Musikmesse Frankfurt: Shure expands PG mics

April 3, 2009

European launch for new headphones adds to launch

At the 2009 NAMM show, Shure previewed the new large diaphragm, side-address microphone additions to its PG series microphone line (pictured) and now the range is shown in Europe for the first time, alongside the company’s first foray into the headphone market

The Shure PG27 and PG42 are large diaphragm microphones designed for the reproduction of different sound sources. The PG27 is a multi-purpose microphone for natural reproduction in instrument and vocal recording applications. The PG42 is specifically engineered for vocal applications. High sensitivity, a voice-tailored frequency response and a switchable high pass filter reducing unwanted background noise make it ideal to reproduce the subtle nuances of lead vocal performances.

The PG27 comes with a stand adapter, the PG42 with a shock mount and a rugged carrying case.

The PG27USB and PG42USB are the USB counterparts to the XLR models. They offer the same basic features and plug easily into a computer USB port for the convenience of digital recording.
