Shure BETA 98H/C

The Shure Beta 98H/C is a premium cardioid condenser instrumental microphone that clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or onto the rim of percussion instruments. The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint allows the microphone to be easily positioned and secured in place, and an isolation shock-mount reduces the transmission of instrument key noise and other mechanical noise. A gooseneck angle brace is included to provide better retention of the microphone placement during more active performances.

Shure Beta 98H/C Features

  • The Beta98H/C features a 3m (10 ft.) high-flex cable with attached preamplifier (XLR connection).
