Features
  • External in-line preamplifier for discrete cable placement
  • Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback Superior rejection of off-axis sound

    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.
