    Applications

    Some typical applications for the KSM141 are listed below. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. The KSM141 may be used for a variety of applications other than those listed.

    • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
    • Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
    • Low frequency instruments -- such as double bass, electric bass, kick drum
    • Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
    • Ensembles -- choral or orchestral
    • Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums

    Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement strongly affect the sound obtained from miking a source. You may need to experiment with microphone placement and room treatments to achieve the best overall sound for each application.
