    Every positive comment about this microphone is right on. I finally have found a mic that captures every resonance, and clarity. I have used it to record and perform live. This is an amazing tech. that delivers real results. I bought it based on reviews without trying it out first, and it was the best mic purchase I have ever made. This mic has a quality that far exceeds the initial investment.

    Best PA vocal mic I have ever used., April 9, 2012

    In my home studio I have several condenser mics (Rode NT1,AKG and Audio Technica. The sound of a good condenser on vocals is a must for pro sounding recordings. Shure has managed to bring that sound to the stage for use in live performance. I have a decent Mackie based PA system (Mackie mixer and Mackie active speakers) and I must say that every positive reveiw is true. This is the best live vocal microphone I have ever used. For the past 25 years I have been faithful to Shure SM58 mics for vocals but now I am hooked on the Beta 87A. Yes they are expensive but if you can afford it they are worth it. Borrow one if you can and you’ll see what I mean. If you have a high quality PA system you should have a high quality microphone and this is it.

    Warning: The Shure Beta 87A (87 and 87C) along with the Shure Beta 58 are heavily counterfeited and sold on sites like Ebay and Craig’s list. They look almost perect and come in perfectly duplicated Shure boxes with warrenty cards, mic pouches and mic collars. The first thing to check for if you get one is to see if it is actually a condenser mic. Most of the counterfeits out there are poor sounding dynamic mic capsules. Turn off your mixers phantom power and if the mic still works it’s a dynamic fake not a real Shure condenser. Do a Google search for more ways to spot the fakes.

    Studio mic in your gig bag, May 22, 2012

    If you sing for a living, you deserve a Beta 87. It captures every nuance, rasp and grain of your voice in live performance, on par with many studio mics costing as much or more. You don’t have to baby it, it’s built like a tank and performs flawlessly in any weather.

    A built-in electronic bass roll-off circuit lets you set the EQ on your mixer once and forget it. The clarity and quality of your voice remain basically the same. No Bruce Banner when it’s far away, no Incredible Hulk when it’s close, it’s always balanced, warm and clean.
    To guarantee break-proof operation, Shure offers no switches of any kind on its wired mic line. So you should choose the pattern or circuitry you want by the model.

    The Beta 87A is supercardioid (for venues or stages where the monitors are to your side)
    The Beta 87C is cardioid (for club dates, bars or pickup bands, monitors are directly in front of you)
    The SM87A has no bass roll-off circuitry, it has a black casing so you know the difference.

    Not to be obvious, but there’s no reason to use this wonderful microphone unless the rest of your P.A. system or audio interface is of equal quality.
