Product Details

What is the Beta 98AD/C best suited to?

This premium drum microphone is ideal for use with snares, toms and percussion. 

What are the characteristics of the Beta 98AD/C?

An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback and off axis rejection of unwanted noise.

What is the difference between the Beta 98AD/C and the other versions of the Beta 98?

The Beta 98AD/C is a cardioid condenser drum microphone and comes complete with the A98D drum mount which features a flexible gooseneck. The Beta 98A/C is the same microphone minus the drum mount. The Beta 98 AMP/C features an integrated preamplifier.

Also available are supercardioid versions (Beta 98S & Beta 98D/S).

Please note - any Beta drum microphone featuring the letter 'A' following the model number contains a new capsule and as a result you can expect a more natural high frequency response.
