Can I plug a wired Beta 98 into a wireless bodypack?

FAQ #1233 Updated September 24, 2008


Hello, I have a Beta 98 clip mic, and I want to use it as a wireless mike. Is there any possibility to use it with the wireless transmitters (like the UC1)? The microphone needs 48V phantom power.


Yes, the Beta 98 can be used wireless. If you unplug the microphone from its preamp, that 4-pin TinyQG connector will plug right into the UC1 or any Shure bodypack. You will not use the barrel style preamp when using the microphone wireless.

The preamp requires 11-52 volts phantom power. The capsule itself requires 5 volts of bias, which is supplied by either the preamp or the wireless bodypack.
