The WB98H/C is a cardioid, mini-condenser instrumental microphone designed to clearly capture the sounds of today's professional horn players. The pickup pattern of the WB98H/C provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. With a high maximum sound pressure level (SPL), the WB98H/C is ready to handle the demands of brass and woodwind instruments, and is a strong performer for percussion applications.

The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint of the WB98H/C allows for easy microphone positioning and securing. Once the position is determined, the gooseneck angle brace ensures that the WB98H/C will stay in place during even the most active performances.

      Great sound and durable!

      Comments about Shure WB98H/C Clip-On Instrument Mic with TA4F Connector:

      This is a great mic for saxophonists. I purchased it to replace the one that came with my original wireless system I bought in 2006 to tour with Anita Baker. I love it's sound and durability. I move a lot when I perform, and I had to replace it because the plastic housing broke after 8 years of me abusing it all over the country. Even thiough the clip broke, the mic kept on working. We duct taped it and I continued to use it in a few more local shows until my new one was shipped. Every now and then I run into a wireless frequency issue, but I bought the lower end system so I expect that from time to time. These are much better sounding and longer lasting than others I've owned in the past.

        This is a great mic for Horns or Drums. It's a quick install, so if you have a horn player with multiple instruments, they can easily change between them.

          Comments about Shure WB98H/C Clip-On Instrument Mic with TA4F Connector:

          I bought this clip on mic to use with my Tenor and Alto sax. I was originally using a beta 87 on a stand, so at first I was worried about considerable quality loss: not so! I even use it with the cheaper shure pgx wireless system and it sounds great! I am gonna have to buy another one soon to keep them ready on both saxes instead of switching....I should have bought this years ago.

            Comments about Shure WB98H/C Clip-On Instrument Mic with TA4F Connector:

            This a quality product that sounds great. I don't have a Shure wireless system and was hoping the mini XLR(TA4F) connector would fit my Carvin wireless belt pack. It did and I'm delighted[...]Also, the price was one of the best on the web. The only slight problem I'm working with right now is that the mic won't clip onto the bell of my clarinet. The clip isn't wide enough and doesn't open wide enough. However, I'm delighted to have this mic.

                I'm a sax player and this mic works great. The reproduction of clear sound quality is exactly what I need from a mic. The flexibility and mounting configurations make it a true joy to use. I would recommend it to my friends and buy another if needed.

                  Very pleased with this mic. Purchased to replace original SM98 mic for tenor sax on older Shure Wireless system.
                  This one has a much better, sturdy and more manageable integrated clip and Sounds very natural.
                  Only down side for horn players is that it still requires a belt pack, but sounds better than the Samson or AMT Airliner type systems.
