Shure 98A overview

  • 1Description

The Beta 98AD/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Shure is essentially a Shure Beta 98A accessorized with a drum mount and a heavy-duty cable. The package is intended to perfectly mount and position the Beta 98A on any stand and is recommended for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and strings. 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

    Shure 98A reviews

    Beta 98AD/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Drum Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I want for a Tom Mic... I'm using this mic on each of my kits four toms. The mic sound great and gives a nice punch and tone for the drums. The clip works well on the heads and the mic itself is easy to position where I want it and it stays there even with a aggressive drummer. I've got no real complaints as of yet and don't foresee any either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for with Shure Beta 98 I mainly use this mike on the drum toms. For this application, it really shines. It's small enough to get out of the way of the drummer's sticks. It has such a good frequency response that I don't have to do as much EQing. It's SPL level is high enough to keep the toms clean. I really like this mike!
