About Shure 87C

The Shure BETA 87C is a high output condenser microphone that provides touring professionals with studio-quality sound. Vocalists who use in-ear monitor systems such as the Shure PSM'¼ Personal Monitor System will appreciate how effectively the BETA 87C rejects ambient sound from the rear of the microphone.

The BETA 87C maintains its cardioid pattern throughout its frequency range, ensuring maximum isolation from other sound sources and high gain before feedback. Its warm, natural sound is the result of an exceptionally smooth frequency response that includes a slight presence rise. A controlled low frequency roll-off compensates for proximity effect and prevents the boomy sound often associated with close-up use.

The BETA 87C is an excellent choice for professional studio recording, yet it is built to withstand the rigors of touring. It maintains its performance characteristics even at sound pressure levels as high as 139 dB SPL. Plus, the cartridge is protected by a proven shock mount system. A hardened steel mesh grille with a built- pop filter provides added protection.
