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. 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.
