Prethos Preamplifier Technology

The Prethos advanced amplifier technology offers extremely low noise, an impressive dynamic range and superior transient response due to the innovative circuitry design to deliver only the highest audio quality for professional applications.

Suspension Shock Mount

The KSM42 includes an open cage ShureLock rubber suspension shock mount and a low-profile Popper Stopper magnetic pop filter. This allows you to setup the microphone and shock mount always with the same distance.
