Shure Releases New Condenser Mics
The KSM42 and KSM44A mark the pinnacle of Shure advancements in microphone development, delivering world-class sound reproduction from advanced design and technology.
The KSM42 is a premium, side-address, cardioid condenser microphone for precise vocal recording.
"We built the KSM42 so that it would excel in studio vocal applications," says Chad Wiggins, Shure's Category Manager for Wired Products.
"From the capsule and the preamp to the housing and the accessories, we designed the KSM42 to deliver a natural environment for sophisticated performance and recording."
The mic has a tailored frequency response and extensive internal and external pop filtering.
The single-pattern, dual-diaphragm design of the KSM42 exhibits an ultra-wide dynamic range, exceptionally smooth proximity control for studio applications.
"When engineers put the KSM42 in front of a vocalist, they're going to get a consistent tonal quality whether that vocalist is two inches from the microphone or two feet away," Wiggins adds.
The KSM44A is a large-diaphragm, side-address condenser microphone that can be used in a variety of live and studio applications.
Innovative Shure technology has redefined the dynamic range of the mic to capture every nuance with a groundbreaking minimum of self-noise.
"The KSM44A is truly a feat in engineering," Wiggins explains.
"We've lowered the self-noise while simultaneously increasing the max sound pressure level (SPL). The result is seven decibels of pure dynamic range."
Like the other microphones in Shure's KSM line, the KSM42 and KSM44A are crafted from premium components.
These mics are ideal for sound engineers who demand the highest calibre of live sound and premier studio recording, with superb vocal and instrument clarity.
The mics will be available in the UK within a two weeks - the team at Gear4music.com are excited to try them out.Posted on 21 Jul 2010 14:11 to category : Instruments News
