Cardioid condenser stage vocal mic.

We’ve known and loved the KMS105 supercardioid stage mic for a very long time. Have you checked out the KMS104 cardioid variants though?

Like the KMS105, this KMS104 has a 4 stage mesh pop filter – the difference being a nice, tight cardioid pickup pattern.

A full frequency response from the brilliant and clear highs right down through the full mids and fat bottoms.

It is  optimised for close miking – a fixed low cut filter compensates for ‘proximity effect’ and ensures clear bass, even if the singer’s lips touch the microphone.

The dynamic range of the KMS microphones is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.

KMS104 features:

  • Tight cardioid pattern without off-axis coloration
  • Unaffected by extreme sound pressure levels
  • Rugged construction
  • Feedback resistant, high rejection of rearward sound (180°)
  • Built-in pop screen
  • Very low handling noise

In the box:

  • KMS 104 Microphone (nickel)
  • SG 105 Stand clamp
  • Padded nylon bag
