There's a reason why Shure microphones are the industry standard for live performance situations. If you've ever sung onstage, chances are you've sung into a Shure mic -- and chances are, it worked exactly the way it was supposed to. Leave it to Shure to create the Beta 87A: a handheld vocal condenser microphone that delivers a big step up in sound quality, without compromising the ruggedness that makes Shure mics indispensable in live situations.
Condenser microphones, with their delicately suspended diaphragms, are generally excellent at picking up every nuance of a given source. Their crisp, clear high-frequency response makes for airy, detailed vocal recordings. In the controlled environment of the recording studio, studio engineers surround these delicate instruments with shock-mounts and pop filters before carefully hanging them in front of a vocalist. But what about in a live situation? Enter the Shure Beta 87A. With its three-stage pop filter and cartridge shock mount built right into the mic, this is one condenser mic tough enough to actually hold in your hand. The sound you get from a Shure studio condenser can now join you on stage.
As every sound-reinforcement pro knows, feedback occurs when a microphone starts to pick up its own reproduced sound coming back through the speakers. In a performance situation, with vocalists (and microphones) directly in front of loud stage monitors, avoiding feedback is a constant concern. Since most condenser mics "reach" farther than their dynamic-mic cousins, they are generally prone to feedback onstage. Not so with the Beta 87A. Its tight supercardioid pickup pattern has much better off-axis rejection than just a mere cardioid. That means it picks up the vocalist in front of it, not the sound from the stage monitors to its sides and rear -- and that translates to higher gain before feedback.
In addition to suppressing feedback, the Beta 87A's narrow pickup pattern is ideal for picking up an individual voice in a multi-microphone setting. Need to reinforce small group vocals? Give each singer her own 87A to give the mix engineer better control over the group's balance. Singing solo for an acoustic gig? This mic's supercardioid pattern will allows you to "work" the mic, picking up amazing detail even several inches away and adding extra warmth when you croon up close. And if you're singing in an aggressive rock band where your vocal tends to get buried, try this clear, crisp stage condenser to help your voice cut through the mix. No matter the situation, this mic is a top choice of pro vocalists who demand studio-quality vocal reproduction in a live-performance situation.
