Static small brass east ....


How to transplant a sousaphone (a big hlicon for those who do not know)?? Beta 98H / C. Microphone that clips to the copper roof and the case is played ... It goes down well, and has an acute ar Retailer without being aggressive, in short, finally a microphone that meets the "big brass". I tried all kinds of dynamics, some transplant ingnieurs s'vertuant me with microphones type E602, I took the fifth, I bought this one, even when test APRS , and no longer have the leg over, I branch on a system-HF SLX1 SLX4, and happiness ... Now, on a trumpet, I blame him a tip to agressivit 2-4kHz, which must be corrected lgrement, like many of the rest shure, but it is a register or the instrument is particularly rately "pchu" ... On sax, live, there's probably better, but much more expensive, it's top and well respected trs the timbre of the instrument, the tnor in particular, gives a serious or sitting wide at its ... The accordion also suits him perfectly, or in a register Bandonon, it will capture much of its heat.
Trs really a good sensor for the brass, he respects the players and especially their sounds ... It sounds more and more rel wide ar an sm57, trs good mic "pass" when it costs a copper in the SM and even in the beta, a magical feeling overwhelms us, SOUND is finally ...
To live, when one is copper, it is the choice, price all in all, quite reasonable in terms of performance.

But even when there is a "great" mic in sound ....

I use the Beta 98H to take his right hand on my accordion. This is an electret microphone ncessitant the phantom power.


I use it for a year and a half and all the sound engineer that I had t have surprised your exact instant of sound: qualisation do and almost no gain standard. I have tried before I liked the C419 in its time but I will never in rear! The beta limit 98H much better feedback and a more "rich". As against this mic is a bit expensive (385), the purchase is a little sick to your exact finances, but worth it. It's not that I hsitation Rasht.

In good sound, always placed.

Type: sound, sound
Technology: capacitor


I use it for 3 years
I bought the first model D (drum) to the drum recordings. I now have 4 of the model D (drum) and a H / C (winds).
I use the H / C for trumpet and trumpeter me to borrow from his other gigs.
I consider the HC beta98 as a good mic sound. It is discrete. The fact of the clipper on the instrument is ideal for musicians who can not even stay at the microphone.

Good sensor for Saxophone

Shure Beta 98H / C used only on Tenor Saxophone.
Taking stage and studio
Very good head - Cardioid - low bp Larsen
Requires 48V phantom power
Clip flag with gum to avoid scratching the finish.


5 years of use without pb
The sensor has not moved,
Not motion blurred resistant foam pop
Value Prices correct: Good choice

The thread seems a bit fragile.
I reinforced sheath side of the head as opposed XLR is quite heavy.
The connection between small and large head cable XLR / console cable is not against nature.
Sometimes there had bp cable contacts console (or impedance or other?), And therefore frightening spitting into the PA.
Since I place the whole thread (rather than tucked into the reel and head XLR worn on a belt) and I put the XLR connector on the ground in order to keep it stationary: more than bp.

I'm happy with my choice what I kept a good memory of a kind AKG C519
