Product Details

Features

The Shure WB98H/C (the wireless version of the BETA®98H/C) is a premium cardioid condenser instrumental microphone that clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or onto the rim of percussion instruments. The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint allows the microphone to be easily positioned and secured in place, and an isolation shock-mount reduces the transmission of instrument 'key noise' and other mechanical noise. A gooseneck angle brace is included to provide better retention of the microphone placement during more active performances.

WB98H/C with 5.3 ft. cable terminated to 4-Pin Mini-Connector.

Features

  • The WB98H/C features transformerless preamplifier circuitry, which improves linearity across the full frequency range.

  • Its high maximum sound pressure level (SPL) enables it to handle the extreme demands of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments.
  • Tailored frequency response for studio quality performance
  • Wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
  • Uniform supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of off-axis sound
  • Optional A98D drum mount is unobtrusive and versatile--allows precise positioning of the microphone while holding it firmly in place
