An ideal drum microphone for use with snares and toms, the Shure Beta 98AMP is a compact, high-output, condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. An extremely uniform cardioid polar pattern provides excellent gain-before-feedback, off-axis rejection of unwanted noise, and performance in high sound pressure level (SPL) environments.

The Beta 98AMP condenser instrument mic features an integrated preamplifier with XLR connection, a flexible gooseneck, and is packaged with the A75M Universal Microphone Mount accessory for precision adjustments and minimal stage clutter. This instrument microphone has a wider dynamic range with a SPL level 7dB higher than Beta 98AD/C and the Beta 98A/C. The Beta 98AD/C condenser microphone is for the same applications and instead contains an A98D drum mount which features a flexible gooseneck.

For over two decades, Shure Beta Microphones have been the choice of top touring and recording professionals for capturing fine details in demanding acoustic environments. Each specialized model is precision-engineered for focused, accurate reproduction of the intended source. Recognized for their superior construction, low handling noise and high gain-before-feedback, Beta Microphones redefine sensitivity and control for essential, expert sound reinforcement.

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.

The Beta 98AMP/C Instrument Microphone is great for:

  • Tom-toms
  • Snare drums
  • Cymbals
