Shure Beta 87A
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.
