Perfect for all vocal applications.

The Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic is a new take on an old classic. The Beta 87 was consistently a top choice of performers and audio technicians due to its accuracy, detail, and rich vocal production. Now this longstanding favorite has been redesigned as the Shure Beta 87A. It has a thicker handle that gives a more comfortable feel when hand-held. It also includes a new break-resistant swivel adapter and low-frequency roll-off to compensate for proximity effect and to prevent boominess. The supercardioid pattern provides high gain-before-feedback, and its 3-stage pop filter minimizes breath pop and noise. Frequency response: 50Hz-18kHz.

Requires phantom power.

Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic Features:

  • Supercardioid electret condenser mic
    Redesigned with a thicker shank for hand-held comfort
    Break-resistant swivel adapter
    Low-frequency roll-off
    3-stage pop filter
    50Hz-18kHz frequency response

  • A very fine vocal mike

    As reviewed by rmyAddison on 4/24/2007

    I have been playing since the 70's, and used Beta 58's forever. The Beta 87A makes the 58's sound muddy and poorly defined, almost the difference between speaking with someone live versus over the phone. A wonderful stage mike and it doesn't get too boomy when you get close (proximity effect). Excellent feedback resistance also, highly recommended.

  • best condenser in this price range!

    As reviewed by Daniel on 11/24/2006

    This microphone is fantastic. I have used it many times before I got my Neumann kms microphone. This is the microphone you can get before Neumann kms or Shure ksm9. It sound very crispy and clear. If you have strong and husky voice, it will sound amazing! This microphone is very well-built and designed. If you are able to affort it, run to get it now!

  • Worth Every Penny

    As reviewed by Jill on 1/25/2010

    My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas, and I was upset with how much it cost him, but I finally used it the other night at our gig, and it was the best sound Ive ever heard. Im in a rock band, so its very loud, and hard to hear my self, it was great, I loved every minute of it, I cannot wait to use it again.
