Shure RPW120 overview

  • 1Description

The RPW120 from Shure is a Beta 87A condenser microphone capsule compatible with most interchangeable Shure handheld transmitters (available separately), with the exception of the BLX and GLX-D systems. It delivers a clear, detailed vocal sound for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications.

The uniform supercardioid polar pattern provides maximized gain-before-feedback along with a smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability (140.5 dB).

Featuring an electronic low-frequency roll-off and a shockmount system, the capsule virtually eliminates proximity effect and reduces handling noise. Its circuitry is designed for low susceptibility to RFI and electromagnetic hum.

    Shure RPW120 reviews

    RPW120 Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Capsule for Handheld Transmitter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not the same as the original I have a complete Beta 87A package and I love that. I attempted to upgraded my Beta 58 package to 87A using just this. My friends immediately notice that one of the mic is better than the other. They look mostly identical except the body of the 58 is a bit less black than the 87 body. My friends don't know which one is upgraded but they can tell which one sounds better. The Beta 58 I purchased here at BH last year and my attempt to upgraded just the head unit to beta 87a somewhat fails. I admitted that the 87a is way better than the beta 58. and upgrading just this Cartridge somewhat better but not as good as the original 87 package. I am not sure why.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless Beta 87A Cartridge does great! I recently converted my Shure SM58 wireless mic into a Beta 87A by purchasing this new cartridge.It makes the mic a bit lighter and a bit shorter, but the purpose of switching it out was to reduce feedback, and so far that it has done!!!Glad to have made this purchase.Thanks!!... This was the lowest price I could find on the internet, as well.
