BETA® 87A - BETA® 87A Vocal Microphone
Give your singing the spotlight.


BETA® 87A Vocal Microphone

Add some studio-grade clarity to the live mix. Designed to capture brighter vocals with sparkling accuracy, the BETA® 87A brings more crisp to the concert. And the increased presence will have everyone singing your praises.

How It Works

One of the world’s best selling single-element condenser mics, the BETA 87A puts singers on a pedestal. Tailored frequency response 
concentrates on the upper midrange to raise vocal presence in the mix. So voices cut through clearly and resonate deeply with your audience.

Why It's Better

Set your singing apart

The supercardioid pattern provides maximum isolation of your voice, giving you the chance to shine.

Control the bass

Get right up on the mic without overwhelming the sound. Electronically controlled low-end roll-off keeps your bass from blasting over the mix.

Resists rattle

The advanced cartridge shock-mount system lets you handle the mic a little harder while absorbing any mechanical noise.
