Comments about Shure PG42 Condenser Microphone:

Without doubt, Shure is one of the manufacturers are better positioned in the minds of everyone when looking for exceptional quality microphones, well, this is still true.
Because it has taken this line Shure PG - "Performance Gear", which gives you all the technical richness and reliability of the brand, I can say that this microphone meets and exceeds expectations for someone looking for a good microphone, supported by the name of a good brand and a very affordable price.
It is tailored for voice and it sounds great on voice, if you are looking for a mic to meet what you need.
I am quite satisfied with the quality that gives this microphone, which I highly recommend. Also, the one I have came with shock mount specially designed for this mic.
