Product Details

Shure Beta 98A/C Miniature Instrument Microphone

The Beta 98A/C features high sound pressure level (SPL) capability, making it an excellent choice for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, woodwind, brass and strings. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise. Each Beta 98A/C includes a 25-foot lightweight cable, in-line preamplifier, zippered bag, and shock mount swivel clip for use with standard 1-3/8" microphone stands. Add the unequaled sound quality and rugged reliability Shure is known for world-wide, and you've got a winner. Requires phantom power; 48V is recommended, but the unit will operate with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity on voltages as low as 11V.
