Shure Beta 98H/C overview

  • 1Description

The Beta 98H/C is a cardioid, mini-condenser instrumental microphone with in-line preamplifier is designed to clearly capture the sounds of today's professional horn players. The pickup pattern of the Beta 98H/C provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. With a high maximum sound pressure level (SPL), the Beta 98H/C is ready to handle the demands of brass and woodwind instruments, and is a strong performer for percussion applications. The transformerless preamplifier circuitry of the Beta 98H/C improves linearity across the full frequency range. In situations where phantom power is not available, the MX1-BP battery-powered preamplifier will perform exceptionally.

The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint of the Beta 98H/C allows for easy microphone positioning and securing. Once the position is determined, the gooseneck angle brace ensures that the Beta 98H/C will stay in place during even the most active performances.

Tailored frequency response for open, natural sound reproduction
Compact, lightweight construction provides a low degree of visibility
Interchangeable microphone cartridges are available: RPM108 - Cardioid cartridge, RPM110 - Supercardioid cartridge
Gooseneck, ratcheting swivel joint, and gooseneck angle brace allow for optimum placement and fixed positioning

    Shure Beta 98H/C reviews

    BETA-98H/C - Clip-On Condenser Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound minimum hassle Until now I have used various mics on short mic stands as pickups for my acoustic cello. I had tried various contact mics which tend to give an electronic instrument sound and require attachments which are not convenient. A friend recommended the Shure and I used it first time in performance - straight out of the box. Super satisfied with it. Attaches easily in 5 seconds to the tail piece and with the mic super close to the f hole it was the first time I could actually hear the cello from the speaker system - in fact I had to limit the gain. As a result very low pickup of ambient sounds. Plus no tripod to lug. Less lugging is always better.
