The Shure Beta 87A is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.

The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the “boomy” sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.

    Comments about Shure Beta 87A Supercardioid Condenser Microphone:

    The BETA 87A is a special breed of condenser microphone. Sporting a highly consistent supercardioid pattern with null points at approx. 125 degrees. These null points mean you can get great isolation from other singers and instrumentalists, as well as from stage monitors.

    Do you handle the microphone a lot, and vary it's distance while singing? Well this mic is for you! With a low roll off proximity effect the BETA 87A allows you to get in close to the mic and not distort your voice with that boomy quality we often associate with closeness to a microphone.

    The BETA 87A has a vary wide dynamic range of pickup as well, up to 117 DB!
