      For Gear Heads:

      The KSM42 premium side-address, cardioid condenser microphone features a large dual-diaphragm capsule, optimized for world-class vocal recording and performance applications. With a tailored frequency response and extensive internal and external pop filtering, the single-pattern, dual-diaphragm design of the KSM42 exhibits exceptionally smooth proximity control and ultra-wide dynamic range.

      The KSM42 is the premier choice for capturing sophisticated, powerful and intimate vocal performances. KSM42/SG includes ShureLock® shock mount, Popper Stopper™ magnetic pop filter, aluminium carrying case, and velveteen pouch.

      Features:

      • Highly consistent cardioid polar pattern creates a broad "sweet spot" and natural off-axis response
      • Dual-diaphragm design with an active front, ultra thin (2.5 micron) 24-karat gold, low mass, 1-inch Mylar® diaphragm
      • Open cage ShureLock® rubber suspension shock mount with low-profile Popper Stopper™ magnetic pop filter produces a natural space between performer and microphone
      • Prethos™ Advanced Preamplifier Technology exhibits extremely low self-noise with superior dynamic range, transient response and ultra-low distortion for transparent recording
      • Passive back diaphragm delivers exceptional control of low frequency proximity effect
      • Tailored low-frequency roll-off minimizes low frequency room noise
      • Integrated three-stage mesh grille guards against wind and breath noise
      • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
      • Durable zinc die-cast housing and hardened low carbon steel grille
      • Internal shock mount to reduce unwanted handling and stand noise
