    Good sensor for Saxophone

    Shure Beta 98H/CPublished on 03/19/14 at 09:55
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Shure Beta 98H / C used only on Tenor Saxophone.
    Taking stage and studio
    Very good head - Cardioid - low bp Larsen
    Requires 48V phantom power
    Clip flag with gum to avoid scratching the finish.

    OVERALL OPINION

    5 years of use without pb
    The sensor has not moved,
    Not motion blurred resistant foam pop
    Value Prices correct: Good choice


    The thread seems a bit fragile.
    I reinforced sheath side of the head as opposed XLR is quite heavy.
    The connection between small and large head cable XLR / console cable is not against nature.
    Sometimes there had bp cable contacts console (or impedance or other?), And therefore frightening spitting into the PA.

    The connection between small and large head cable XLR / console cable is not against nature.
    Sometimes there had bp cable contacts console (or impedance or other?), And therefore frightening spitting into the PA.
    Since I place the whole thread (rather than tucked into the reel and head XLR worn on a belt) and I put the XLR connector on the ground in order to keep it stationary: more than bp.

    I'm happy with my choice what I kept a good memory of a kind AKG C519

    Type: sound, sound
    Technology: capacitor

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years
    I bought the first model D (drum) to the drum recordings. I now have 4 of the model D (drum) and a H / C (winds).
    I use the H / C for trumpet and trumpeter me to borrow from his other gigs.
    I consider the HC beta98 as a good mic sound. It is discrete. The fact of the clipper on the instrument is ideal for musicians who can not even stay at the microphone.

    I use the Beta 98H to take his right hand on my accordion. This is an electret microphone ncessitant the phantom power.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year and a half and all the sound engineer that I had t have surprised your exact instant of sound: qualisation do and almost no gain standard. I have tried before I liked the C419 in its time but I will never in rear! The beta limit 98H much better feedback and a more "rich". As against this mic is a bit expensive (385), the purchase is a little sick to your exact finances, but worth it. It's not that I hsitation Rasht.

    Very good microphone!

    It is a condenser microphone condenser, cardioid. Version H / C means it has a clamp for instrument (brass type) on the microphone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it on my saxophone for a year and a half live in the studio. Before buying it, I had compared to the E608, ATM35 and ATM350. Of these three the only microphones that hold the road was the ATM35 (no longer marketed and is replaced by the ATM350. The problem is that the ATM350 has not at all the same features and, hence, does not sound the same at all! So if you want to seek an ATM35 on the second hand market).

The problem is that the ATM350 has not at all the same features and, hence, does not sound the same at all! So if you want to seek an ATM35 on the second hand market).

    The characteristic I like most is that his faithful renders a Beta98! Sound engineers sonorisent me, I have often said they only open the bracket to make it sound (I mean is that the treatments after the microphone is really minimal). Thing I found in or register in my returns on stage.
    In addition, it is really strong: imagine the microphone on the sax, the issuer of HF in the pocket and the cable between the two ... It happened to me when I am falling or lowering the cable get caught in my legs, and suddenly, in the movement, although his shot. And although it is still there! No welding is again! Nothing!
    Another feature I like about the Beta98 is that it also works great for percussive sounds like toms, snare, percussion (congas, bongos ,...). Aaaah versatility.
    And the characteristic I like least, I still looking ...

    The price / quality ratio is rather interesting. I bought this micro system with HF (SHURE SLX) that's why I returned to the microphone instead of € 180 € 250 ... I use it very often I walk my system and HF Beta98 wherever I play, and frankly, in a year and a half, I've never had any worries. This is the microphone that is the most expensive of those mentioned above, but seriously, it's worth it. I had a E608 before, it is certainly cheaper, but I had one of his "duck" with my saxophone and quasi-compulsory treatment (EQ and compressor) ... So I decided to put some more money for material robust, reliable and faithful!

    It is a condenser microphone that requires phantom power

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's seven months that I use and my group began to go wrong so I not had the time to enjoy

    Before I used a paper clip taped to the E604 (yes!) But the sound was too dull (not top for a festive group at the edges) and it seemed to have no fishing and it was then not very practical the gaffer! I also tried standing microphones, sm57, sm58, beta58 without much satisfaction!

    What I like about this mic is really highlighted that fishing, and especially the comfort it brings back stage, clarity of sound that really relieves the trombonist in turn, limits the feedback, Rumble, I have never had the time if I rem…

    What I like about this mic is really highlighted that fishing, and especially the comfort it brings back stage, clarity of sound that really relieves the trombonist in turn, limits the feedback, Rumble, I have never had the time if I remember correctly because the sound technician is not required to ride me hard in the back so that I hear me. The mic clip is also handy. Only problem is that I find the cable that is really late, which I think is very fragile once I leave and I wound capacitor gaff behind the clip and let slip the XLR.

    The price / quality ratio is very good especially since I got it on thomann 220euros (maybe a promo, it is 250 right now) 'short end very happy with this microphone and yes I would do probably seen this choice as for now I have nothing better tested!
