  • Shure Beta 4.0 Microphone

    There are 2 for sale on my local Craiglist for 50 bucks. I am in the market for some overheads. Will these do the job well and are they worth the 50.00?

      Thanks Rez for the document. I do remember the Beta Green series but not the quality. Anyone ever use these? Sorry for asking. Still playing catch up on gear in the pro audio world.

          I though the Beta Green's were marketed as an "affordable" option.

            Well I was going to buy the Audiopile 300C set and it looks like that is a better option than these I am guessing.

              Lots of stuff is marketed as more affordable. That doesn't mean that it's "good".

                That's kinda why I left it at affordable.

                  I own a BG 5.0 vocal mic (condenser)... Sounded great and had almost no handling noise due to the internal shock mount on the element. It's no longer working... Probably something to do with the on/off switch.

                    Thanks everyone. I think I will stick with the Audiopile 300C set. I have been super pleased with everything I have from EWI so far. I only brought it up because it showed up on CL this morning.

                      i have a couple BG6.0 mics i got for near nothing, had them stolen and got two of the three back for near the price i paid for the three (yes, if you get robbed, the cops find it, you may have to buy it back)

                      in the case of the mics i have, they work ok on high toms, congas, things like that. quality = ok. i dont think the BG are horrible, but i dont think i would put $50 into a pair.
