Overview

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.

Features
  • 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
Specifications
  • 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)
