Shure Beta 87C Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The cardioid version of Shure's venerable Beta 87 handheld condenser mic, the 87C has a wider pickup pattern that makes it ideal for monitoring with in-ears.

Excellent for touring professionals, the BETA 87C premium vocal microphone delivers studio-grade performance and a smooth, extended high-end frequency response in a cardioid condenser design.

The microphone adds warmth to the frequency response and creates an ideal environment for personal monitoring. And its highly consistent cardioid pattern offers excellent rear rejection.

Vocalists who use personal monitor systems such as Shure PSM will appreciate how effectively the BETA 87C rejects ambient sound from the rear of the microphone.

I purchased this mic from zZounds resealed for a discounted price. Like new, cant tell a difference!Needed it for an extremely loud male thrash punk singer in studio. It performed as expected handling his plosives and shouting. It will also.serve as my new stage mic. I specifically chose the 87C over the 87A as its geared more for male voices. The 87C captures a little more of the low frequencies than the 87A and has much more presence than an SM58 which always sound a little dead or flat to me. This is a really nice upgrade from a 58. If I had to compare the 87C to another mic the closest thing would be an EV410 which I used to put on lead singer in studio for live radio broadcast with full band.To my delight the 87C is able to handle more SPL with more clarity than my Sterling ST55. Usually when I have a loud male singer blaring into the ST55 the bottom end gets a little garbled on the recording. Not the case with the 87C. Good clear definition through all the frequencies. In studio with the thrash singer I wanted that SHURE sound but not quite that over blown screaming into a 57 sound. Mission accomplished. Super happy with my purchase. Kudos to my sales rep John M for the help choosing the resealed. Only gave it an 8 on recommendation because a lead vocal mic can be so specific to the singer and purpose.Home studio set upWindows 10CPU i5 10th genDual SSD 1 Tera byte each16GB RAMREAPER FL STUDIO 20MOTU M4 is the bomb BTW.
