Especially when it comes down to performance and versatility, the Beta98D/S is a first-choice mic for toms, snares and other percussion instruments. It’s a permanently polarised miniature condenser microphone which is used primarily for applications involving professional audio amplification or sound recording. Featuring a very uniform supercardioid pickup pattern, it provides high feedback resistance and maximum rejection of background noise. A cardioid capsule is available optionally and allows you to easily adapt the mic to different applications.

No other rim-mounted microphone stays more securely in place than the Beta 98D/S using the unique A98D microphone drum mount. The flexible gooseneck allows accurate placement of the mic on the instrument using almost any configuration giving you virtually unlimited choice of sound options. Its low-profile design and compact dimensions contribute to reducing stage clutter to an absolute minimum. The Beta 98D/S is a rugged microphone which is even capable of maintaining its excellent performance when utilised for every-day use on stage. Named Beta98S, the microphone is also available without the drum adapter.

MP-Rating: Sonically, the Beta98D/S convinces by its balanced and brilliant condenser sound. A great mic that is suitable for many percussion instruments. 6 Stars
