Shure Beta 98D/S - Snare/Tom Miniature Microphone with Drum Mount
The Shure Beta 98D/S is a high performance mini-condenser microphone designed to excel at professional sound reinforcement or recording. Its ultra-uniform supercardioid pickup pattern provides high gain before feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. In addition, you can order an optional cardioid cartridge for the Beta 98D/S that lets you easily adapt the mic to different applications.
As the successor to the popular Shure SM98A, the Beta 98D/S features several notable improvements. Dynamic range is 4dB greater, as is headroom, while maximum SPL is 5dB higher (now 160dB!). Physically, the Beta 98D/S utilizes a thicker, beefier detachable Triple-Flex cable.
With the unique A98D microphone drum mount (supplied), no other rim-mounted microphone stays more securely in place than the Beta 98D/S. This hardware has been redesigned for quicker, more secure, rim-mounting without the need for a drum key. Its flexible gooseneck lets you position the mic in practically any configuration, so you get a virtually unlimited choice of sound options. Its unobtrusive design and compact size help the Beta 98D/S reduce stage clutter to an absolute minimum.
