Product Details

Shure ULXP24/BETA87A Handheld Wireless Microphone System

The Shure ULXP24/BETA87A Handheld Wireless Microphone System includes the ULX2 Handheld Transmitter fitted with the Beta 87A Microphone capsule, and the ULXP4 Diversity Receiver. Shure ULX Standard UHF systems represent a breakthrough in performance and price for both working musicians and professional sound installers. ULX Professional systems offer more advanced features and controls, including lockable settings and group scan function. Over 1400 selectable, pre-programmed frequencies are available, and Automatic Frequency Selection provides a straight shot to a clear channel.

ULXP4 Wireless Diversity Receiver

The expanded feature set of the ULXP4 wireless receiver, with advanced settings and controls including lockable settings and group scan, offers a direct path to full, clear audio signals. The ULXP4 offers an exceptional value in both performance and price, for both working musicians and sound installers.

ULX2 Handheld Transmitter

The ULX2 Handheld Transmitter has a 3-segment battery fuel guage, Backlit LCD shows group and channel, Frequency and power settings, and Control lockout.

Beta 87A Vocal Microphone

The Shure Beta 87A is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.

The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the "boomy" sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.
