Condenser Vocal MicrophoneBecause of its high precision and detail, as well as its natural vocal reproduction, the Beta 87 was already the first choice for artists and sound engineers around the world. This classic is now available in a new design under the name Beta 87 A. At the request of many users, Shure has thickened the shaft for a more comfortable grip.

The Shure Beta 87 A is a high-quality, permanently polarized condensation microphone with a super-cardioid characteristic for vocals, characterised by an exceptionally linear transmission range and high sound pressure resistance. It is used in professional sound reinforcement, radio and studio recording, and combines excellent sound quality with the robustness required for touring and outdoor productions.

The Beta 87 A has a bass reduction, which compensates for the proximity effect and prevents disturbance caused by close-up sounds. The Shure-typical presence raises the upper mids, while the supercardioid characteristics provide for maximum isolation from other sound sources such as vocal or instruments, allowing for minimal off-axis sound.

Great live mike

Deni K., 19.03.2015
I used to really be scared of feedback so my main microphone was always a dynamic one.

I finally decided to switch to a microphone that would provide me the quality of great sound and perfect dynamics, and I must say that Beta 87a is definitelly a great microphone, being that I am in a heavier band, I really got surprised how much gain this mike can take, and how tight it's pattern is, there is not much bleed of other instruments into this mike, and compared to the SM58 and the Beta58, this microphone (the beta 87a) to my ear feels like it can take even a tad more gain before feedback, or at least about the same as Beta 58, and it's really a lot clearer than the SM58 and the Beta58. The quality of the sound is uncomparable, there is no contest, this is almost a ''studio sound'' mike in a live performance!! :D

I've had absolutelly no problems in live applications and was definitelly able to turn it up to hear myself really, really well on the wedges. Though if you're going to use a lot of sound processing on this mike, I'd still suggest taking the InEar Monitoring route, as that's still only OM7 area of expertise.

I'm really happy with my microphone, knowing that I have one really high quality sounding mike in my collection, and I can't be happier with Thomanns customer service, these guys rock, will be back, again and again.

Excellent sounding mic

Jason7773, 06.06.2014
We bought one of these initially for a speech application to replace an SM58. No contest the clarity of this thing is superb. We have since bought two more for the singers. we still use SM58s for some vocalists who suit a warmer sound but if it's clarity and detail you need then this mic does a much better job. Also the feedback rejection is quite simply astonishing by comparison.
