Shure Beta 98H/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Microphone

A sturdy clip, swivel joint and adjustable gooseneck make the Shure Beta 98H/C mini condenser mic an excellent option for reinforcing brass, reeds and more.

The Shure Beta 98H/C is a premium cardioid condenser instrument 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 mic to be easily positioned and secured, 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.


- The Beta 98H/C features a transformerless preamplifier circuitry which improves linearity across the full frequency range.
- The pickup pattern 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 Beta98HC features a 3 m (10 ft.) high-flex cable with attached preamplifier (XLR connection)
- Tailored frequency response for open, natural sound reproduction
- Compact, lightweight construction provides a low degree of visibility
- Gooseneck, ratcheting swivel joint and gooseneck angle brace allow for optimum placement and fixed positioning
- Legendary Shure ruggedness and reliability

"Can't beat it."
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
I'd replace it with same mic because of the quality of the sound.
This is one of the better sounding mics for a sax. I use it for all types of live music. I use it with a PG14 wireless set-up.
It comes with 2 wind socs.
Ease of Use
simple to use, just plug it in.
the cable is the only weak part it can be delicate, but has a good warranty.
Manufacturer Support
had a mic quit and shure was right on top of it and fast turn around.
The Wow Factor
needed light weight and great sound. it has low visibity so doesn't detract from the horn.
