Ideally suited for live performance and recording applications, the new low-profile Beta 91 and the miniature Beta 98D/S represent the latest additions to Shure's Beta family of professional sound reinforcement microphones. Both feature all-new designs from the ground up.

The Beta 98D/S is a miniature condenser unit designed expressly for toms, featuring a maximum SPL rating of 160 dB (at 800 ohms), and a frequency response tailored for this application. Its consistent supercardioid pattern insures excellent isolation and maximum gain before feedback, while the mic's small size reduces stage clutter.

Each Beta 98D/S microphone comes with Shure's new A98D drum mount. Equipped with a flexible gooseneck, the A98D can be employed in either horizontal or vertical configurations on drum rims, cymbal stands, or virtually any typical stage hardware.

On a working level, the Beta 98D/S comes with a detachable preamplifier to facilitate rapid cable/preamp replacement or repair. Small, positive-locking windscreens are also provided for outdoor use and added cartridge protection. Optionally, the standard supercardioid cartridge can be interchanged with a cardioid unit as required.

The Beta 91 is Shure's successor to the SM91, the mic that popularized the use of condenser boundary microphones in kick drums. Outfitted with a cardioid capsule which supplies formidable amounts of attack and low-end punch, the Beta 91 provides excellent gain before feedback, and rejection of unwanted noise. The mic's minimalist design and extra-slim profile is best utilized without hardware, simply resting on a pillow or blanket within the kick drum. Like the Beta 98D/S, it comes standard with a detachable preamp section and durable connecting cable.
