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.

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.

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
