    Product Description

    The Shure Beta 87A is a precision-engineered supercardioid condenser vocal microphone with an exceptionally smooth frequency response. Built to withstand extreme sound pressure levels, the Beta 87A is ideal for professional sound reinforcement and studio recording applications - and constructed to withstand the rigors of touring.

    Shure Beta 87A Features

    • Smooth frequency response with gradual presence rise
    • Highly consistent supercardioid polar pattern provides superior gain-before-feedback.
    • Electronic low-frequency roll-off compensates for proximity effect
    • Wide dynamic range (117 dB) and low distortion characteristics
    • Very low susceptibility to RFI and electromagnetic hum
    • Advanced cartridge shock-mount system absorbs mechanical shocks and reduces handling noise
    • Built-in pop filter reduces undesirable wind and breath sounds
    • Reliability for years of trouble-free performance

    The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.

    The Beta 87 has consistently been a top choice of performers and audio technicians around the world due to its superb accuracy and detail, and rich vocal production. This long-standing favorite now features a new design and has been renamed the Beta 87A. In response to user requests, Shure has redesigned this microphone by just slightly thickening the handle for a more comfortable feel when hand-held. In addition, the Beta 87A now includes the A25D break-resistant swivel adapter.

    Shure Beta 87a - A Sure Thing!
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is a really great microphone! After online reviews of many different microphones, I decided to give this microphone a trial run. Being a Shure product, I knew the realibility factor would be there. The construction is really good, and the sound is even better. I have a low baritone voice and this microphone is just what the doctor ordered. There is nice low end without boominess and the mid's and highs are just right to bring openess to the voice. This is a very clear and open sounding microphone. You can look at other manufacturers products, but you can't beat a Shure. Believe me I know I have been in the music business for a long time. Try it, it may be what you are looking for!

    Smooth & Silky Just what I was hoping for.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    After doing as much research possible i.e. youtube, talking to people, I decided this mic would give me what I was lacking from my shure SM58. It did exactly that. I was looking for more of a smoother tone quality with some warmness. This mic delivered.
