Shure KSM42/SG Shure KSM42/SG Large-diaphragm, Side-address Cardioid Condenser Microphone

If you're looking for a killer microphone that will record vocals without changing the way they sound, then it's time to pick up a Shure KSM42/SG. The Shure KSM42/SG is a complete package that includes a Shure KSM42 large-diaphragm side-address cardioid condenser microphone as well as a full set of accessories. The super-quiet and highly transparent Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology onboard the KSM42 brings out the clarity in your vocals without adding color or noticeable distortion. Both an internal and an included external pop filter keep breath noise at bay, and the KSM42's consistent cardioid pattern as well as its proximity-effect-negating diaphragm design give it an enormous sweet spot. Top it off with a full set of mounting hardware, an aluminum carrying case, and a velveteen storage pouch, and there's no denying that the Shure KSM42/SG package is an amazing deal!
