Product Details

Shure Beta 98A/C Instrument Mic

The Shure Beta 98A/C is a compact, high-output, 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. Its high sound pressure level (SPL) capability makes it useful for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and strings. This microphone requires phantom power and performs best with a 48 VDC supply. Comes with an external in-line preamplifier, RK282 shock-mount swivel adapter, 7.6 m (25 ft.) light-weight cable, snap-fit windscreen, and zippered pouch.

  • Type: Electret Condenser
    Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz
    Polar Pattern: Cardioid
    Output Impedance: 179 Ohms
    Sensitivity (at 1 kHz, open circuit voltage): –48.0 dBV/Pa (4.0 mV)
    Maximum SPL (1 kHz at 1% THD): 1000 Ohm load: 144 dB
    Signal-to-Noise Ratio (referenced at 94 dB SPL at 1 kHz): 64 dB (S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self noise, A-weighted)
    Dynamic Range (at 1 kHz): 1000 Ohm load: 114 dB
    Common Mode Rejection (20 Hz to 20 kHz): > 50 dB
    Clipping Level (1 kHz at 0.25% THD): 1000 Ohm load: 1.0 dBV (1.26 V) (THD of microphone preamplifier when applied input signal is equivalent to cartridge output at specified SPL)
    Self-Noise (typical, equivalent SPL, A-weighted): 30 dB SPL
    Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3
