Shure BETA 98AMP/C Miniature Cardioid Drum / Instrument Microphone

    The Shure Beta 98AMP Mic is a precision-engineered miniature cardioid condenser 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).

    Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3

    Power Requirements
    11™ 52 V DC[4] phantom power (IEC-61938), 5.5 mA

    Net Weight
    130 g (4.6 oz.)

    [1] 1 Pa=94 dB SPL
    [2] THD of microphone preamplifier when applied input signal level is equivalent to cartridge output at specified SPL
    [3] S/N ratio is the difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self noise, A-weighted
    [4] All specifications measured with a 48 Vdc phantom power supply. The microphone operates at lower voltages, but with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity.
