Gold Coverage Includes:
- Unexpected and unintentional spills, drops and cracks
- Normal wear and tear
- Power surges
- Dust, internal heat and humidity
Other plan features include:
- For products over $200, No Lemon Policy applies. If it fails for the same defect 3 times, it is replaced on the 4th breakdown. (Does not apply to failures due to drops, spills, and cracks)
- For products under $200 experiencing the above failures, a Musician's Friend gift card will be issued for the full price of the product + tax.
- Shipping fees covered if required for repair or replacement
- Plans are transferable in the event merchandise is sold
- Plans are renewable on new gear
*Limitations and exclusions apply. See terms and conditions (Opens in new window) for program details
Term for New Gear begins on date of purchase but does not replace the store return policy or manufacturer coverage.
A large dual-diaphragm side-address condenser mic offering cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional patterns.
A milestone achievement in sound reinforcement, Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology employs transparent internal circuitry architecture that enables you to achieve unprecedented audio quality and performance.
- Prethos Advanced Preamplifer Technology: Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier provides transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion, as well as minimizes harmonic and intermodulation distortions
- 4dB of self-noise and max SPL of 131dB for a total dynamic range of 127dB”an increase of 7dB for cleanly nuanced audio capture
- Multiple polar patterns-cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional”for maximum flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
- Dual 1", externally biased, ultra-thin, 2.5m, 24 Karat gold-layered, low-mass diaphragms provide superior frequency response
- Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
- Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17Hz
- Switchable 15dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
- 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted stand vibration noise or counteract proximity effect
- Integrated three-stage "pop" protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise
- Includes ShureLock Suspension Shock Mount, ShureLock Stand Mount, carrying case, and velveteen pouch
