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

Super Clear Tone

By Siby Varghese

from Huntingdon Valley, PA

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

I bought this mic a couple of months ago from GC and I was a bit hesitant because of the price...and the SM58 was much cheaper and sounds pretty good. But I'm very very pleased that I went with this mic instead The clarity that comes through is amazing. Everywhere I've used this mic so far..people come up to me with rave reviews about how pure and clean the sound was on the mic. It's also excellent for recording purposes..especially live!

A very fine vocal mike

By rmyAddison

from Texas

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

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 vocal mic in its price range

By jacqueslilavois

from Duarte, CA

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

The Shure Beta 87 is a standard for live vocals. The headroom and sound on this mic is what you need to cut through the mix. Compared to a Shure SM58, there is a huge difference in response. You can sing easier because you don't have to work as hard. This vocal mic comes as close to a Nuemann KMS105 as you can get without spending more than twice as much. I've used this mic for years and it is by far the best bang for the buck when it comes to live vocals.

Super mic!!!!

By cdpromusic

from Phoenix, Arizona

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

I have used a lot of microphones (Shure SM58 Beta58, Shenshizer E835)These are just a few of them.These are very good mic's But when it cames about 87A I don't want to look back to those other mics. It has the most natural sound for my voice.I will recomand this Shure 87A to everyone who is looking for natural sound.I don't have any problems with it.

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.

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

I was a little scared to buy a condener mic for live use for fear of major feedback. When i first pluged it in i was amazed! Sounded Great!! then at a show just as amazing and didn't feed back at all. I am so happy with my purchase!!

Worth Every Penny

By Jill

from hauppauge, new york

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.

WOW!

By betaman

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Mic:

I was most pleased with the clarity of this mic. I have never heard myself speak so clearly, and as I am speaking, even I the speaker feel as though I am the audience. This mic is that good. I would recommend it for live performances as well as recording. If you want to sound good, you need the Shure Beta87A!

    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.

Whether you're screaming or whispering, this mic will amplify the sound very well. It's also excellent for recording purposes..especially live! The built-in shockmount is also a huge plus and reduces unwanted interference.
