great mic at the lowest price anywhere

  • Excerpt: I bought this clip on mic to use with my Tenor and Alto sax. I was originally using a beta 87 on a stand, so at first I was worried about considerable quality loss: not so! I even use it with the cheaper shure pgx wireless system and it sounds great! I am gonna have to buy another one soon to keep them ready on both saxes instead of switching....I should have bought this years ago.
  • Pros: Clear Sound

A great Product

  • Excerpt: This a quality product that sounds great. I don't have a Shure wireless system and was hoping the mini XLR(TA4F) connector would fit my Carvin wireless belt pack. It did and I'm delighted[...]Also, the price was one of the best on the web. The only slight problem I'm working with right now is that the mic won't clip onto the bell of my clarinet. The clip isn't wide enough and doesn't open wide enough. However, I'm delighted to have this mic.

Beta 98 DS is outstanding

martigon1, Ebay
20 December 2008
  • Summary: I've used these mics forever on drums. They have great isolation and you won't find another mic that can mount easily to just about any rim out there as the Beta 98. The adjustable rim clamp is well thought out. It's a splendid system and saves you the mess and hassle of using three stands on the toms if you use three of these. The look is much cleaner as well. They are best for live.

Nice natural sounding Sax wireless mic

29 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Very pleased with this mic. Purchased to replace original SM98 mic for tenor sax on older Shure Wireless system. This one has a much better, sturdy and more manageable integrated clip and Sounds very natural. Only down side for horn players is that it still requires a belt pack, but sounds better than the Samson or AMT Airliner type systems.
  • Pros: Durable, Good detachable wndscreen, Good flex clip assembly, Lightweight
