Shure BETA 27
For over two decades, Beta Microphones have been the choice of top touring and recording professionals who demand the accurate reproduction of fine details, sensitivity and control. The precision-engineered Beta 27 builds on this legacy by providing the only large diaphragm side-address supercardioid condenser microphone suitable for demanding acoustic environments.
Boasting a low-mass, externally-biased, ultra-thin 24 karat gold-layered Mylar diaphragm to deliver a superior transient response, the Beta 27 also includes a three-position switchable low-frequency filter to reduce unwanted low frequencies, an internal pop filter constructed with three separate mesh layers, and gold-plated internal and external connectors.
The Beta 27 promises natural reproduction even at high SPLs partially thanks to the inclusion of a -15 dB switchable attenuator, lending it to wide array of potential applications. Likely sources for the model will include guitar and bass amplifiers, drum and percussion overheads, and miking pianos and horns. The mic’s combination of a supercardioid polar pattern and flat frequency response provides strong off-axis rejection, while its polar pattern is designed to ensure high-gain before feedback.
The Shure BETA 27 is a rugged, supercardioid side-address condenser microphone. This is a large diaphragm condenser microphone that will take the constant beating of being on the road. It is great for miking live bass amps, horns and percussion. Gives you the detail a condenser should but the reliability and ruggedness of the Beta Series.
