About the Shure BETA 27

The Shure Beta 27 Side-address Condenser Microphone features a large gold-layered diaphragm and a natural frequency response well suited for capturing vocals and instruments in recording and live sound applications. The versatile Beta 27's supercardioid polar pattern is most effective in minimizing off-axis noise and feedback. A 3-position low frequency roll-off filter switch minimizes low frequency noise and a -15 dB pad switch maximizes headroom while capturing transient peaks.

Shure BETA 27 Includes

  • Shure BETA 27 Supercardioid Side-Address Condenser Microphone
  • Stand Adapter
  • Padded Zippered Carrying Bag
  • Shure Warranty

Shure BETA 27 Features

  • Supercardioid polar pattern specifically targets the sound source consistently with greatly minimized bleed from off-axis sound sources
  • Tailored for superior transient response from a low-mass, 1" externally-biased, ultra-thin 24 Karat gold-layered Mylar diaphragm
  • Flat, neutral frequency response for natural reproduction on stage or in the studio
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect for consistent, extended low-end
  • -15 dB switchable attenuator handles extremely high SPLs with ease
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Internal pop filter with three separate mesh layers reduces wind and breath noise
