BETA 87A VOCAL MICROPHONE
This condenser mic features a Supercardioid polar pattern to provide maximum isolation of your voice and is designed to capture brighter vocals with sparkling accuracy.
BETA 181 SIDE-ADDRESS CONDENSER MICROPHONE
This mic is special due to its interchangeable capsules. For the performance, we went with the Bi-directional, but also available are Cardioid, Supercardioid and Omnidirectional for all your recording needs.
BETA 52A KICK-DRUM MICROPHONE
Made for drums, but also great for amps, this mic can handle extremely high SPLs and features a Supercardioid pattern to concentrate on the source and block out interference from other drums or instruments.
Featuring a Supercardioid polar pattern for focused recording and high gain-before-feedback, the BETA 27 also has low self noise for natural reproduction and is tailored for a superior transient response.
