The Beta 98AMP features high sound pressure level (SPL) capability, making it an excellent choice for drums and percussion instruments. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise. The Beta 98AMP/C's preamplifier is built into a robust metal housing, the element itself is on a flexible gooseneck, and each 98AMP/C includes an A75M mount. The A75M facilitates quick and easy mounting on virtually any drum (or stand), and allows you to place the microphone precisely where you want it. In addition, each Beta 98AMP/C ships with a zippered bag and snap-fit windscreen. Add the unequaled sound quality and rugged reliability Shure is known for world-wide, and you've got one of the finest drum mics to come along in quite some time. Requires phantom power; 48V is recommended, but the units will operate with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity on voltages as low as 11V.
