A large diaphragm supercardioid condenser mic that greatly minimizes bleed from off-axis sound sources.

The Beta 27 side-address condenser microphone is precision engineered for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording applications. Its flat frequency response and low self-noise provide unerring performance in demanding environments whether they are on stage or studio. A tight supercardioid pattern and 3-position switchable low-frequency filter help reduce unwanted background noise, counteract proximity effect for consistent, extended low-end, and give you high gain-before-feedback. It's tailored for superior transient response thanks to its low-mass, 1" externally-biased, ultra-thin, 24-Karat gold-layered Mylar diaphragm.

Supercardioid polar pattern specifically targets the sound source consistently with greatly minimized bleed from off-axis sound sources
Tailored for superior transient response from a low-mass, 1" externally-biased, ultra-thin 24 Karat gold-layered Mylar diaphragm
Flat, neutral frequency response for natural reproduction on stage or in the studio
3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect for consistent, extended low-end
-15dB switchable attenuator handles extremely high SPLs with ease
Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
Internal pop filter with three separate mesh layers reduces wind and breath noise

With the Beta 27 you can be sure you'll capture the sounds you want, not the noises you don't. Order now!
