The Beta 98AD/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Shure is essentially a Shure Beta 98A accessorised with a drum mount and a heavy-duty cable. The package is intended to perfectly mount and position the Beta 98A on any stand and is recommended for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and strings. Its cardioid polar pattern effectively minimises off-axis feedback and noise, and its tailored frequency response reproduces drums with pristine results. The Beta 98A's high SPL response captures transients without noise and distortion. Its miniature profile is ideal for close positioning, without interfering with the performance.

Key Features

  • Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control
  • Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
  • Precision-engineered design for unobtrusive microphone footprint
