This Instrument Mic Is Perfect for Stage and Studio!

You want the best live sound possible. So, don't compromise your sound just because you can't get the kind of isolation you get in a controlled studio environment. Use Shure's supercardioid Beta 27 condenser on drums, amp cabinets, and instruments, and you'll love the combination of premium sound quality and isolation that it gives you. This side-address mic is a perfect fit for performers and producers who record live shows. It makes everything you put it on sound great, and it's built tough enough to handle the rigors of the stage.

What makes this mic such a winner? In addition to its very convenient side-address configuration and supercardioid pickup pattern, the Beta 27 gives you a very flat response, so you don't have to tweak all those hyped frequencies. What it "sees" is what's really there. This flat response also makes the Beta 27 perfect for studio use. Need to tame some low end before it gets to the board? Use the 3-position low-frequency filter. This mic's built-in pop filter also keeps wind noise at bay. Try this mic and be prepared to give it a permanent place in your rig!
