The Shure Beta 98AD/C is a precision-engineered compact, high-output miniature 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.
The Shure Beta 98AD/C features high sound pressure level capability (SPL).It includes an A98D drum mount with flexible gooseneck that makes it an essential, accurate choice for toms, snares, and percussion.
