Product Details

Shure Beta 98AD/C Miniature Cardioid Drum Microphone

The Beta 98AD/C features high sound pressure level (SPL) capability, making it an excellent choice for drums and percussion instruments. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise. Each Beta 98AD/C includes a 15-foot lightweight cable, in-line preamplifier, zippered bag, and A98D flexible gooseneck mount. The A98D facilitates quick and easy mounting on virtually any drum, and allows you to place the microphone precisely where you want it. Add the unequaled sound quality and rugged reliability Shure is known for world-wide, and you've got a superb microphone. Requires phantom power; 48V is recommended, but the unit will operate with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity on voltages as low as 11V.
