The Shure Beta 98/S is a compact, high-output supercardioid condenser microphone for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording. Its extremely uniform supercardioid pickup pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. Its high maximum sound pressure level (SPL) makes it useful for a variety of instruments including drums, piano, reed, wind, and string. The Beta 98/S can also be used for amplified guitars.
