Shure Beta 98 S

Condenser Miniature Microphone

The Shure Beta 98/S is a compact, high-output condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. Its extremely uniform super-cardioid pickup pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. Its high sound pressure level capability (SPL) makes it useful for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and strings. The Beta 98S is also suitable for use with a guitar amplifier.

The Beta 98S, depending on the model, is delivered with an shock-absorbing swivel adapter (Beta 98S) or the A98D drum mount (Beta 98D/S). The A98D drum mount comes with a specially constructed gooesneck that allows highly flexible positioning of the microphone and holds it securely in place. The Beta 98S comes with a windshield, case, preamplifier and a connection cable.

very effective

lezarb, 19.08.2014
Very good microphone live, no complaints about the sound, Not used in the studio, may be the cable is a long, it would have been two, one course and a long
Otherwise damage that the clamps are so expensive ... I would like to buy several types ... to adapt the microphone on several different instruments

Absolute recommendation for drumms and alustikgitarre. For the guitar I use a suction cup "Gecko" and get perfect result.
