Its clip is designed to clamp onto the bell of your sax, woodwind, or brass instrument, or on the rim of your percussion instrument. It can handle an SPL of up to 155 dB, making it well suited for the volume levels of most brass, woodwind, or percussion instruments.

BETA-98H/C - Clip-On Condenser Microphone
The Beta 98H/C is a cardioid, mini-condenser instrumental microphone with in-line preamplifier is designed to clearly capture the sounds of today's professional horn players. The pickup pattern of the Beta 98H/C provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. With a high maximum sound pressure level (SPL), the Beta 98H/C is ready to handle the demands of brass and woodwind instruments, and is a strong performer for percussion applications. The transformerless preamplifier circuitry of the Beta 98H/C improves linearity across the full frequency range. In situations where phantom power is not available, the MX1-BP battery-powered preamplifier will perform exceptionally.
The integrated gooseneck and ratcheting swivel joint of the Beta 98H/C allows for easy microphone positioning and securing. Once the position is determined, the gooseneck angle brace ensures that the Beta 98H/C will stay in place during even the most active performances.
