Shure WB98H/C Overview

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.
