Developed for discerning live sound professionals, the new Beta 27 large diaphragm supercardioid condenser microphone accurately targets sources like acoustic, wind and electric instruments for concise, accurate sound with a minimum of bleed.

High-Quality Performance

The Beta 27 has amazing performance, with low self-noise, consistent, highly directional polar response, exceptional low-frequency reproduction, extremely high SPL handling, high output level, extended frequency response, no crossover distortion.

Use with Many Instruments and Applications

It's designed for a variety of instruments and applications, including electric guitar and bass amplifiers, brass and woodwind instruments, orchestras, choirs, and wind ensembles, overhead miking of drums and percussion instruments, close-miking of acoustic instruments such as piano, guitar, violins, drums, and percussion, low-frequency instruments such as double bass and kick drum and vocals and speech.

This microphone also comes with a Stand Adapter and Padded Zippered Pouch.

Features/Specifications:

  • 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 lowend
  • -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.
  • Includes Stand Adapter and Padded Zippered Pouch
