BETA 98H/C Clip-on Condenser Instrument Microphone Terminated to 4-Pin Mini-Connector (TA4F)
The Shure Beta 98H/C (also available as the WB98H/C for use with wireless systems) is a premium cardioid condenser instrumental microphone that clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or onto the rim of percussion instruments. The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint allows the microphone to be easily positioned and secured in place, and an isolation shock-mount reduces the transmission of instrument “key noise” and other mechanical noise. A gooseneck angle brace is included to provide better retention of the microphone placement during more active performances.
Features & Benefits:
• The Beta98H/C features a 3m (10 ft.) high-flex cable with attached preamplifier (XLR connection).
• The WB98H/C features a 1.6m (5.3ft) high-flex cable terminating in a 4-pin mini-connector, for use with wireless bodypack transmitters.
• Tailored frequency response for open, natural sound reproduction
• Compact, lightweight construction provides a low degree of visibility
• Interchangeable microphone cartridges are available:
• RPM108 - Cardioid cartridge
• RPM110 - Supercardioid cartridge
• Gooseneck, ratcheting swivel joint, and gooseneck angle brace allow for optimum placement and fixed positioning
• Legendary Shure ruggedness and reliability
The Beta 98H/C features transformerless preamplifier circuitry, which improves linearity across the full frequency range. The pickup pattern of the Beta 98H/C provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. Its high maximum sound pressure level (SPL) enables it to handle the extreme demands of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. The microphone is supplied with a snap-on windscreen, a storage bag, a gooseneck angle brace, and a cable management device. The preamplifier is attached to the microphone via a 10-foot high-flex cable and requires 11–52 Vdc phantom power.* *Where phantom power is not available, use the Shure WB98H/C with the MX1BP battery-powered preamplifier.
