SHURE SM93 MICROPHONE Mini lapel, omnidirectional, condenser

SM93 Lavalier Microphone

The SM93 is an economical omnidirectional miniature lavalier condenser microphone designed for use in speech applications. Despite its small size, the microphone element provides full, clear sound comparable to that of much larger microphones. Its frequency response is tailored to body-worn applications, with low-end rolloff and presence rise.

The SM93 is powered by phantom power supplied by broadcast, sound reinforcement or recording equipment, or an external phantom supply. The SM93 operates over an extremely wide voltage range of 11 to 52 Vdc, covering both DIN and IEC phantom power standards.

A wireless version is available as the WL93.

Features

The SM93 is supplied with a sew-on mounting bracket, a mounting block with attached tie bar, and an acoustic windscreen to minimize wind noise in outdoor applications. It is also supplied with a dual mounting block with attached tie bar. 

  • Subminiature lavalier design; ideal size for theater, television broadcasting, video, film, and sound reinforcement
  • Small, inconspicuous mounting hardware
  • Full, clear sound comparable to larger microphones
  • Smooth extended frequency response with presence rise specially tailored for chest-worn microphone operation
  • Controlled low-frequency rolloff reduces low-frequency clothing and room noise
  • Low distortion, wide dynamic range
  • Versatile mounting accessories allow a variety of low-visibility applications
  • Preamplifier assembly can be pocketed, strapped to the body, or clipped to belt or waistband
  • Omnidirectional condenser
  • Frequency response: 80 to 20,000 Hz

SHURE MICROPHONES - Miniature

Intended for use wired with a cable, rather than with a radiomic transmitter, this selection of models includes the SM11 miniature, omni-directional, dynamic type and the Microflex MX100 Series, miniature lapel types which use interchangeable condenser cartridges available in cardioid, supercardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns.

SM11

A miniature, omni-directional, dynamic microphone this is 'designed for use in television broadcasting, sound reinforcement, certain radio and motion picture applications, and similar uses where a small, professional-quality microphone is required'. The frequency response is 'optimized for lavalier use'. Supplied with 'a tie clasp assembly, tie tack assembly, connector belt clip, and zippered carrying bag'.

The cable is 1.2m long, two-conductor, shielded, non-detachable, fitted with an XLR connector with belt-clip.

Included accessories: 'Tie clasp assembly, tie tack assembly, connector belt clip, and zippered carrying bag'.

MX183, MX184, MX185

The MX183, MX184 and MX185 are supplied with omni-directional, super cardioid and cardioid cartridges respectively. They have a 1.2 m cable, terminated with a 4-pin, female mini connector (TA4F), to fit the supplied in-line pre-amplifier.

For versions without a pre-amp, suitable for use with Shure wireless body-pack transmitters, see:'Shure Microphones - Miniature - For Radiomic Bodypack'.

Included accessories: Belt-clip preamp, rotatable tie-clip, dual tie-clip and a snap-fit windscreen.
Optional accessories: RB183B, RB183W, RB184B, RB184W, RB185B. RB185W alternative cartridges.

SM93

A diminutive lapel microphone, unusually, rectangularly shaped (9.4×5.8×3.8mm), the SM93 is equalised for optimum pick-up when worn on the chest. It is particularly suited to applications where the microphone is to be camouflaged by sewing into (black) clothing, using the bracket supplied, such as sound reinforcement for the clergy. A phantom powered pre-amplifier is provided, with in-line XLR style connector, to which it connects with a Tini-QG TA4F miniature plug.
