Shure Introduce Two New Microphones

Published: Tue July 27, 2010  News Feed

Shure Introduces New KSM42 and KSM44A Studio Microphones

Defining new standards in audio performance

The new Shure KSM microphones will be available here at Dolphin Music in just a few weeks!

The KSM42...

Is a premium, side-address, cardioid condenser microphone for premier vocal recording. "We built the KSM42 so that it would excel in studio vocal applications..from the capsule and the preamp to the housing and the accessories, we designed the KSM42 to deliver a natural enivronment for sophisticated performance and recording."

With 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 and 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."


  • Highly consistent cardioid polar pattern creating a broad "sweet spot" and natural off-axis response for superior sound quality
  • Dual-diaphragm design with an active front, ultra thin, 2.5 micron, 24-karat gold, low mass, one-inch Mylar diaphragm
  • Integrated three-stage mesh grille, which guards against wind and breath noise.
  • Open cage ShureLock rubber suspension shock mount with low-profile magnetic pop filter, producing a natural space between the performer and his or her microphone
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors


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...we've lowered the self-noise while simultaneously increasing the max sound pressure level (SPL). The result is seven decibels of pure dynamic range."


  • Multiple polar patterns-cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional-for maximum flexibility in a wide variety or recording applications
  • Dual one-inch, externally biased, ultra-thin 2.5 micron, 24-karat gold-layered, low mass diaphragms that offer superior frequency response
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Subsonic filter, which eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 hertz (cycles per second)
  • Three-position switchable low-frequency filter that helps reduce unwanted stand vibration noise or counteract proximity effect
  • Integrated three-stage "pop" protection grille that reduces breath noise

Like the other microphones in Shure's KSM line, the KSM42 and KSM44A are crafted from premium components and are ideal for sound engineers who demand the highest calibre of live sound and premier studio recording, with superb vocal and instrument clarity.
