By PSW Staff • September 5, 2017 Shure's Super 55-BLK deluxe vocal microphone Pitch Black Edition. Shure announces the release of a limited quantity of the Super 55-BLK deluxe vocal microphone Pitch Black Edition, in time for the upcoming holiday season. The new Super 55 Pitch Black Edition is a modern take on the Super 55’s look and performance. This limited edition microphone features a matte black die-cast case, black foam, and smooth frequency response for natural vocal reproduction, and comes with an integrated, swivel stand mount base and microphone bag. The Model 55 Unidyne made its official debut more than 75 years ago. For vocal performers, the Super 55 Pitch Black Edition’s black-on-black design is a twist on the classic and adds a sleek style to production. The rigorously-tested supercardioid microphone cartridge rejects unwanted noise and prevents feedback. The shock-mounted cartridge and tough, die-cast case reduces handling noise and protects it from damage. “For vocalists, microphones are vitally important as they can make or break performances. Microphones need to have premium sound quality and finish as well as durability,” says Soren Pedersen, product manager at Shure. “The new Super 55 Pitch Black Edition is a tour-proven, dynamic microphone delivering world-class performance with a modern take on our classic design. We are excited to be able to offer this sleek, new design for the holiday season.” The Super 55 Pitch Black Edition will be available through certified Shure retailers and online.
