A miniature condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording.
The Shure Beta 98AD/C is a precision-engineered compact, high-output miniature condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise. Comes with the A98D drum mount with a flexible gooseneck that makes precise mic placement for toms, snares, and hand percussion a breeze.
- External in-line preamplifier for discrete cable placement
- Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback Superior rejection of off-axis sound
- Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications
- Wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
- Flexible gooseneck for precise placement and easy adjustments
Order a versatile mic tailored for drums and percussion applications.
Beta 98AD/C Drum Mic Specifications:
