The Shure Beta Microphone Series
BETA 87A is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.
The BETA87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the boomy sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.
→ Premier live performance microphone with Shure quality, ruggedness, and reliability→ Uniform supercardioid pick-up pattern for maximum gain before feedback and superior rejection of off-axis sound→ Smooth, wide frequency response with gradual presence rise and controlled proximity effect tailored for vocals→ Advanced cartridge shock mount system absorbs mechanical shock and minimizes handling noise→ Dent-resistant steel mesh grille and enamel coated metal alloy construction resist wear and abuse→ Effective built-in pop filter reduces undesirable wind and breath noise→ Very low susceptibility to RF and electromagnetic hum
