Shure 98A overview

  • 1Description

The Beta 98A/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Shure is essentially a Shure Beta 98A accessorized with a shockmount swivel adapter and a lightweight cable. The package is intended to perfectly mount and position the Beta 98A with a flexible gooseneck that makes it an essential, accurate choice for toms, snares, and percussion. Its cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis feedback and noise, and its tailored frequency response reproduces drums with pristine results. The Beta 98A's high SPL response captures transients without noise and distortion. Its miniature profile is ideal for close positioning, without interfering with the performance.

Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control
Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
Precision-engineered design for unobtrusive microphone footprint
