Superior off-axis rejection when using the Shure BETA 98AMP/C cardioid condenser microphone.

The Shure BETA 98AMP/C Cardioid Condenser Microphone is a precision-engineered miniature instrument microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. Features an integrated XLR preamplifier with a flexible gooseneck and the A75M Universal Microphone Mount for accurate placement in any configuration of toms, snares, or percussion. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback, off-axis rejection of unwanted noise, and high maximum sound pressure level (SPL).

  • Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control
  • Precision-engineered design features integrated preamplifier and XLR connector to maximize setup efficiency while minimizing stage clutter
  • Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
  • Flexible gooseneck for precise placement and easy adjustment
  • Ships with A75M Universal Microphone mount with quick release, for versatile and secure instrument and/or stand mounting
