      A miniature mic with a SPL capability suitable for drums and horns.

      The Shure Beta 98A/C is a compact, high-output, condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain before feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise. Its high sound pressure level (SPL) capability makes it useful for a variety of acoustic or amplified instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and strings. This microphone requires phantom power and performs best with a 48 VDC supply. Comes with an external in-line preamplifier, RK282 shock-mount swivel adapter, 7.6 m (25 ft.) light-weight cable, snap-fit windscreen, and zippered pouch.
