Good Sound, Fair Mechanics

Comments about Shure Beta 98H/C Clip-On Condenser Microphone:

I've had this mike about a year and have used it on my sax consistently during that time. The only complaint I have is that the goose neck and clip are not very robust. The goose neck on the first one I had broke, but Shure replaced the entire unit with no questions. I find it difficult to "aim" the mike squarely in the bell of the sax because the neck isn't flexible enough. The sound, however, is very good. The mike requires "phantom power" and some of the lower end mixing boards may not provide this, but most do. It is fairly hot and so far has no distortion or hum. The chord is very small and frail looking, but so far has proven road worthy.
