The Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 Podcast Studio with One AKG P120 Condenser Mic, Polsen Headphones, and Tabletop Mic Stand Kit from B&H provides podcasters with the elements necessary to set up an easy-to use, one-person podcast studio using a side-address condenser microphone.

The kit includes a MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 tabletop podcast studio, one AKG P120 condenser microphone, a set of Polsen HPC-A30 headphones, an Auray TT-6220 telescoping tabletop mic stand, and an XLR mic cable.

The MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 is designed to have first-time users creating a fully produced, professional-sounding podcast in minutes. It places easy-to-use controls at your fingertips with FX pads, reverb, and special voice FX.

Best for working in quiet environments, the AKG P120 condenser mic delivers a crisp and nuanced vocal sound. The telescoping stand allows you to position the mic at the correct height for optimal speech capture.

The Polsen headphones feature a snug, around-the-ear, closed-back design that prevents the headphones' sound from being picked up by the microphone. With a computer, you're ready to broadcast a great-sounding single-person podcast.

  • AKG P120 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

    The black P120 from AKG is a side-address condenser microphone with a cardioid pattern designed to capture vocals, acoustic guitars, percussion, and amplified instruments in project studios, home recordings and live situations. The low-mass 0.66" gold-sputtered diaphragm delivers a clear sound with accurate details, and it is capable of handling sound-pressure levels up to 150 dB without introducing perceptible distortion.

    A switchable low-cut filter at 300 Hz helps reduce rumble or wind noise, and a switchable 20 dB pad enables distortion-free recording of very loud sound sources associated with proximity miking.

    The all-metal body improves rejection of RF interference so you can use the microphone near transmitter stations and along with wireless microphones.

    The P120 is built to resist high temperatures and humidity. The rugged body and sturdy front grille protect it from tough handling.

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 15' (4.6 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (15') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
