Suspended Choir Mic Selection

Date Updated: October 16, 2019 FAQ #2384
Question:
I am about to purchase 6 suspended choir mics for our church. I have a local dealer that has let me test the Beta 98 miniature mics. I was impressed at the "gain before feedback" that these mics exhibited. I have not tried the MX202 series. My questions are:1. Compare the MX202 vs Beta 98 for this application. Pros & cons.2. What is the highest professional quality, miniature suspended mic Shure offers for suspended choir pickup?
Answer:

1. Compare the MX202 vs Beta 98 for this application. Pros & cons.
* No need. The Beta 98 is designed for close miking of very loud instruments. It is NOT a good choice for choir miking.
2. What is the highest professional quality, miniature suspended mic Shure offers for suspended choir pickup?
