OVERVIEW

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.

SPECIFICATIONS
Type: Electret Condenser
Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz
Polar Pattern: Cardioid
Output Impedance: 179 Ohms
Sensitivity (at 1 kHz, open circuit voltage): -48.0 dBV/Pa (4.0 mV)
Maximum SPL (1 kHz at 1% THD): 1000 Ohm load: 144 dB
Signal-to-Noise Ratio (referenced at 94 dB SPL at 1 kHz): 64 dB (S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self noise, A-weighted)
Dynamic Range (at 1 kHz): 1000 Ohm load: 114 dB
Common Mode Rejection (20 Hz to 20 kHz): > 50 dB
