Niles, IL (June 9, 2010)–Shure Incorporated has introduced the Beta 27, a side-address, supercardioid condenser microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement.
The mic was developed in response to audio engineers’ desire for a condenser mic that offers better isolation of the sound source. The Beta 27’s supercardioid polar pattern is designed to target the sound source for fine detail in demanding acoustic environments.
Features include a one-inch, externally biased, 24-karat-gold-layered Mylar diaphragm; switchable (three-position) low-frequency filter; -15 dB switchable attenuator; internal pop filter; and more. The Beta 27 carries a two-year limited warranty.
“Live acts have been using cardioid large-diaphragm condenser mics for years, on drum overhead and guitar/bass cabinets,” says Chad Wiggins, Shure’s category manager for wired products. “But for some big stages, engineers want more focus and better isolation of the sound source. That’s what the Beta 27 offers. Plus, it’s durable and it travels light–that’s a must for touring acts.”
