The Shure Beta 87A vocal microphone is precision-engineered to deliver an exceptionally smooth frequency response in a supercardiod condenser design. Built to withstand extreme sound pressure levels (SPL), the Beta 87A is ideal for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording applications. The tailored frequency response, combined with a controlled low-frequency roll-off, makes this microphone ideal for close-up lead and background vocals—especially in high SPL environments. An advanced cartridge shock mount system, hardened steel-mesh grille, and superior build quality withstand the rigors of daily touring and sound reinforcement.

How it Works
One of the world' 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.

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.

Features:

  • Premier live performance microphone with Shure quality, ruggedness, and reliability
  • Uniform supercardioid pick-up pattern for maximum gain before feedback and superior rejection of off-axis sound
  • Smooth, wide frequency response with gradual presence rise and controlled proximity effect tailored for vocals
  • Advanced cartridge shock mount system absorbs mechanical shock and minimizes handling noise
  • Dent-resistant steel mesh grille and enamel coated metal alloy construction resist wear and abuse
  • Effective built-in pop filter reduces undesirable wind and breath noise
  • Very low susceptibility to RF and electromagnetic hum
  • Includes swivel adapter and carrying/storage bag

HAND-HELD EXCELLENCE!

AS A FRONT-OF-HOUSE ENGINEER, ONE OF MY BIGGEST FRUSTRATIONS IS A VOCALIST WHO "WORKS THE MIC". MOST VOCAL MICS LOSE ALL OF THEIR WARMTH WHEN YOU BACK OFF, AND/OR DISTORT WHEN YOU "EAT" THEM. NO MORE! THIS MIC SOUNDS AWESOME NO MATTER IF YOU'RE RIGHT ON TOP OF IT, OR A FOOT AWAY. I CAN'T GET A BAD SOUND OUT OF IT! THANK YOU, SHURE!

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!
