The Beta 87A™ is consistently a top choice of performers and audio technicians around the world due to its superb accuracy and detail, and rich vocal production. This premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone has exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level (SPL) 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.
In response to user requests, Shure has redesigned this microphone by just slightly thickening the handle of its predecessor the Beta 87, for a more comfortable feel when hand-held. In addition, the Beta 87A now includes the A25D break-resistant swivel adapter.
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.
