among the most
rugged and reliable condenser microphones in the industry. Their exceptional performance
and features make them ideal for voice or music in applications where the highest quality
sound is required.
CONTROLLED MAGNETIC`: CONTROLLED MAGNETIC® microphones contain a
diaphragm that moves an iron armature which conducts a magnetic field through a stationary
coil to generate an electrical signal. Their frequency response is generally "tailored;' excluding
both very low and very high frequencies, to suit the requirements of voice communications.
systems.
Shure CONTROLLED MAGNETIC® microphones are ideal for radio communications and
paging systems where reliable performance and modest price are prime considerations.
They are extremely rugged, provide high output, and can be used under all conditions of h
and humidity, indoors and out.
Ceramic: In ceramic microphones, diaphragm movement is coupled to a ceramic element
having piezoelectric properties -the ability to generate a voltage as a result of applied force.
The stress on the ceramic element results in the generation of minute voltage variations
between surfaces of the element. Shure ceramic microphones are good general -purpose
types, with limited high- frequency response.
Carbon: Oldest of all microphones, the carbon microphone has a cylindrical cavity containing tiny carbon granules suspended between a conductive diaphragm and a conductive
backplate. Sound waves striking the diaphragm compress the granules, varying their resistance to a current from a battery or external power source. The changing resistance
modulates the current, resulting in an audio output voltage.
Shure carbon microphones have a tailored frequency response, making them ideal for
use in communications systems. They are quite rugged, with high output, and can be used
in virtually any environment.

Polar patterns are a visual representation of a microphone's pickup pattern: unidirectional
(cardioid); omnidirectional; bidirectional -see Page 5 for an explanation of the importance of
directionality. Because directional characteristics may vary with frequency, Shure shows the
pickup pattern at several frequencies -often as many as six frequencies.
Also, most Shure unidirectional and bidirectional microphones have pickup patterns that
are uniform about their axes. For instance, imagine a perfectly round balloon -now, poke your
finger into one side of it and push in hard...the resultant configuration closely represents the
symmetrical pickup pattern of a cardioid microphone.
Ideally, this pattern should be broad at the front, uniform at all frequencies -with
uniform sound quality at any point within the pattern, off -axis as well as on -axis. Otherwis
movements of the performer about the axis tend to distort the sound. Shure microphones
come very close to reaching the ideal...their patterns are uniform with frequency and
symmetrical about the axis.

their meanings may be misunderstood by the nonprofessional.
For this reason, we have provided a brief explanation of each of
these terms in nontechnical language, to clarify their meaning and
thereby better enable you to select the microphone most in line
with your application requirements.
(Note: If additional specifications and technical description of a
partcular Shure microphone are required, write Shure Brothers,
Atte ition: Customer Services, requesting the technical data sheet
of th at model. For a complete list of the Shure microphone and
circi itry product data sheets and their corresponding "ordering
nurroer" please refer to page 71.)
Frequency Response:
This is the relative output of the microphone at all frequencies in the audio
spectrum, specified in a range, such as 50 to 15,000 Hz (hertz). Because of
the variety of microphone applications, the frequency response and range
are usually "shaped" or "tailored" to some particular use. For nstance,
a musical instrument microphone is ideally "flat" across its full range,
whereas a vocal microphone may have a "presence peak" in its voice frequency area, so that the vocalist stands out from the instruments.
Similarly, microphones for musical instruments are "wide range" to
capture the full output, including rich overtones and harmonics of the
instruments. The frequency response of a communications microphone
is carefully tailored to the voice- frequency spectrum to eliminate
unwanted high- and low-frequency background noise.
Polar Pattern:
The relative sensitivity of a microphone to sounds arriving from different
directions is collectively referred to as its polar or pickup pattern. A nondirectional or omnidirectional microphone displays little variation in
output voltage as a sound source moves around it. The unidirectional
type of microphone is least sensitive to sounds originating at its rear, has
reduced sensitivity to sounds from its sides, and is most sensitive to
sounds from the front. The most common form of this microphone is the
cardioid (heart- shaped) pattern, which has a null at its rear and is half as
sensitive to sounds arriving from the sides as to sounds from the front. The
supercardioid microphone is somewhat more directional, being about
40% as sensitive to sounds from the sides and rear as it is to sounds from
the front. Bidirectional (figure- eight) microphones are equally sensitive to
sounds from the front and rear, and least sensitive to sound from the sides.
A special case of directionality is the noise -canceling microphone; in
addition to being insensitive to sounds from the sides, it discriminates
against distant sounds in favor of near sound sources.

'Impedance Rating:
Selecting the proper microphone impedance versus the input impedance
of a mixer, amplifier, or recorder is done to: (1) maximize the microphone
output signal; (2) preserve the full frequency response; and (3) minimize
pickup of unwanted signals. In general, for optimum performance, the
actual equipment input impedance should be five to 10 times that of
the microphone.
Microphone impedance is specified as a rating or rated number followed
by the actual impedance in ohms. Common ratings are: 150 ohms (actual
impedance may be from 75 to 300 ohms), 600 ohms (actual impedance
from 300 to 1,200 ohms), 2,400 ohms (actual impedance from 1,200 to
4,800 ohms), and high impedance (actual impedance greater than
10,000 ohms).
High- impedance microphones have a higher signal voltage than
low- impedance microphones, but are more susceptible to hum and buzz
pickup and high- frequency loss in their cables. For this reason, high impedance microphones are generally limited to cable lengths under
20 feet. For longer cable runs, low- impedance microphones will avoid
these problems.
Output Level:
The power level is specified with a matched load, for instance, an actual
20( -ohm microphone matched to an actual 200-ohm amplifier input impedar ce. A power level for this microphone might be: -60 dB re 1 mW /10
microbars. This means that the maximum power delivered is -60 dB with 0
dB aquae to milliwatt for a 10- microbar sound pressure (94 dB SPL). Note
tha the power output for a microphone with either low- or high- impedance
would be about the same.

-HIM Pickup /mOe:
Hum (60 Hz or its harmonics) from fluorescent lights, amplifiers, power
cat les, and other electromagnetic sources can be picked up by a micro phane voice coil, transformer, or by an ungrounded or unshielded case. A
hunbucking coil greatly reduces pickup of magnetic hum, and careful
atte ntion to grounding and shielding in the design reduces hum pickup
thrc ugh the case.
The output level (sensitivity) of a microphone is an expression of the
voltage or power output for a given sound pressure. The open circuit
voltage is an "unloaded" figure, that is, there is no voltage drop due to the
measuring instrument. The output is specified in both volts and decibels
(dB) for convenience. A typical open circuit voltage for a low- impedance
microphone could read: -80 dB re 1V /microbar, or -80 dBV. This means
that for a sound pressure of microbar (74 dB SPL -the pressure produced
by a normal speaking voice two or three feet away), the unloaded output
voltage would be -80 dB with 0 dB equal to volt. A less sensitive
microphone would have a larger negative dB number (e.g., -82 dB),
and a more sensitive microphone would have a smaller negative number
(e.g., 78 dB).
In general, the open circuit voltage of high- impedance microphones is
C_--about 10 times (20 dB) greater than that of low- impedance microphones,
and the impedance is about 100 times greater. The significantly lower
impedance of low- impedance microphones enables the use of long
cables without signal loss or change in frequency response.

5 HURE
Magnetic hum pickup is specified as sound pressure equivalent
(expressed in dB SPL) from a 1- millioersted (mOe) hum field. For instance,
a h im pickup of 17 dB equivalent SPL means that the microphone's hum
otibut will be the same as from an acoustic source of 17 dB SPL: a soft
wh sper about 10 feet away. A 1- millioersted field roughly corresponds to
the hum field found in a typical studio environment.
-C able:
Cables supplied with Shure low- impedance microphones are generally a
twc -conductor shielded, balanced line cable. The equipment end of these
cables are either equipped with a three -pin professional audio connector
to mate with Cannon XL series, Switchcraft A3 (Q.G.) series, or equivalent
connectors or are bare leads, thus enabling the user to select the connector required to properly mate with the equipment.
Cables supplied with Shure high- impedance microphones are generally
single conductor shielded. The equipment ends of these cables are either
equipped with a standard phone plug or have no connector.

The STARMAKE "I SERIES
The STARMAKER Series is made up of two very lightweight,
extremely rugged microphones featuring Shure's exclusive
SUEDECOAT" non -reflecting, textured ebony or tan finish.
The SM77 has slim styling, and is especially effective
on instrument pickup where brilliant and defined sound is
demanded. The SM78 has the added superior wind and pop
protection of a spherical screen and grille, making it a "first
choice" microphone for rock, pop, R & B, country, gospel,
for
re

ne
and jazz vocalists.
Both microphones have a fixed low-frequency rolloff plus a
slight mid- frequency presence rise in their frequency response.
This results in highly intelligible vocals as well as penetrating
reproduction of rhythm and keyboard instruments.
In addition, the microphone's uniform cardioid pattern rejects
background noise for maximum amplifier gain before feedback,
and prevents coloration when performers are off -axis.
STARMAKER microphones are 28% lighter, on average, than
similar stage microphones with absolutely no sacrifice in per-
ance, ruggedness or reliability. This reduction in weight
uces performer fatigue in hand -held applications, and
small profile of the SM77 and SM78 won't obscure the
former's face.
he SUEDECOAT finish has a great new look, is pleasant to
easy to clean and is durable enough to stand up to the
ghest stage performance. In addition, the grilles of both
rophones are treated with a Shure exclusive coating which
er rusts or tarnishes.

SM58
The world- standard professional stage microphone, with the distinctive Shure upper mid -range presence peak for an intelligible,
lively sound. A tough, handsome microphone that weighs less
than 11 oz....the SM58 is often imitated in appearance, but never
duplicated in performance, ruggedness, or reliability. It is still the
unsurpassed first choice among rock, pop, R & B, country,
gospel, and jazz vocalists.
The SM58 is preferred for its punch in live vocal applications
...especially where close miking is important. In addition to
the slight presence rise in mid -frequencies, it has a fixed low frequency rolloff to minimize the "boominess" usually accented
by close pickup. A built-in spherical windscreen takes the pop
out of close -up use, and minimizes breath and wind noise distortion. The uniform cardioid pickup pattern greatly reduces off -axis
coloration and rejects background noise to permit higher
amplifier gain before feedback.
The SM58 is world- renowned for its ability to withstand the kind
of abuse that would destroy many other microphones, and is
rugged enough to withstand a six -foot drop onto a hardwood
floor with no adverse effects.
The distinctive shape perfectly fits the hand and the superior
balance and weight distribution make the SM58 unusually comfortable in hand -held applications. The non -glare gray finish provides for exceptional on- camera appearance. Supplied cable
has three -socket connector at microphone end only.

SM56 and SM57
The SM56 and SM57 are frequently seen, and heard, on television entertainment programs, on the concert stage, at lectures,
panel discussions, news conferences, and political conventions.
The SM56 is a permanently stand -mounted model with an effective vibration isolator shock mount in the attached swivel. The
SM57 can be hand -held or stand -mounted.
The outstanding performance and ruggedness of the SM56
and SM57 are identical. The presence boost of these micro-
phones results in clean, beautifully defined drum, string, and
amplified instrument reproduction. Their wide frequency
response with a fixed bass rolloff and slight midrange presence
boost also make them exceptional for intelligible voice pickup.
The well -controlled cardioid polar pattern minimizes background noise in all planes and permits higher amplifier gain
before feedback.
Both microphones are finished in non -glare dark gray enamel.
The optional A2WS windscreen is particularly effective in controlling breath or wind noise on the SM57. Supplied cables have
three- socket connector at microphone end only.

SM59
Performance ...appearance...quiet operation -the hallmarks of a
great microphone. The SM59 is widely used for distinguished TV
studio productions...especially musical shows, where sound
quality is a major consideration. Its wide, ultra -flat response is
enhanced by a controlled low- frequency rolloff, providing a
clean, natural sound for voice or instruments. In addition, the
performer can control the amount of bass increase by moving
toward or away from the microphone. The tightly controlled car dioid pickup pattern is virtually textbook -perfect, minimizing
feedback and unwanted background noise. For vocal groups,
on stage or in the studio, around podiums or pulpits, the SM59
is a superlative performer. It's superb for miking horns, drums,
and vocalists.
The revolutionary design of the SM59 makes this microphone
virtually immune to extraneous noise. An extraordinarily efficient
Shure -patented mechano-pneumatic shock mount shields the
cartridge from rumble and other mechanically transmitted noise,
whether on a stand or hand -held. An integral windscreen provides excellent pop protection, and a built -in humbucking coil
minimizes hum due to nearby electromagnetic interference,
even strong RF fields found near TV studios. These performance
features make the SM59 an exceptional choice for permanent
installations such as legislative chambers and court houses
where minimum handling noise is essential. The slim profile and
elegant champagne finish give the SM59 a distinctive sleek
appearance. Although it weighs less than 8 ounces, this microphone is remarkably rugged. Supplied cable has three -socket
connector at microphone end and three -pin connector at
equipment end.

SM53 and SM54
Two versatile studio -quality microphones combine a smooth,
wide -range, flat frequency response without strident peaks or
false coloration -plus excellent noise rejection. They are highly
recommended for use in recording, broadcasting, and high
quality sound reinforcement.
Both microphones feature an additional acoustic port for
improved low- frequency directional control which effectively
reduces proximity effect (the increase in bass response when a
microphone is used close -up). They also feature a broad front
working angle that provides constant tone quality despite user
movement. This insures uniform sound quality even when the
performer -to- microphone position and distance varies throughout a performance.
The SM53 and SM54 can be hand -held, stand -mounted, or
used in an overhead boom. The special internal shock mounting
reduces susceptibility to mechanical noise, and an internal
nbucking coil prevents interference from strong hum fields,
to for distant pickup applications. Their cardioid polar
rE ponse is uniform over a broad frequency range so off -axis
rE ections, reverberation, and background noises can be con tn led. Further, low- frequency background noise can be sup p ssed by means of a switch -selectable bass rolloff. Both
rr ;rophones provide extraordinary ruggedness and are finished
in curable champagne enamel. Supplied cables have matching
tf- ?e- socket connectors at microphone end only.

SM7
The SM7, designed in conjunction with professional users, is
among the finest studio professional dynamic microphones in
use today. Its "smooth and silky" sound has made it extremely
popular for voice -over recording in radio and television work. It is
also an excellent microphone for use with either instruments or
voice in multi -track recording situations.
It features a wide- range, very smooth frequency response with
graphic response- tailoring switches to permit the choice of four
different microphone response curves: (1) flat response from 40
to 16,000 Hz; (2) midrange boost (presence peak) for enhanced
speech or vocal intelligibility ( +3 dB at 3,000 Hz); (3) low frequency rolloff for natural close -up miking ( -6 dB at 100 Hz);
(4) combination response with both midrange boost and bass
rolloff. The slide switches provide a visual indication of the
response selected (as shown at right). The microphone is

SM81
A matchless standard in high -quality professional condenser
microphones, the SM81 is a superb studio instrument that also
meets the most demanding needs of location recording and
sound reinforcement. Use it for instrument pickup on drums,
acoustic guitars...even cathedral pipe organs, or as an overhead
microphone for orchestras and choirs. And, the SM81 is the only
high performance, professional quality condenser microphone
at a price affordable for home semi -pro recording studios.
Years of design research and operational testing have resulted
in a microphone of optimum performance and dependability.
Until the introduction of the SM81, condenser microphones
commonly failed under field extremes of temperature, humidity
or physical punishment. The SM81 not only survives these conditions, but maintains its standards of excellence despite
the environment.
The extremely wide- range, flat frequency response of the
SM81 means exceptionally accurate operation in recording,
broadcast and sound reinforcement. And low- frequency
response can be selected to match the application: choose
either flat for ideal miking conditions, 6 dB /octave rolloff at 100
Hz to compensate for close -miking proximity effect, or 18 dB/
octave cutoff at 80 Hz for reduction of low- frequency disturbances such as wind, air -moving equipment or stage traffic
noise. The SM81 handles up to a whopping 135 dB maximum
SPL without clipping, and has a built-in selectable 10 dB
attenuator to allow operation at up to 145 dB SPL.
The SM81 also features a unique backplate structure designed
to maximize signal -to -noise ratio and insure long -term charge
stability. This high signal -to -noise ratio and a controlled directional pickup pattern offer outstanding "reach" (the ability to pick
up distant sound while reducing unwanted noise) and discrimination (the rejection of unwanted sound or noise).
The SM81 exhibits unusually low total harmonic distortion
below its clipping point -significantly below that of other professional condenser microphones. It's quiet, too; handling and
stand -borne noise and internal electrical noise are mininal.
And special shielding keeps RF susceptibility extremely low for
elimination of hum and buzz.
Incredibly rugged and durable, the SM81 is capable of withstanding extreme physical abuse, while maintaining the high
16
SF-11JF2F=
®
quality performance expected from a studio condenser microphone. The transducer and electronics housing are of heavy -wall
steel construction and all internal components are rigidly supported for maximum strength. Rugged enough for road tours, the
SM81 is designed to withstand 6 -foot drops onto a hardwood
floor without significant performance degradation or damage to
the case. It's reliable over a temperature range of -20° to +160°F
at relative humidity from 0 to 95 %.
The SM81 can be simplex (phantom) powered from the Shure
PS1 and PS1 E2 power supplies, or any standard voltage (12 to 48
Vdc) available from most recording consoles. (For more information and specifications on the PS1 and PS1 E2 see the accessory
section of this catalog.)
The SM81 has it all: performance ...quality...reliability.
In electronic, acoustic and mechanical design, it's truly the
state -of-the -art. Supplied cable has three -socket connector at
microphone end and three -pin connector at equipment end.
New! R104A
Omnidirectional
Cartridge
The R104A Optional Accessory Omnidirectional Cartridge
expands the versatility and applicability of the Shure SM81. It is
designed for quick and easy interchange with the unidirectional
cartridge supplied with the SM81.
The omnidirectional pickup pattern of the R104A Cartridge
is uniformly sensitive to sounds from all directions. With the
omnidirectional cartridge installed, the SM81 is an exceptional
microphone for studio and recording.
The R104A offers the ruggedness and reliability that the SM81
is noted for, and it is finished with the same durable metallic vinyl
paint. It is supplied with its own 10 dB attenuator. Both the R104A
and the attenuator can be stored in the SM81 carrying case.

CONDENSER
MICROPHONE
SM85
The SM85 is a lightweight, rugged condenser microphone
designed for hand -held live vocal applications. It is capable of
withstanding the physical abuse inherent in on- the -road use, yet
maintains the highest quality performance expected of a studio
condenser microphone. It is ideal for the most demanding live
sound reinforcement applications as well as broadcasting and
studio recording requirements.
The frequency response of the SM85 is tailored to enhance
the performance of the artist throughout the sound spectrum. A
controlled low- frequency rolloff minimizes the handling noise
and "boominess" sometimes associated with close -up handheld microphone use. Its response in the mid -range is tailored
in the Shure tradition to add "crispness" and presence through
carefully placed accentuation in the critical vocal frequencies,
giving the artist's voice a clear, sharply defined sound that sets
it apart from instrumental back -up. In the upper register, the
SM85's clean, clear, scintillating high frequencies delineate
subtle overtones and enhance high- frequency timbre.

SM63
The SM63 is a small, elegant, rugged microphone with very high
output -up to 6 dB higher than comparable omnidirectional
microphones. Its low profile (so it won't obscure the performer's
face) makes it the perfect choice for on- camera applications. Its
design and light weight make it easy to hold and reduce performer fatigue, even when it's continuously hand -held throughout
long studio sessions.
The SM63 is particularly well- suited to hand -held vocal and
electronic news gathering applications. The smooth, extended
frequency response provides a clear, crisp sound and a low frequency rolloff gives natural sounding pickup with the absence
of any "boominess." The Shure -designed and patented
mechano -pneumatic shock mount isolation system cuts handling noise to an unobtrusive level and an effective humbucking
coil rejects the strong magnetic fields found in broadcast situations and near -stage lighting.
The integral wind and pop filter is extremely effective for normal wind and breajh pop noise; however, for adverse wind and
pop conditions, the SM63 is furnished with an accessory dual density, two -layer windscreen. The SM63 also features the Shure
developed VERAFLEX® grille. This grille is nearly indestructible
as it is impervious to rust, moisture and dents.
The SM63 is an innovative blending of small size, handsome
appearance and broadcast -quality performance. It is beautifully
finished in durable champagne enamel and is supplied with
matching swivel adapter. Supplied cable has matching three socket connector at microphone end and three -pin connector at
equipment end.

565 Series
The UNISPHERE"' Model 565 Series Microphones are world renowned for solving difficult acoustic problems in sound reinforcement, broadcast and recording. They are excellent reproducers of voice or music, and have extremely effective built -in
spherical windscreens to permit close -up use without wind noise
and breath popping. Their uniform cardioid pattern minimizes
off -axis coloration, suppresses undesirable background noise,
and permits higher gain before feedback. These features make
them excellent in performance situations, particularly for handheld use.
The microphones have high output for excellent signal -tonoise ratio after amplification. Their wide frequency response of
50 to 15,000 Hz is shaped with a low- frequency rolloff to prevent
the "boominess" often associated with close -talking into a
unidirectional microphone, and they have a presence boost at
I
high frequencies for a bright, crisp sound which enhances the
intel gibility of speech and vocals.
TI e 565 Series Microphones are dual impedance, with ratings
of 1E 0 ohms or "High," for connection to the wide variety of
amp lifiers in the field. The microphone connector is the popular

588 Series
All the most desirable features in a unidirectional dynamic
microphone at an economy price, that's the UNISPHERE® B
Model 588 Series. A built -in windscreen mimimizes breath pop-
ping when used close -up and subdues wind noise when used
outdoors. An on -off switch permits controlling the microphone at
the performer's position. These microphones use the same
three -pin professional audio connector found on professional
studio microphones and consoles. A built -in locking plate permanently locks the microphone in the on position when the
sound engineer wants to control the microphone at the console.
The 588 Series Microphones have a uniform cardioid polar
pattern that reduces feedback even in acoustically difficult locations. Their frequency response is 80 to 13,000 Hz, suitable for
sound reinforcement or recording of voice and most instruments.
The response is shaped with a fixed bass rolloff to provide
natural sounding close -up voice reproduction, and with a high-
frequency presence boost to heighten intelligibility of speech
and vocals. In addition, an effective shock mount isolates
the cartridge from unwanted handling or stand -transmitted
mechanical noise.
The microphones in the 588 Series are either high impedance
or low impedance. All microphones in the series can be handheld or stand -mounted. Supplied cable has three -socket connector at microphone end.

545 Series and 546
Small and strikingly good -looking, the acoustic design of the
UNIDYNE® III Series Microphones approaches the theoretical
ideal for voice and music pickup. Their natural and remarkably
faithful response makes them a favorite choice of singers and
entertainers and excellent microphones for drum and instrument
reproduction. The response extends from 50 to 15,000 Hz and
is shaped for natural, clear and crisp pickup from voice and
instruments.
Their unusually effective and uniform cardioid polar pattern
is particularly well- suited for applications where feedback or
background noise are problems. In addition, a cartridge shock
mount minimizes handling and stand -borne noise.
The high output of the 545 Series and Model 546 provides for
excellent signal -to -noise ratio.
These microphones are lightweight for handling comfort, yet
rugged enough to keep on working under punishing conditions.
All models (except 545L) are dual impedance to match the
variety of amplifiers found in the field. The microphone connector
is the popular three -pin professional audio connector and the
supplied cable has three -socket connector at microphone end
(except the 545L, which offers an attached cable).

522
The Model 450 is a rugged, omnidirectional microphone
designed especially for radio communications, paging, and dispatching systems. It has a CONTROLLED MAGNETIC® cartridge for high speech intelligibility, exceptional reliability, high
output level, and smooth response. The microphone features
switchable high and low impedance and telescoping height
adjustment over a 63.5 mm (21/2 in.) range, plus a case of rugged
gray ARMO-DUR which won't crack, peel, rust, or dent. A
"Million- Cycle" push -to -talk switch activates both microphone
and relay circuits, and a locking feature locks the microphone
on. The cable is connected for balanced low- impedance
operation designed for paging systems where long cable
runs are encountered.
This is a dynamic microphone with a unidirectional pickup
pattern that suppresses unwanted background noise, such as
generated by other dispatchers working nearby, ventilating
equipment, or office machines in the same area. It also
suppresses feedback in public address applications.
A fingertip control bar (locking and non -locking action)
actuates the microphone circuit and normally open external
relay circuit, and is equipped with a long -life "Million-Cycle"
switch to satisfy the rigorous requirements of communications
and paging.
The 522 features switchable high and low impedance, an
adjustable stand that raises or lowers the microphone ro the most
comfortable talking position (63.5 mm, 21/2 in. range), and a
sturdy, high impact ARMO -DURO® case. The cable is connected for balanced low- impedance operation designed for
paging systems where long cable runs are encountered.

replace ceramic or dynamic, high- or low- impedance microphones supplied as original equipment...or to turn a mobile FM
unit into an indoor fixed station. The dynamic element provides
clean, crisp, undistorted transmission and the frequency
response is tailored with a rising response characteristic ideal for
SSB and FM communications. It's the perfect match for almost
any transceiver made, from 500 ohms and up.
An adjustable volume control cuts through ORM and provides
optimum transmitter modulation and maximum intelligibility. The
"Million- Cycle" press -to -talk switch provides trouble -free
momentary or locking operation and an electronic or relay
switching circuit enables hookup of speech processors, an
antenna relay, on-the -air lights, etc. The case is of virtually indestructible ARMO -DUR® and is fully shielded for low hum pickup
and minimum susceptibility to RF interference.
The switch and six -wire coiled cable are arranged for
immediate hookup to practically every transceiver input. A wiring
guide is supplied with each unit to further simplify installation.

SM82
A hand -held, self- contained, unidirectional condenser microphone with a built -in line level amplifier, peak limiter and battery.
The exceptional performance and unique features of the SM82
make it an outstanding choice for on- the -spot broadcasting,
sound reinforcement, and recording applications where a line
level microphone with a built -in limiter is needed. It is also ideal
for applications involving long cable runs (up to one mile without
equalization) such as sporting events, parades, political rallies,
and other live remotes,
Its balanced line level output permits the SM82 to drive telephone lines or other line level inputs directly- without a separate
remote amplifier, and using unshielded cable. A built -in limiter
begins operating at 100 dB SPL, preventing overload of the
microphone line amplifier or remote broadcast amplifier. The
SM82 operates from an internal 9.8V battery, or it can be
simplex -powered over a 15V to 50V range -it automatically
switches to battery power should the simplex power source fail.
A unique connector -switch turns the microphone on when a
cable
is
connected.
The SM82 features very low mechanical handling noise, rugged construction and reliable operation over a wide range of
temperatures and humidity. The integral wind and pop filter is
extremely effective for normal wind and breath pop noise and an
accessory windscreen is supplied for protection against adverse
wind and pop conditions. Optional accessories include a
monitor adapter (A82MA) for microphone output monitoring and
"talkback" during off -the -air periods, and a battery adapter
(A82BA) that permits the use of other batteries. For more information on these accessories see page 57.

MICROPHONES
SM18 Series
The SM18's are high -quality dynamic microphones with
color- coordinated foam enclosures and matching cables The
palm -size microphones "disappear" by blending into their surroundings in conference rooms, auditoriums, and churches.
The physical and acoustic characteristics of these microphones
make them ideal for use on altars or on conference tables
where ordinary stand -mounted microphones might be visually
distracting. The White SM18W is virtually unnoticeable on a white
marble or linen- covered altar, while the Brown SM18B blends into
a brown wood-finished surface.
Small as they are, the sound quality and intelligibility of the
SM18 Series Microphones are outstanding. Their carefully tailored voice -range frequency response minimizes low frequency
boominess and rolls off high frequencies above 10 kHz, thus
minimizing pickup of spurious noise from undesirable sources
such as rustling papers.
The SM18 Series Microphones offer a unique solution to the
problem of sound pickup near a hard surface such as a desk,
ta

etop, lectern or altar. The microphone is mounted in the foam
losure at an angle that places the cartridge about Vs in. from
hard surface. This minimizes the influence of sound reflecs from the hard surface, thereby eliminating thé uneven frency and "hollow" sound which reduces intelligibility. In addias the reflected and direct sound waves are combined, the
rophone output is increased by about 6 dB.

The Shure Model SM17 is the first miniature microphone
designed specifically for use on acoustic musical instruments. It
is a quality dynamic microphone, superior to a direct contact
pickup in its strong, natural, acoustically live sound, with excellent separation and remarkable freedom from overload and
distortion -even at high sound levels. Yet, it is scarcely longer
than a paperclip!
The SM17 may be attached to most instruments with no
modifications. It is supplied with an expansion mount for violins,
violas, or cellos; and a cushioned spring clip for acoustic guitars,
string basses, or any other instrument with a convenient surface
(as the bell of a brass instrument).
The SM17 case is made of aluminum for light weight and
strength. The attached 3m (10 f t), small- diameter cable is
extremely flexible, with a three -pin professional audio connector at
the equipment end. Two cable clips for securing the cable to flat
surfaces are supplied.
An excellent solution to the problem of hands -free, close -talking,

Shure makes a complete line of gooseneck mountable microphones to meet virtually every requirement in gooseneck applications. These microphones offer exceptional performance and
features for many different purposes such as sound reinforcement and recording; in TV or radio newsrooms; on podiums; for
control room talkback; or for communications or paging. They
are ideal wherever fixed permanent or semi -permanent installations are required.
Shure gooseneck microphones are available in unidirectional,
omnidirectional, or noise -canceling types. Frequency responses,
range from the very wide 545L (50 Hz to 15 kHz) to the very
narrow, noise -canceling 562 (100 Hz to 6 kHz). The 515SBG
and 515SB -G18 feature PTT momentary switches for those
applications that require push -to -talk operation. The very small,
inconspicuous, omnidirectional 572G is supplied with a small
diameter gooseneck and is highly suited for voice applications.

516EQ
ES615
The 516EQ E- QUALIDYNE® unidirectional, dynamic microphone
is designed to improve the quality of home tape recordings by
providing the recordist with the ability to make selective changes
in frequency response without the need for elaborate audio
equipment. Four built -in notch filter switches in the handle let the
user tailor the sound for virtually any desired effect.
Flick one switch (or two) to eliminate feedback...flick another
switch to remove the muddy sound of a bass drum or acoustic
guitar...use another switch to add sizzle to the voices. In all, there
are 16 response variations possible.
The 516EQ is low- impedance with a three -pin professional
audio connector. It is furnished with two cables to provide instant
plug -in attachment to the majority of cassette and reel -to -reel
tape recorders. The 4.6m (15 ft) cable has a 1/4 in. phone plug on
the recorder end and the 0.9m (3 ft) adapter cable has an 1/8 in.
mini -plug on the recorder end.
Shure's ES615 is an omnidirectional, dynamic microphone,
specifically designed for use in conjunction with equalization
analyzers for room or system equalization. The slender, lightweight probe configuration offers minimum sound field disturbance, and the microphone's broad, flat frequency response
with controlled low- frequency rolloff is tailored specifically
for use in pink noise -excited octave and one -third octave
analyzer systems.
The ES615's low- impedance operation permits long -cable
instrumentation use without excessive high- frequency loss or
hum pickup. An optional line matching transformer (A95 Series)
converts the ES615 for use with high- impedance inputs.
The ES615 is rugged and dependable. It will provide years of
normal use without deviating from original standards, and it
doesn't require special handling usually associated with
instrumentation microphones. The microphone has a satin chrome steel case and stainless steel grille. Supplied with 6m

MOBILE VOICE PICKUP SYSTEM
AND
TELEPHONE ACOUSTIC COUPLER
HF52
50AC
The HF52 mobile voice pickup system is designed for hands -free
radio operation in police, taxi, or any other radio- dispatched
vehicle. It consists of three units:
An omnidirectional microphone which mounts on the sun visor
or steering column provides for uniform sound pickup from
almost any location in the vehicle. In addition, it has a special
communications frequency response for maximum intelligibility.
A floor- or firewall- mounted amplifier which operates from any
standard 12 -volt auto battery (negative ground) and is adjustable
to compensate for microphone -to- operator distance and transmitter sensitivity. Suitable for use with most mobile transmitter
inputs (not CB) designed for dynamic, CONTROLLED
MAGNETIC ®, carbon or transistorized microphones.
A weatherproof footswitch to key the mobile transmitter.
The system is virtually unaffected by RF fields and power
supply fluctuations and noise, and it's operable over a wide
temperature and humidity range.
The HF52 is supplied with two microphone mounting
options and installation hardware.
The 50AC is designed to acoustically couple tape- recorded
information to a telephone handset transmitter. This is most
useful in recorded interview broadcast applications when a tape
recorder cannot be "hard- wired" to a telephone line. A simple
strap assembly easily attaches and holds the 50AC in place on
almost any telephone handset. Its rubber case seals the 50AC to
the telephone, blocking out external sounds, thereby enhancing
the intelligibility of the transmitted information. Depressing an
integral lever breaks the seal and permits the operator to comment or add supplemental material without interrupting the tape
or removing the 50AC from the handset.
The 50AC can also be used in real -time broadcast applications with a mixer that has a line -level output. In addition, the
50AC can be used as a tape recorder microphone; its frequency
response approximates that of a telephone.
The 50AC consists of a dynamic transducer cartridge in a
small, lightweight molded rubber and plastic case. The attached
1.5m (5 ft) cable terminates in a1/2 in. "mini- plug" connector for
attachment to the earphone or external speaker jack of most
portable cassette recorders.

AND
SOUND LEVEL MICROPHONE
61CP
98A108A
The 61CP is a piezoelectric transducer designed for vibration
measurement and analysis in industrial and research applications. It is a general purpose, high sensitivity unit, used for
locating and measuring periodic vibration. However, since the
unit also responds to aperiodic vibrations, it can be used for such
diverse applications as stress and strain analysis, shock mount
selection, protection system pickup, animal activity monitoring,
leak and wear -point detection, surface smoothness measurement, and rotational system balancing.
Throughout the linear range of the 61CP, the output voltage is
proportional to vibration- caused acceleration and flat up to
approximately 1,000 Hz. The upper frequency response limit is
about 3,400 Hz.
The 61CP can be mounted with screws or with a supplied
mounting bracket. In addition, it can be hand -held using the
supplied ball -tip, point -tip and extension rod. The 2.1m (7 f t)
miniature, single- conductor, shielded cable has an Amphenol
type 27 -19 connector which mates with the Amphenol type
27 -21 connector on the 61CP.
The 98A108A, a lightweight, omnidirectional, ceramic
microphone, is designed for scientific and industrial sound
measurement. It is useful for applications involving sound level
determinations, production testing, ambient noise levels, and
reverberation measurements.
The 98A108A features uniform frequency response, high
sensitivity, low distortion, and freedom from electrostatic and
electromagnetic interference. The unit is operable at very high
sound pressure levels, and is resistant to extremes in temperature and humidity. The 98A108A is a high- impedance device,
and has a three -pin professional audio connector. Minimum load
impedance is 3.5 megohms; 100 megohms is recommended.

A82MA
Monitor Adapter
A cable and connector assembly designed to provide the user of
a Shure Model SM82 Line Level Unidirectional Microphone with a
capability for monitoring the microphone output. A 500 to
2000 -ohm headset is required (such as the Telex EMY -2 or
EMW-2 "Earset "). The A82MA can also be used on a "talkback"
circuit, permitting the microphone user to communicate with the
audio console or mixer operator during off-the -air periods.
The A82MA consists of a 2.1m (7 ft), TRIPLE-FLEX® heavy
duty, two- conductor shielded cable with three -socket professional audio connectors at microphone end and three -pin professional audio connector at equipment end. Mounted in the side
of the microphone connector is a "micro- plug" jack (.097 in.
diameter) for use with the headset. Internal circuitry provides
shorting protection, dc blocking, and protection against
acoustic shock from line transients. A matching insulated
micro-plug for installation on the headset is supplied.
The A82MA is designed to withstand voltages normally
encountered on telephone lines. If used with a dialed -up telephone line, it is recommended that a voice coupler (Western
Electric Type 30B or equivalent) be used to protect the user from
any possible shock hazards, and to comply with telephone
company tariff regulations.
The A82MA can also be connected to the Shure Model 50AC
Acoustic Coupler,
eliminating
p
g the need to "hard- wire" to the
telephone line. The 50AC is held in place over the transmitter of a
telephone handset by a rubber strap. The A82MA weighs 164
grams (5.7 oz).

SE30
The SE30 is a professional mixer with a 600 -ohm line output (for
remote or studio applications) and a high -quality "hands- free"
gain riding compressor in a single, portable unit. Makes output
control in remote pickups, talk shows, recording, program line
compression and professional sound reinforcement smoother,
surer and more trouble -free than it's ever been before.
The SE30 provides a 40 dB compression range -adjustable to
varying input requirements, with a compression ratio of approximately 10 to 1. Once set, the SE30 rides gain automatically,
increasing or decreasing the system gain to maintain a constant
output level. Because compression is properly achieved in the
mixer itself, the signal -to -noise ratio is optimized for better telephone line transmission on remotes. In studio applications, it
allows maximum modulation level without overloading other
components. The SE30's variable response rate control allows
the proper time constant to be selected for the type of program
material involved; fast for voice applications such as sporting
events; medium to slow for musical program sources.
A unique Gated Memory circuit solves the "pumping" problem

the desired signal (such as voice or music) is not present, and
putting a "hold " on the compression level at that point. For example, this eliminates the crowd noise build -up when the announcer

program material returns, the "hold" is released and the
compressor goes back into action.

M68
A compact, lightweight and economical microphone mixer/
remote amplifier specifically designed for professional use in
The M68 is a practical, efficient and economical way to increase
the usefulness and flexibility of audio -visual, paging, sound reinforcement and tape recording systems requiring multiple microphone inputs. The M68 can also be used to provide additional
microphone inputs to another mixer such as the M67, to another
M68, or to a power console such as Shure's Model 700.
Each of four microphone -level inputs has its own switch for
selection of low- impedance (balanced or unbalanced) or high impedance (unbalanced) microphones, and a high -level auxiliary input is suitable for inputs from tape recorders, tuners, or
other sources. The M68 has two outputs: one is a microphone level output (low- or high- impedance, switch -selectable) for
connection to a sound system amplifier or tape recorder input.
The other is a high-impedance, high -level output to feed any
power amplifier or tape recorder requiring a 0.5 to 2V input
signal. The M68 can also be powered by an external power
source such as the A67B.
M68 108 to 132 volts ac, 50/60 Hz, three -pin inputs.
M68FC 108 to 132 volts ac, 50/60 Hz, three -socket inputs.
M68FCE 105 to 130 or 210 to 260 volts ac, three -socket inputs.
remote broadcasting, studio recording, sound reinforcement,
and as an "add -on" mixer for expanding existing facilities and
providing additional microphone inputs for audio and video tape
recorders. The M67 features a wide, flat frequency response,
with extremely low distortion up to +18 dBm output, and low
noise and RF susceptibility.
Four low- impedance, balanced microphone inputs (one convertible to line level) are provided, with the line -level switchable
for 600 -ohm termination or bridging. Each input has a switchable
to -cut filter. The illuminated VU meter is calibrated for +4 and +10
dBm output, with a convenient range switch. Equipped with a
headphone jack for monitoring and a mix bus jack for "stacking"
mixers. Battery operation (with optional accessory A67B)
permits automatic switchover if the ac power fails. A battery
check switch monitors battery condition.

SR109
Only 51/4 in. high, the SR109 mixer-preamplifier is loaded with
features that broadcasters and professional sound operators
have asked for. Designed for rack- or case -mounting, it is the
perfect complement to a high -quality sound reinforcement system. Up to eight low- impedance microphones can be mixed,
with individual high- and low- frequency equalization. Channels
7 and 8 are switchable to microphone- or line -level sources. In
addition, each input has a switchable 15 dB attenuator, and a
feedback -type volume control that raises the clipping level and
reduces circuit noise as the gain is reduced. An adjustable peak
limiter with an LED indicator prevents output overload, and a
peak- responding LED indicates output clipping level when the
limiter is off.
The SR109 has two program outputs: a 600 -ohm balanced,
+18 dBm line level, and a low- impedance, balanced, microphone-level output. The program output also has a rotary
master level control, and a ballistically correct, illuminated VU
meter calibrated for 0, +4, or +8 dBm. Dual link jacks provide for
connection of external equipment such as equalizers, compressors, or additional mixers, and a switch permits phase reversal of
both line- and microphone -level program outputs. A transformer coupled 8 -ohm headphone output with separate level control is
provided for monitoring, and a built -in 1 kHz tone oscillator
facilitates checkout synchronization of all meters in the system.
The regulated power supply operates over an extremely wide
range of voltages, permitting the SR109 to be used in many areas
where voltage extremes and fluctuations are encountered, and
with extremely long extension cables without performance
degradation. A switched ac receptacle (SR109 only) provides for
connection of accessory equipment drawing up to 500 watts.
SR109 90 to 132 volts ac, 50/60 Hz.

AUDIO EQUALIZER
SR107
are each adjustable over a ±15 dB boost or cut range, on IEC
octave centers over the frequency range of 31 Hz to 16 kHz. The
equalized output level is adjustable over a ±15 dB range, and
overall gain of up to 20 dB may be introduced to compensate
for low -level signals. A peak- responding LED indicator shows
approaching overload by lighting approximately 3 dB before the
onset of output clipping. A bypass switch provides for disconnecting the equalizer circuitry to allow equalized and unequal ized comparisons. Two parallel -wired bridging inputs are
supplied: three -socket balanced and balanced phone jack.
Outputs are: three -pin balanced line -level (switchable to low impedance microphone level), balanced or unbalanced line level phone jack, and aux output jack.
Only 13/4 in. of rack space is needed for this versatile, active
audio -frequency equalizer which is designed to adjust tonal
balance on an octave -by-octave basis in sound system applications. The SR107 is used in live performances for feedback
control or for improving the sound quality, and in prerecorded
performances for playback equalization by correcting for
equipment response and /or room acoustics. Equipment
response correction includes eliminating such problems as
transducer incompatibility, low- frequency overload (rumble),
tape hiss, and disc surface noise. The SR107 is a balanced
line -level input and output device, designed for installation
between the audio console or mixer and the power amplifier
in a sound system. Output is +18 dBm with a 600 -ohm load.

M63
The M63 provides versatile and economical control of audio
response and a line-level amplifier in a compact, lightweight
package. It may be used to equalize sound systems and to
correct room acoustics in auditoriums, clubs, gymnasiums,
and meeting rooms; to produce special sound effects; to
reduce stand or stage noise; and to improve tape recording
and duplication in production and transfer studios. It is an ideal
low -cost equalizer and line amplifier for use in conjunction with
an M68 Mixer.
The M63 features continuously variable high- and low -pass 6
dB per octave filters, plus separate bass and treble controls, for
flexible control of response characteristics. The "hinge" effect of
the bass and treble controls and the "slope" effect of the high and
low filters can be combined for a frequency response curve
"tailored" to the individual room.
Two high -level, high-impedance inputs accept signals from
mixers, tape recorders, or tuners. A master volume control
adjusts both inputs simultaneously. The M63 line -level amplifier
provides up to +18 dBm output. Four outputs are provided:
microphone level (high- or balanced low- impedance);
600 -ohm balanced line level; high impedance, aux level; and
headphone jack for monitoring. The M63 also contains a VU
meter (calibrated for 600 -ohm line termination) with a
two -range sensitivity switch.

FEEDBACK CONTROLLER
M610
When the M610 Feedback Controller is included in a sound
system, its special set of filters and rolloff switches smooths out
the peaks in the system's frequency response, so that system
gain can be increased to significantly higher levels before reaching the feedback threshold. The operator can "tune" the sound
system to the room acoustics, quickly and easily. Use for a single
microphone, or to tune the output of a mixer- connect it in a
single microphone line (low- or high- impedance), or to the aux
output of a mixer such as the M68. The M610 offers the basic
advantages of room /system equalization- without the high
costs of elaborate, complex, highly specialized equalization
equipment.
The M610 has eight resonant dip filters, each controlled by a
linear- motion potentiometer. Each filter, unlike highly selective
"notch" or single- frequency filters, acts on a band of frequencies
around its center frequency, so that attenuation is smooth and
complete. These filters function across the audio spectrum, with
center frequencies at 63,125, 250, 500, 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, and
8,000 Hz. Each is infinitely variable from 0 attenuation (flat) to a
maximum cut of 12 dB. "High end" (above 8 kHz) and "low end"
(below 63 Hz) rolloff switches are provided to control response
outside the range of the filters.
A front -panel volume control allows the operator to conveniently increase the overall gain of the system to a level even
higher than the original level. The M610 can also be used to
improve sound quality and increase intelligibility by filtering out
problem frequencies that cause oscillating ( "ringing "), boominess, and other disruptive resonances in acoustically difficult
rooms, and to equalize program material and monitor speakers
in studio and broadcast applications.

Shure...
quality is our first consideration
During the second world war, microphone testing for durability and reliability was forced upon
manufacturers building for government contracts.
When this was no longer required, most companies stopped Shure did not. In fact, we made
the tests progressively tougher and the standards
even higher.
Shure has a staff of specialists whose sole function is to uncover any weaknesses BEFORE Shure
microphones are put into quantity production. They
work with such test facilities, equipment,
and instrumentation as Environmental Test Chambers, Helmholz Magnetic Coils which generate
controlled magnetic fields that induce electrical
hums, and Vibration Exciters.
Microphones are fried at temperatures up to
85 °C. (185 °F.) -often for entire days; frozen down
to -46 °C.
50 °F.) for half-hour periods during
the heat test; shaken from side -to -side, back -andforth, and up- and -down, simultaneously and violently; subjected to steamy humidities -up to 100%
at room temperature, and 93% at 38 °C. (100 °F.);
subjected to ultraviolet rays, salt sprays, alcohol,
sand, and water.
Then, for good measure, we drop them repeatedly 2 meters (6 ft.) onto hardwood floors! That is
our standard test procedure. All during production, units chosen at random are put through these
same tests. Failure of any one microphone brings
production tc a halt until the original design requirements are again met. Knowing all this puts special
(-
burdens on Shure design engineers. That they
consistently succeed in designing better products
is the result of Shure's incomparable experience
in applying ingenious and unique solutions to knotty
microphone design problems.
Shure makes more brand name microphones
than any other company in the world. We have
been told by our customers that this is a reflection
of user-satisfaction with the quality and reliability
of our products coupled with an outstanding reputation for credibility. We make no unverifiable
claims. We do not publish exaggerated or misleading data.
Shure has been in the business of supplying
microphones longer than any other manufacturer. We've learned a lot about what it takes to design and make a microphone that works well. Our
development and engineering groups draw upon
a unique "bank" of microphone design background
and experience. They regularly publish significant
technical papers on microphone design and use
in prestigious audio journals. Many of these papers
are available at no charge by writing to Shure. Our
engineers have been granted patents covering
many significant aspects of microphone design.
They virtually "wrote the book" on the subject of
modern microphones.
Our reputation rides on every Shure microphone
There is probably no country in the world where
Shure microphones are not used and respected.
Shure's worldwide reputation for quality is built on
the twin foundations of engineered performance
and of manufactured reliability. Our emphasis is
on maintaining these high standards.
Shure's reputation for quality is the result of the
dedication of everyone at Shure. They are encouraged to question established methods so that we
can continue to provide the very best value for
you. We've been told that ours is the largest staff of
quality assurance specialists of any microphone
manufacturer. But, in a larger sense, quality assurance is everybody's job at Shure. All of our people
care about what happens to the products they
make before and after these products leave the
factory. And, we stand behind what we make with
the industry's largest international distribution and
service network.
To the purchasers of the millions of microphones
bearing the name Shure during the past years
and to those now buying their first Shure microphone, we can assure you that we continue to
follow the philosophy and policies that keep Shure
microphones working dependably year after year
after year.
Quality is our first consideration.
