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

Great quality mic
trumpetplanet, 17.07.2018
I'm a professional trumpet player and I use this mic for playing in a range of different bands. The sound quality is consistently good. I was actually pretty surprised the first time I used it.
Having the mic a constant distance from the bell makes my sound in the mix much more consistent. I have also used this microphone for simple trumpet tutorial videos and it's plenty good enough for that.

A great addition to you microphone stock
Jerry H., 26.08.2013
Purchased initially for Brass section in Live sound application and found them far better than a Mic an a stand for managing levels, isolation and quality, as you aren't in the lap of the gods as to where the performers point their instrument! First time out I was caught out by the sax player who decided after the soundcheck to move his instrument stand right next to the foldback speaker during the first number and got hit by the obvious feedback when he placed his instrument down before I could mute the channel! Have used them now live and in studio for brass, percussion and acoustic strings and found them to give a good all round performance, and well worth the money.
