The Shure KSM313 Ribbon Microphone is a premium bidirectional microphone designed for world-class audio recording and performance. The Dual-Voice design features discrete front and rear sonic signatures to accurately capture intimate vocals or intricate instrumentation.

The Shure KSM313 Ribbon Microphone is a dual-voice ribbon microphone that features a bi-directional pattern for premier audio, superior off-axis rejection, and a highly durable ribbon element for increased resilience at extreme SPLs. The KSM313 is best suited to amplified instruments or for intimate vocal applications. Its high-tensile strength, toughness and shape memory of Roswellite™ ribbon material replaces traditional foil ribbons for superior resilience at extreme SPLs and allows the microphone to be more durable. The bi-directionality means that one side of the Shure KSM313 provides a brighter character that shines on your vocals, while the other side offers a rich, full sound that's ideal for your amplified instruments.

What We Think


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. If you have any questions, give us a call.
