Product Description

Shure BETA 98AD/C Miniature Cardioid Condenser Drum Microphone - Miniature Cardioid Condenser Drum Microphone. Includes RPM626 In-Line Preamplifier, A98D Drum Mount and 25’ Cable

The Shure Beta 98A is a precision-engineered compact, high-output miniature condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off-axis rejection of unwanted noise.

Both Beta 98A configurations feature high sound pressure level capability (SPL). Beta 98AD/C includes A98D drum mount with flexible gooseneck that makes it an essential, accurate choice for toms, snares, and percussion.

• Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control
• Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
• Precision-engineered design for unobtrusive microphone footprint
• Beta 98A models ship with external in-line preamplifier for discrete cable placement, snap-fit windscreen, and zipper pouch
• Beta 98AD/C ships with A98D drum mount featuring a flexible gooseneck for precise placement and secure attachment

• Type: Electret Condenser
• Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz
• Polar Pattern: Cardioid
• Output Impedance: 179 Ohms
• Sensitivity (at 1 kHz, open circuit voltage): –48.0 dBV/Pa (4.0 mV)
• Maximum SPL (1 kHz at 1% THD): 1000 Ohm load: 144 dB
• Signal-to-Noise Ratio (referenced at 94 dB SPL at 1 kHz):

64 dB
S/N ratio is difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self noise, A-weighted

• Dynamic Range (at 1 kHz): 1000 Ohm load: 114 dB
• Common Mode Rejection (20 Hz to 20 kHz): > 50 dB
• Clipping Level (1 kHz at 0.25% THD):

1000 Ohm load: 1.0 dBV (1.26 V)
THD of microphone preamplifier when applied input signal is equivalent to cartridge output at specified SPL

• Self-Noise (typical, equivalent SPL, A-weighted): 30 dB SPL
• Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3
• Weight: Net: 12 g (0.6 oz.)
• Connector: Three-pin professional audio (XLR), male, balanced
• Power Requirements: 11-52 Vdc phantom, 3.6 mA
