The Shure Beta 98AD/C is a precision-engineered compact, high-output miniature 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. Comes with the A98D drum mount with a flexible gooseneck that makes precise mic placement for toms, snares, and hand percussion a breeze.
External in-line preamplifier for discrete cable placement
Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback Superior rejection of off-axis sound
Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications
Wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
Flexible gooseneck for precise placement and easy adjustments
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
Clipping Level (1 kHz at 0.25% THD): 1000 Ohm load: 1.0 dBV (1.26 V) (THD of microphone preamplifier when applied input signal is equivalent to cartridge output at specified SPL)
Self-Noise (typical, equivalent SPL, A-weighted): 30 dB SPL

Comments about Shure Beta 98AD/C Drum Mic:
I have been searching for a mic stand that clips onto my djembe. This one allows for practice and performance use, without getting in the way of my hands. The sound quality is also great.
