Shure PGA48

Made for the human voice

Shure tuned the PGA48 microphone to optimize the sound of your speaking voice, perfect when you're giving a lecture, delivering a sales presentation, or recording a voice over. The PG48A also works well for singers or for karaoke, and its built-in "pop" filter reduces heavy breath sounds that can mar a performance. The PG48 can handle extreme volume levels without distortion, while its cardioid design rejects sounds from the side and rear to lessen susceptibility to feedback. The handy on/off switch adds versatility.
