Why We Love This Product!

This Little Condenser Mic is a Big-time Drum Mic!

Tired of trying to shoehorn that clunky condenser mic into the perfect position on your drums? Just when you think that magic mic placement is out of reach, along comes Shure with their mighty mite of a drum mic, the Beta 98AD/C. It's small enough to get to those tight spots on toms, snare drums, and percussion instruments, but don't think for a second that this little guy is anything less than a monster mic. Nope, the Beta 98AD/C sounds totally amazing, and its cardioid pattern means sound leakage from surrounding drums, cymbals, and other instruments is kept to a minimum. Use it onstage. Use it in the studio. Use it on all kinds of stuff. Once you start using the Beta 98AD/C, you'll keep using it. It's that good.
