The Shure Model SM17 is a miniature dynamic microphone designed specifically for use with acoustic stringed instruments and other acoustic musical instruments. The SM17 has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and a frequency response well suited for instrument use. The microphone is supplied with an attached
3m (10 ft) cable, shock mount, clip, expansion mount, additional bushings (for the expansion mount), cloth mounting adapter, and two cable clips from the rubber bushing below the nut. Insert the screw head and bushing end of the expansion mount in one of
the string holes of the tailpiece. [Note that a total of three different bushing sizes-4, 4.37 and 6 mm (0.16, 0.17 and 0.24 in.) diameter- are supplied. If the 4 mm bushing installed on the expansion mount is too small, unscrew the knurled nut and replace the bushing with
one of a larger diameter.] Swivel the expansion mount to the approximate desired position and tighten the knurled nut to expand the rubber bushing in the string hole.
Snap the microphone into the shock mount (see Figure 2). Note that the microphone can be swiveled in the shock mount after installation.
The SM17 can also be mounted on a violin, viola or cello using the cloth mounting adapter by pulling the “loop” strip away from the “hook” strip. Fasten the adapter (with the elastic microphone band upward)
around the instrument strings between the bridge and tailpiece by pressing the “loop” and “hook” strips together. Insert the SM17 in the elastic band with the microphone grille toward the bridge (see Figure 3).
To hold the microphone cable in place, remove the paper backing from the supplied cable clips, affix the clips to a suitable flat surface, and insert the cable in the clip slot.
