Article number: BETA 98AMP/C-3PK
Availability: Ships from manufacturer
Delivery time: Normal delivery time is 2-7 business days, subject to availability.

The Shure BETA®98AMP is a precision-engineered miniature cardioid condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. Features an integrated XLR preamplifier with a flexible gooseneck and the A75M Universal Microphone Mount for accurate placement in any configuration of toms, snares, or percussion. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback, off-axis rejection of unwanted noise, and high maximum sound pressure level (SPL).


  • Uniform cardioid polar pattern provides maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound for smooth high-end response and control
  • Precision-engineered design features integrated preamplifier and XLR connector to maximize setup efficiency while minimizing stage clutter
  • Frequency response tailored for drums and percussion applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
  • Flexible gooseneck for precise placement and easy adjustment
  • Ships with A75M Universal Microphone mount with quick release, for versatile and secure instrument and/or stand mounting
  • Furnished with snap-fit windscreen and zipper pouch
  • Includes 3 Beta 98AMP/C Microphones and 3 A75M Universal Microphone Mounts
