A Beta Kinda Live Mic!Everyone knows that the days of keeping condenser mics confined to the studio is over, right? Funny thing though, few mic makers seem to be on board with that. Look around, and you'll see that most live setups feature the same couple of mics on amps and instruments as always. Maybe it's tradition, but really, it's just sad. Swap out your dynamic amp or instrument mic with a Shure Beta 27 condenser any day, and you'll know why. This marvelous side-address microphone will add life to your live sound, no matter what you use it on.
They key to the Beta 27 is that it's incredibly flat - no funny bumps here or dips there, just straight-up 20Hz to 20kHz. That means you can dial in the sound you want, even if the sound you want is just what the instrument sounds like in the first place. And while lots of recording engineers also love the Beta 27 in the studio too, its tight, supercardioid pickup pattern and robust build make it perfect for the stage. Pick up a Shure Beta 27, and be prepared to add another favorite to your mic collection!
