Shure WB98 H/C

Miniature Instrument MicrophoneThe 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, a swan neck fixation and a cable holder. The preamplifier can be operated with any 11 - 52 volt phantom power. Where there is no phantom power, the WB98H / C can be used with the battery powered MX1BP preamplifier.

Excellent Mic

Matt6153, 22.10.2014
I have 3 of these microphones and use them either with a TQG-XLR converter or with the Line6 XD-V55 wireless systems to mic up soprano saxophone and diatonic accordion on stage.

The sound quality is perfect for my needs, it is bright (cuts through) and it picks up the whole range of my instruments (including the lower bass frequencies from the accordion).

The mics are very directional and feedback is minimal, even when the stage sound is very loud (with full drum kit and monitors); a high frequency occasionally feeds when you get too near to a monitor (similar to the AKG clip on series which I used before), but an engineer can easily trap it if it becomes a problem.

My only issue is that the cable is a little flimsy and it could be longer... it would be easy to damage if you trod on it by mistake. This is a shame as the mic / chassis itself seems very durable and the clip is strong. I normally use the included cable tidy to shorten it as much as possible, then clip it into a tougher cable before it hits the floor.

Shure WB98 Microphone for Saxophone

Jean-BaptisteB, 23.05.2011
Being a professional saxophonist, I sought the best compromise between solidity, sound and price.
The sound is very neutral, the clamp is very well designed, and the dynamics at the rendezvous.
The microphone really only larsen to stick to the return, which is really appreciable in difficult conditions of concert.
it takes very little of the surrounding sounds.
It is preferable not to focus it perfectly on the roof, and not to incline too much towards the roof to obtain a homogeneous sound on all the range of the saxophone.
Perfect!!
