Been using this for a few weeks now into a UA pre. There is nothing this mic cannot do. Female vocals -beautiful, male vocals -perfect. Shure made this mic for tracking vocals and it does it this with... read more [+] precision. No eq necessary. No audible noise, no distortion, no proximity effect and it looks sexy.

With a very sweet clean mid-range, controlled presence-lift, and an almost non-existant low frequency proximity effect, the Shure KSM42 mic should be given very serious consideration as a perfect all-round vocal mic in any studio's mic locker. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
