Shure Beta 98 H/C

Condenser Microphone Clip The Shure Beta 98H / C (also known as WB98H / C for use with wireless systems) is a high-quality, permanently polarised condensation microphone with a cardioid polar pattern that is attached either to the bell of wind instruments or to the tensioning ring of drums or percussion instruments. The integrated gooseneck and the pivotable clamp connection make it easy to align the microphone and secure it. An isolating vibration absorber reduces the transmission of flap and other mechanical noises. The included swan neck fixation is designed to keep the microphone in the optimum position when moving more strongly.

The Beta 98H / C operates with a transformerless preamplifier circuitry for better linearity over the entire transmission range, while the cardioid polar pattern provides high feedback-resistant gains and an excellent suppression of unwanted subsonic noises. The high maximum sound pressure level makes it possible to meet the extreme requirements of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments.

The Beta 98H / C comes with a latching windscreen, a case and a swan neck fixation. The preamplifier can be operated with any 11 - 52 volt phantom power.

  • Noise (equivalent sound pressure): 31 dB (A)
  • Power supply: 11 to 52 V
  • Weight of the microphone: 65 g

Great sound but not very robust

29.11.2015
The sound is always clear and full. The mic itself is great.
The cable feels pretty thin and flimsy and kinks easily.
The xlr clip wore pretty quickly, meaning xlr cables with weak or worn clips would pop/crackle during performance. Easily solved with good cables.
The horn clip fell apart after a year. Was relative easy to repair.
This mic was gigged hard for about a year, so some wear was expected, but I would have expected a bit better.
Still gets 4 stars because the mic itself sounds great and I generally really liked it but if you're looking for something absolutely bulletproof I would say look at some other options.

Good Value for money

Tom Duffy, 24.04.2017
I use this Shure Beta 98 for my Pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine). It does exactly what I require it to. It has good range clarity and sensitivity. It is good value for money.

The swan neck is stable and the hardware solid. the initial cable and mic is very light and does not add to the weight of the instrument too much which allows for fluid playing without too much effort. This is solid kit and suits my playing
