Comments about Shure SLX2/BETA87A Wireless Handheld Transmitter Microphone:

The Beta87A wireless is one of my go-to mics of choice for churches and live performance venues alike. The capsule has very good noise rejection, which really helps when your performers like their stage monitors cranked to the max. The 87 has a great full body sound, on both male and female vocalists, but isn't so finicky that a volunteer announcer sounds bad. My only complaint is that Shure tends to be proud of its products price-wise, but you get what you pay for. If you use in-ear monitors instead of stage wedges, try the 87C capsule instead of the 87A. It has a wider pickup pattern (cardioid pattern on the 87C vs hyper-cardioid on the 87A), which gives it more forgiveness if your vocalist isn't as well-versed in microphone handling techniques.
