The SM86 is a unidirectional condenser microphone from Shure that is designed for vocal applications.  The microphone has a cardioid polar pattern which isolates the source and blocks out background noise.  It offers a tailored frequency response of 50 to 18,000 Hz making it recommended for professional use in live performances.  The SM86 includes a built-in three-point shock mount and a two-stage "pop" filter that reduces breath, wind, and handling noise.  The microphone comes with a stand adapter and storage bag and has a 2 year limited warranty.
