Shure Beta 98AMP Miniature Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone Details

The Shure Beta 98AMP/C is an updated version of the wildly successful Shure Beta 98 mini-condenser. Instead of being a package of several different components, everything is conveniently integrated into a whole unit consisting of microphone capsule, gooseneck and preamplifier. It's perfect (legendary, in fact) for mic-ing up toms on a drum kit. Combine it's great forward sound together with it's extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern, excellent gain-before feedback, off-axis rejection of unwanted noise, and high maximum sound pressure level (SPL), you have a winning choice for getting the best sound of what you want to capture while avoiding what you don't want to have as a part of your signal.

The Shure Beta 98AMP/C comes with the Shure A75M Universal Microphone Mount, allowing you precise placement on the range of percussion instruments from snare drums, to toms, to hand drums, to timbales and congas.

So, if you're shopping for great sounding drum microphones that have a really small footprint and that can give you a virtually unlimited array of placement options, the Shure Beta 98AMP/C is the perfect choice.
