Multi-purpose compact microphone

Mat10000, 22.05.2011
This small miniature micro is really perfect for a multitude of applications.
The diversity of the clamps (which is unfortunately expensive enough) allows its use with different sources.
I bought the version with the clamp for microphone stand that allows to use this microphone as a standard microphone but I still added to my list the other two brass clamps ert battery.
I have already used the microphone on a choir at a concert of a vocal and instrumental group. They are very discreet (I have two) on a microphone stand in front of the chorus and compared to other microphones on poles above the chorus, they have nothing to envy a shoeps (CMC5 + MK40) or a Sennheiser (K6 + M64). At least a distance of a good meter of the source because it is by approaching the mricro that we hear more the difference between two microphones.
I expect to be able to use it on a battery or brass to have a better idea of ??its quality in close sound.

Shure Beta 98A / C

Christoph685, 01.05.2013
I've tested the Shure Beta 98A / C as a microphone for a flute. The sound is first-class, very clean, warm and unobtrusive in the treble, with good presence and above all much volume in the lower pitches, which makes this micro different from many others.

The processing is as expected very good, of course you have to be such small microphones generally be careful and feel.

Particularly positive to mention is the suspension. The small clamp sits on a rubber loop that is screwed onto the tripod adapter. With a little crafting experience you can use the flute adapter Schoeps FA-1 a very well dampened dampening noise to mount the microphone to the flute when the screw from the tripod adapter is unscrewed and attached to the flute adapter.
The only criticism is that the phantom adapter does not have a switch, in order to be able to unstack the micro also times unheard.

Ultimately a very good (branded) microphone with practical equipment and very high-quality processing at a reasonable price!
