Record Vocals and More with Shure Quality and USB Convenience!

Superior vocals go straight from your mouth to your computer when captured with the Shure PG42-USB condenser microphone. An integrated preamp and USB connectivity spells convenient plug-and-play operation for home-studio recordists, bands, podcasters, producers, and more, while the mic's built-in 1/8-inch headphone jack gives everyone the option to monitor on the go. With this large-diaphragm condenser mic on hand, you have an affordable, incredibly straightforward way to capture any performance.

Voiced for You

This large-diaphragm USB condenser mic, with its wide frequency response (20 Hz to 20 kHz), 15 dB pad and cardioid pickup pattern, accurately reproduces the finest nuances of the human voice and then some. While this Shure microphone makes a great vocal mic, it works just as well on instruments such as the acoustic guitar. Park your lead singer in front of the PG42-USB, hand him a guitar, and you're on your way to creating ultra-clean tracks at 48 kHz/16-bit resolution.

USB Connectivity for Quick Digital Recording

A USB microphone, the PG42-USB makes it seriously simple to record directly to a DAW. An integrated preamp with Microphone Gain Control is built right in, eliminating the need for extra gear and cables. Monitor Mix Control lets you blend microphone and playback audio, and zero-latency monitoring allows for high-quality tracking and playback in real time.

Pair Shure's PG42-USB microphone with a laptop or desktop computer and your recording setup is complete. The mic comes with a USB cable, shock mount, and carrying case.

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.
