What We Think - Shure KSM313 Review

"The Shure KSM313 is formerly known as the Crowley & Tripp Naked Eye Roswellite which we had lots of experience with back before Crowley & Tripp sold the designs and manufacturing to Shure. This was always a favorite of ours for it's extra little 'bite', making it perfect for getting the teeth out of a guitar track. The dual-voicing helps to shape the sound at the source without having to eq a lot after the fact. Need more top-end? Just turn the mic around. You can hear the two different characters of this mic in Front End Audio's Tuesday Testers page under the Hear The Gear tab in the main banner on our homepage. We did a ribbon microphone shootout and posted the clips there to help aid you in deciding on which ribbon mic is best for you.If you have any questions, give us a call."
