Overview

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.

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

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      Just picked this up today, after reading many positive reviews. This is by far the best vocal mic I have ever used. Singing into this cuts through the mix beautifully, and the clarity and power of the mic really improves my vocals. No worries about placement, etc., just sing into it and you will sound better than ever before, I guarantee it. Wish I could afford two of them! I was able to push this so it cut through the mix with zero feedback! It rejected the ambient sounds around it, and this is just in my home studio, where the speaker system is close by. I expect this to perform wonderfully on stage at my next gig.

      best mic for the price

      By Joshua

      from Akron, Ohio

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      I've been performing my own gigs for about 5 years now, and I also have been leading worship for my church for around 6 years. I had always sworn by the SM58's (extreemly durable, great sound) and thought that I would never switch from using them. however, no matter how well they performed it always seemed like something was missing from my vocals. This all changed when I bought my first beta 87a. Ever detali and inflection in my voice could be heard. Many people who had regularly heard me sing commented on how much better the sound quality was when I first used it! I have never had such detailed and clear sounding vocals in a live setting. I even started using this mic to record in my studio. It is top quality for a very reasonable price! If you have never used a condensor to perform live I highly reccomend it and reccomend this product! You won't regret buying this and may even want to buy more as a back up! I'll keep my SM58's but they will only gather dust as I continue to use this fine piece of equipment

      Excellent mic!

      By adam neil

      from Hesperia, CA

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      I've been using this mic for the last six years as the worship leader at my church. It is terrific, I can easily hear the difference between this mic and even an SM58 (which is also a good mic, no dis intended) but the beta is much more rich and full. Also it is very durable and dependable (its been dropped a bunch of times but still works great) after six(plus)years it still rocks. Plus I gotta say it looks nice, which doesn't hurt.

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      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.

      Great Mic!

      By Kates

      from Mountain View, CA

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      I nervously bought this mic as an all purpose mic. I was concerned about how it would do with feedback being that our band of six is consistently crammed into small spaces. It has done wonderfully! We just recorded a "live" demo and the mic never gave us feedback. It picks up EVERYTHING and my voice has never sounded so clear yet warm!

      Shure Beta 57 A

      By Jim

      from Jersey

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      Hmmm. Imagine a mic that gives a vocalist an edge. An ability to sear through and over loud instrumentation. This is THE microphone! I've used the industry standards, and the high-end studio mics. This is the microphone for projecting your voice through the mains in a live setting in a way that seems to contradict conventional experience. After the gig, you're not as hoarse because, you don't have to work as hard. You may actually find yourself changing up your breathing, adding inflection and pop scoops that you never would have thought of before. Give the SM 58 to the background vocalists. But for leads, buy this mic. You'll have no regrets!

      Great mic... but beware of tight spaces.

      By wppts

      from Greensboro, NC

      Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

      I have used the beta 87a for a variety of situations. I specifically bought it for use on stage during my solo acoustic performances. i started playing with it in a small venue where i had my back basically in the corner of the room and a large crowd of people very close to me. the beta 87a was way too sensitive to all the noise bouncing off the walls behind me and cut out. other than that, it has been fantastic for recording vocals in my home studio. i have even used it to record some acoustic guitar and it has performed exceptionally well. i am a little hesitant to use it in smaller venues now, though.
