Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Confidence-Inspiring Mic and Kit!"
Sound: The mic sounds like me. I am currently pod-casting ministry services as an Army Chaplain in the Philippines. My office is hardly a recording studio, and if you think I'm turning off the AC here, think again! Audacity noise remover does a GREAT job of taking out the AC noise and the mic is crystal clear. Diction is sharp and I am realizing I make too many smacking sounds before speaking. Using the PG-42 is going to make me a better speaker! Feature: The shock-mount is solid and effective The travel case is first-rate and reinforced at all corners, as if the designers actually travel! The low-rolloff switch aids greatly in cutting the amount of AC noise I have to deal with post-recording. I am learning to have a more critical ear, but the built-in pop screen seems quite effective to me. Ease of Use: plug and play. The control switches do exactly what is described, and are effective in accomplishing their purpose! Quality: I mentioned the construction above. I will say that the first impression is that the PG42 is a working professional's device. It doesn't feel flimsy, delicate, or prissy. Value: A definite step up from the entry-level, I feel I got my money's worth and will continue to do so for many years! Manufacturer Support: Have no need to contact Sure The Wow Factor: A beginning podcaster, I spent more on my initial setup than is recommended, but I am confident that the PG42 gives me the best sound I can get for under $500 in a microphone Overall: Unless I get a pro radio gig, I expect the PG42 will be my primary or interview mic until it dies...or I do!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
