Product Details

Shure Beta 98AMP/C Drum Mic

The Beta 98AMP/C drum microphone combines an integrated preamplifier with a miniature cardioid capsule to provide a smooth, natural tailored response for drums and percussion. The Beta 98AMP/C has a wide dynamic range and has a sound pressure level (SPL) capability 7dB higher than other Beta 98 versions. The uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control. The Beta 98AMP/C has a miniature design that lets it be positioned in spaces where a full sized mic won't fit, and the included A75M universal microphone mount allows accurate and secure placement in any configuration. Includes a flexible gooseneck, snap-fit windscreen, and zippered carrying pouch.
